Zach Parise had a tying power-play goal late in the third period, and then scored in the shootout to help the short-handed Minnesota Wild beat the sliding Arizona Coyotes 4-3 on Saturday night.

Mikko Koivu's shot into the roof of the net in the third round of the shootout won it, after Niklas Backstrom stopped Tobias Rieder's attempt.

Arizona has lost five in a row and eight of nine. It was the Coyotes' ninth consecutive home loss, extending the franchise record.

The Wild, who entered an NHL-worst 1 for 44 on the power play in 14 road games, scored twice with the man advantage.
