Justin Fontaine's goal in the seventh round of the shootout gave the Minnesota Wild a 2-1 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.

Fontaine went wide on Eddie Lack and slid the puck under the Vancouver goalie. Darcy Kuemper preserved the win by denying Vancouver's final shooter, David Booth, as he attempted a spin-o-rama shot.

The Wild won their fourth straight, while the Canucks suffered their eighth loss in their last nine games.

Vancouver's Ryan Kesler and Minnesota's Zach Parise exchanged first-period goals.
