OTTAWA — Jared Spurgeon scored twice as the Minnesota Wild defeated the Ottawa Senators 4-3 on Saturday afternoon.
Jordan Greenway and Zach Parise also scored for the Wild (20-17-3), who played their second of a four-game road trip. Devan Dubnyk stopped 24 shots.
Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel and Mark Stone replied for the Senators (15-22-5), who have now lost seven straight (0-6-1).
Anders Nilsson made 22 saves in his Ottawa debut after being acquired Wednesday from the Vancouver Canucks.
The Wild took a 4-2 lead early in the third as Parise jumped on a rebound, but Ottawa made it a one-goal game on Stone’s 20th of the season as he tipped a Cody Ceci shot.
The Senators had a two-man advantage for the last 26 seconds of the game but were unable to capitalize.
