Staal, Kunin help Wild recover to beat Oilers 6-5

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) Eric Staal was a gametime decision for the Minnesota Wild, two days after he was injured while colliding with a linesman.

Staal made it through the morning workout without any issues and Minnesota was happy to have its top-line center back in the lineup against the Edmonton Oilers.

After Edmonton rallied from a two-goal deficit in the third period to tie it, Staal scored the go-ahead goal with 4:47 remaining and Luke Kunin added another tally as Minnesota recovered to beat the Oilers 6-5 on Thursday night.
