DETROIT (AP) — Matt Moulson’s goal at 2:15 of overtime gave the Minnesota Wild a 4-3 come-from-behind win over the Detroit Red Wings on Sunday night.

Charlie Coyle had a goal and an assist and Jason Pominville and Zach Parise also scored for Minnesota. Ryan Suter had two assists and Ilya Bryzgalov stopped 13 shots.

Gustav Nyquist scored twice to extend his goal-scoring streak to five games, and Tomas Tatar also scored for Detroit. Jimmy Howard made 21 saves.

The Red Wings beat the Wild 3-2 on Saturday afternoon in St. Paul.

Moulson tipped in Jonas Brodin’s pass for his 21st goal.

Tatar tied it 3-3 with 8:17 remaining in the third with a shot from the right circle off the rush. It was his 16th goal.

Coyle’s goal 4:33 into the third period tied the game at 2. He pushed the puck into an empty net off a goal-mouth scramble. It was Coyle’s ninth goal of the season and second in two games. Parise gave the Wild the lead just 1:45 later when he poked one past Howard for his 24th goal.

Pominville’s power-play goal with 8:03 left in the second period put Minnesota on the scoreboard and made it 2-1. His 27th goal of the season came on a one-time slap shot from the high slot area.

The goal was scored only 10 seconds after Red Wings defenseman Kyle Quincey went off for interference.

Detroit’s Daniel Alfredsson hit the post with 8:30 left in the second period.

Nyquist scored twice in the first period to give Detroit a 2-0 lead.

His first goal came on the power play with 6:15 left in the opening period. He put in a rebound from the left circle. His second, and 23rd of the season, was the result of a breakaway. He made a move and slid a backhand shot past Bryzgalov.

It was Nyquist’s seventh goal in five games. He has a NHL-leading 18t goal since Jan. 20.
