EDMONTON, Alberta -- Mikko Koivu did it all Sunday night for the Minnesota Wild.The 33-year-old Finn capped a fantastic game by scoring 3:11 into overtime as the Wild edged the Oilers 2-1 and improved to 12-1-0 in their last 13 visits to Edmonton.Mikko Koivu did so many things aside from scoring that winning goal, Minnesota coach Bruce Boudreau said.He was 21-2 on the faceoffs. Ive never seen it that high, that kind of percentage for that kind of number youve taken. Im sure someone has been 26-1 at some point, but not too many people have done that. He was out there every time there was an important faceoff. I thought he controlled the game when he was out there. He was a true leader out there.Charlie Coyle also scored for the Wild (12-8-4), who snapped a three-game skid. Devan Dubnyk made 28 saves and improved to 7-1-0 against the Oilers, his first NHL team.Patrick Maroon had the goal for the Oilers (14-10-3), who had won two straight.For us to scratch and claw and get a point, I dont want to say were satisfied, but it was good to get that, Edmonton coach Todd McLellan said. I didnt think we had the energy level and polish that we needed to beat a good defensive team tonight.Edmonton got on the board less than 3 minutes into the game. Dubnyk stopped a point shot by Mark Fayne, but couldnt recover in time to prevent Maroon from scoring his eighth of the season on the rebound.The Wild tied it with 55 seconds to go in the opening period. Coyle was able to muscle in a rebound off Oilers goalie Jonas Gustavssons skate for his ninth goal this season.The shots were tied 23-all after a scoreless second. The best opportunity belonged to Minnesotas Zach Parise, who clanged a shot off the post.The Oilers got a bit of a scare with 6 1/2 minutes remaining in the second when captain and NHL leading scorer Connor McDavid was removed from the game by league concussion spotters after hitting his chin on the ice following a trip by Wild defenseman Jared Spurgeon.McDavid, however, returned for the start of a scoreless third.I was pretty shocked, to be honest, McDavid said of his removal.I hit my mouth on the ice. You reach up and grab your mouth when you get hit in the mouth; its a pretty normal thing. Obviously the spotter thought he knew how I was feeling. He pulled me off. A (rotten) time of the game, too.Minnesota nearly scored midway through overtime, but a review confirmed the whistle had blown before the puck was pushed across the line in a scrum. Soon afterward, Koivu converted on a backhand.Game notes It was the first of three meetings this season between the teams. They play again Friday in Minnesota. ...

Jon Montgomery of Eckville, Alta. LOS ANGELES -- What better way for Scott Kazmir to put his first-inning struggles behind him than pretending to pitch an inning before the game begins.It worked Saturday night. Kazmir survived the first and pitched six scoreless innings, and the Los Angeles Dodgers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-1 for their eighth straight home victory.It was good to get out of that first inning unharmed. It didnt work with the first batter like I wanted, but I was able to get through the first inning and get into a groove, said Kazmir, who hit Charlie Blackmon, the first batter he faced, but stranded him on second base.Kazmir, who gave up four first-inning runs in his previous start, threw 25 warmup pitches before the national anthem, his usual warmup routine. Then a batter then stepped in, and Kazmir threw three simulated at-bats -- righty, lefty, righty.It seemed to lock me in a little bit and get me prepared for that first inning, Kazmir said. Its more just seeing that guy in the box. You get on certain pitches, you get that release point where you want to start pitches. Stuff like that.Trayce Thompson and Adrian Gonzalez drove in two runs each for the Dodgers, and Justin Turner had three hits and scored twice.I think guys are just starting to come around, Thompson said. (Turner), I think it all starts with him. Whenever he has a good game, we usually have a pretty good game as an offense.Kazmir (7-3) extended his unbeaten streak to 10 starts by holding the Rockies to a single and two doubles. He struck out 10 without walking a batter.Since May 9, Kazmir is 5-0 with a 3.61 ERA. He has struck out 65 in 57 1/3 innings during the stretch.Bud Norris and four relievers led L.A. to a 5-0 win in the opening game of the series on Friday night.Weve gotten exactly what weve needed, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said. You win with starting pitching. You sustain winning with it. These guys have come out and pitched well and set the tone for us. And for the offense to respond like they have, some good things are happening.Nolan Arenado led off the ninth inning with a solo home run to left field off reliever Chris Hatcher for the Rockies only run.Prior to the homer, Arenado had gone 0 for 7 with six strikeouts in the first two games of the series. He came into the series with a 12-game hitting streak.Rockies starter Chad Bettis (6-6) lost for the first time in five starts, giving up four runs on six hits in six innings. He struck out four and walked one.The Rockies lost their third straight and had not gotten a baserunner to third base in the series until Arenados homer.We had a sstretch there where we were scoring eight runs a game, Arenado said.dddddddddddd We knew that wouldnt last very long.These guys have pitched well. Bud Norris, we havent really seen him, and Kazmir today was throwing well. He was throwing harder than the last time we saw him. He pitched a good game. Obviously, we shouldve had better at-batsColorado has scored one or fewer runs in six of its last nine games at Dodger Stadium, dating back to May 17, 2015, scoring 17 runs during that span.STEAKING SHORTSTOPDodgers SS Corey Seager lined the first pitch he saw Friday night into left field for a single, extending his NL-leading hitting streak to 15 games. Seager went 1 for 4 and scored twice.I was talking to some of the coaches about Corey, and it doesnt even seem like its any kind of hitting streak or that hes playing any better than he was earlier, Roberts said. This is what he does. I dont even see him as hot.TRAINERS ROOMRockies: LHP Jake McGee (sprained MCL, left knee) was activated from the DL and pitched 2/3 of an inning in the seventh. ... 2B D.J. LeMahieu returned to the lineup after being limited to a pair of pinch-hit appearances the last six games. ...
