Zach Parise scored 27 seconds into overtime to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 2-1 win over the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.
    
With the Wild sputtering on offense once again, Jason Zucker scored for Minnesota with 4:19 left in regulation to send it to overtime.
    
Calgary's Mark Giordano was then given a delay-of-game penalty with 43 seconds to go. The penalty carried over into the extra period, and Parise beat goalie Joey MacDonald for the 4-on-3 winner. Parise's goal was only Minnesota's fourth in its last 41 power-play opportunities.
    
Alex Tanguay scored for the Flames and MacDonald stopped 28 shots.
    
Niklas Backstrom made 20 saves for the Wild.
