Kirill Kaprizov scored two power-play goals and the Minnesota Wild continued their dominance over the Ducks with a 4-1 victory Wednesday night.

The game was tied 1-1 after two periods before the Wild took control. Matt Dumba scored the go-ahead goal 1:21 into the third when he put in a loose puck in front of the net.

Joseph Cramarossa also scored the Wild, who have won 11 straight over the Ducks, which is the longest winning streak against an opponent in franchise history. Filip Gustavsson stopped 32 shots.


Pavol Regenda scored his first NHL goal as the Ducks dropped to 0-9 in games decided by two goals or more. John Gibson made 35 saves.

It is the second time in Kaprizov’s three seasons in the NHL he has scored twice on the power play. The other was in 2021 against Colorado.

Minnesota, which came into the game eighth in the league on the power play, was 2 for 6.

Kaprizov tied the game at 1 at 16:37 of the second period when he redirected Matt Boldy’s shot past Gibson 13 seconds into the Wild’s power play. The Minnesota forward, who leads the team with 10 goals, made it 3-1 when he slipped the puck into the near side of the post after getting a pass from Mats Zuccarello while the Wild had a two-man advantage.
