Wild erupt for five goals

Knight Ridder Newspapers

PHOENIX -- Wake the kids. Get Grandma on the phone. Tear up the front page.

Forget Halley's Comet; the Wild are on a two-game scoring bender, and who knows if they will sleep it off.

Andrew Brunette scored a goal and added two assists Monday night as the Wild overcame two deficits to defeat the Phoenix Coyotes 5-2 in front of 13,462 witnesses to the final NHL game played at America West Arena.

It was a virtual feast for a team drooling for goals. After scoring only 11 in 10 games, the Wild have emerged from their coma to score eight in their past two victories.
