Eriksson Ek helps Wild cap road trip with 3-2 win over Ducks

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Joel Eriksson Ek had a goal and an assist, including the game-winning score early in the third period, and the Minnesota Wild capped a successful season-opening road trip with a 3-2 victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday night.

Eriksson Ek ripped a quick wrist shot past Ryan Miller's glove side off a pass from Jordan Greenway 1:53 into the third for his second goal of the season and the eighth game-winning goal of his career.

The win is the third in four games for Minnesota, which is part of the reconfigured West Division this season.
