Canucks edge Wild

Associated Press

ST. PAUL — Daniel Sedin scored the winner midway through the third period in the Vancouver Canucks’ 3-2 victory over the Minnesota on Thursday night.

Steve Bernier and Pavol Demitra also scored to help Vancouver beat Minnesota for the second time this season. The Canucks are 6-0-2 in their past eight games.

Mikko Koivu scored twice for Minnesota, which lost for the second time in six games — both to Vancouver.

Minnesota reassigned goalie Nolan Schaefer to Houston of the AHL. He was recalled on an emergency basis after Josh Harding missed Tuesday’s pre-game skate because of a lower-body injury.
