Senators Snap Wild Streak Thursday

After a scoreless first period, the Wild trailed 2-1 at the second intermission. Zach Parise scored his 25th goal of the season to briefly tie the game at one before Ottawa pulled ahead on Jean-Gabriel Pageau's goal late in the second.
Erik Haula's 14th goal of the season tied the game at two at 4:33 of the third period, but the Senators scored the game-winner with just under four minutes left in the final frame.
