Continued: Wild loses Backstrom, but rallies for shootout win vs. Toronto

“I don’t think anyone can be surprised by him anymore,” Parise said of Harding.

It was a maddening night offensively for the Wild. In Toronto last month, Minnesota outshot the Maple Leafs 37-14 and lost. This time it was 34-23, including 13-5 in the second period, and it took a puck off two skates to beat Bernier (33 saves).

It looked as if Mason Raymond’s second-period power-play goal would hold up and Bernier would record his fourth career shutout against the Wild until Parise’s ninth goal tied it.

“Is anyone going to say that we didn’t … outplay them?” Yeo said. “We beat a real good team, and I really love the way our guys competed. We put a lot into that game.”
