Kyle Brodziak scored two goals and John Curry (Breck High School) made 43 saves in his Wild debut to lead Minnesota over the struggling St. Louis Blues 4-2 on Thursday night.

Nino Niederreiter added a goal and an assist to help the Wild snap a nine-game losing streak against the Blues and win for the sixth time in seven games.

St. Louis dropped its fourth straight and also lost star T.J. Oshie after he was shouldered in the face by Wild enforcer Mike Rupp halfway through a chaotic second period. Rupp was ejected, Oshie dabbed blood from his mouth as he moved slowly back to the locker room after being down on the ice for 5 minutes.

Kevin Shattenkirk and Jaden Schwartz scored for the Blues.
