The Minnesota Wild won a game in highly improbable fashion on Saturday night against the Los Angeles Kings.
It appeared that the Kings would take a two-goal lead in the final 40 seconds of regulation on an empty-netter, but their shot hit the post.

That kept Minnesota alive, and in a chaotic sequence, Ryan Suter amazingly tied the game 3-3 with 00.3 seconds remaining in regulation.
