Phoenix Coyotes Put Up Big Numbers But Still Lose To Minnesota Wild, 6-5 OT

St. Paul, MN (Sports Network) - Cam Barker was the unlikely hero, scoring his season's first goal just 46 seconds into overtime to put Minnesota past Phoenix, 6-5.

Barker's one-timer from the point sailed past Coyotes goaltender Jason LaBarbera's glove to seal the Wild's second win in three games.

Andrew Brunette tallied two goals and an assist, while Brent Burns had two helpers and a goal in a game that featured six scores in the final period.

Pierre-Marc Bouchard recorded a goal and an assist in the win, and Jose Theodore made 39 saves.

Ray Whitney posted two goals, while Keith Yandle notched a goal and an assist for the inconsistent Coyotes, who have dropped three of the last four. Scottie Upshall and Ed Jovanovski each lit the lamp, while LaBarbera surrendered six goals on 29 shots.
