ST. PAUL Jesper Bratt Jersey Kids , Minn. (AP) Rookie defenseman Nick Seeler picked up Minnesota’s offense with a timely fight.Eric Staal and Zach Parise scored in the second period after Seeler fought Luke Witkowski, and Jason Zucker added two late goals in the Wild’s 4-1 victory over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.Devan Dubnyk made 28 saves to help Minnesota rebound from losses at Arizona and Colorado.Staal and Parise scored in a 2:57 span to erase a 1-0 deficit. The goals came not long after Seeler traded punches with Witkowski on a delayed penalty, with Seeler protecting Parise after Witkowski attempted to check the star forward.”I just thought, you know what, good time to step up,” Seeler said. ”We were down 1-0. I thought it was the right time.”Sunday was just Seeler’s 12th career NHL game. The 6-foot-2, 200-pound defenseman has just two assists thus far but has added grit to a Wild team that has needed some toughness as it jockeys for playoff positioning.Seeler’s opponent, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound Witkowski, is no stranger to NHL fights.”I think I owe him a steak dinner after that scrap Leo Komarov Jersey Womens ,” Parise said. ”Standing up for teammates, you always appreciate that.”Seeler emerged bloodied after the brawl, which included rapid-fire punches from both players. Seeler’s teammates appreciated the effort – and responded by scoring two goals with Seeler in the penalty box.”The guys were on the bench and they’re saying, `We got to go now. If we can’t get motivated for this, then we’re in trouble,”’ Wild coach Bruce Boudreau. ”It was a real opportunistic time when I think we were really flat.”Staal tied it on a power play with his team-leading 34th goal. The forward redirected Jared Spurgeon’s shot past goalie Jimmy Howard with 12:38 to play in the second.Less than three minutes later, Parise completed a tic-tac-toe passing sequence with Nino Niederreiter and Charlie Coyle to put the Wild up 2-1. Minnesota showed plenty of life in the second period after managing just four shots on goal in the first.”I think that’s a big goal in the game, especially in that one, but we can’t look back on the result,” said Detroit captain Henrik Zetterberg. ”At the beginning of the game we played well. I thought we had a good start Womens Kyle Palmieri Jersey , good first period, got the first goal and then they score two quick ones.”Zucker added a pair of goals less than a minute apart, including an empty-net goal with 3:38 to play. He also redirected a pass to give Minnesota some breathing room with a 3-1 lead with 4:18 remaining.Justin Abdelkader scored for Detroit off a rebound at 3:58 of the first period to open the scoring.The Red Wings had a good look at an open net and a potential tying goal midway through the third after Dubnyk was caught out of position behind his goal. Tyler Bertuzzi had a shot, but Spurgeon managed to get in front of the puck to keep it a one-goal game.”It’s an easy time for frustration to build, and there’s nothing wrong with being frustrated now and we should be,” Red Wings coach Jeff Blashill said. ”If you’re not, you probably shouldn’t be a competitor.”NOTES: Detroit has lost three in a row. … Wild F Nino Niederreiter had his 100th career assist and 200th career point on the same play Sunday. He had the second assist on Parise’s goal. … Howard is 14-4-3 against Minnesota. … Staal’s 34 goals are his most in a season since he had 40 in 2008-09 with Carolina.UP NEXTRed Wings: At Boston on Tuesday night.Wild: Host Carolina on Tuesday night. The Anaheim Ducks and Dallas Stars carried their longest winning streaks of the season into December, but each delivered unforeseen duds last weekend, leaving their coaches careful not to grow too optimistic heading into their third matchup of the season Wednesday at Honda Center in Anaheim.The Ducks (16-11-5) had won six of seven games to move into the top three in the Pacific Division, but played uninspired in a 4-1 loss to the visiting Carolina Hurricanes on Friday. Anaheim then took on the New Jersey Devils , the last place team in the Eastern Conference, and needed to rally from three deficits before winning 6-5 in a shootout Sunday.“It takes 60 minutes, and sometimes 65-plus, to win a hockey game and get two points,” Ducks coach Randy Carlyle told the Orange County Register after practice Monday. “That’s really the way we try to approach it, because you’re not going to be perfect every night. You’re going to have your peaks and valleys. You’re going to have some good games, where you think things are going well, and the next game can really be a nightmare.”Article continues below ...The Stars (16-11-3) had won a season-high four straight games before losing 4-2 against the Vegas Golden Knights on Sunday to open a four-game road trip. Dallas didn’t come out with the pace and determination that was evident during the first three games of the winning streak.“I’m a little concerned right now, just because our energy and our emotion the last two games hasn’t been what it was there,” Dallas coach Jim Montgomery told reporters after the loss to Vegas. “We were consistently playing with energy Anthony Mantha Jersey , emotion, and a lot of competitiveness, which comes with those two qualities, and the last two games we haven’t had it.”The Stars have already defeated the Ducks twice this season in Dallas 12 days apart in October.The Stars erased a 3-0 deficit in a 5-3 victory Oct. 13, the only regulation loss through the first seven games of the season for the Ducks.Dallas scored four second-period goals in the first win against Anaheim, and the Stars came back with three in the middle period in the second meeting with Anaheim — a 5-2 win.Anaheim goaltender John Gibson started both games against Dallas and will likely be the starter against Wednesday after coming on in relief against the Devils after Ryan Miller sustained a knee injury at 7:13 of the third period.Miller, who was trying for his 375th NHL win, which would have moved him past John Vanbiesbrouck as the winningest U.S.-born goalie in NHL history, is expected to be sidelined for about six weeks. The Ducks claimed Chad Johnson off waivers Tuesday and he’ll likely be Gibson’s backup.Ben Bishop is expected to make his second start in goal against the Ducks this season.Anaheim forward Ryan Getzlaf needs one point to become the second player for Anaheim to record 900 career points — all with the Ducks.Jakob Silfverberg will try to set a career high by scoring a goal in four straight games.
