Veilleux tallies twice as Wild top Blackhawks

Oct 1, 2008 - 2:55 AM ST. PAUL, Minnesota (Ticker) -- Stephane Veilleux scored his second goal of the game with 24 seconds remaining in overtime as the Minnesota Wild avenged a previous preseason loss to the Chicago Blackhawks with a 3-2 triumph on Tuesday.

Colton Gillies also tallied and Niklas Backstrom finished with 33 saves for Minnesota, which improved to 3-1-0 in the preseason.

Reigning Calder Trophy winner Patrick Kane had a goal and an assist and defenseman Brent Seabrook also scored for Chicago, which has won three of its five preseason contests - including a 4-3 victory over Minnesota on Friday.

In the waning moments of overtime, Mikko Koivu skated down the left wing on a 2-on-1 before sliding a pass to Veilleux, who beat goaltender Corey Crawford with a wrist shot for the game-winning goal.

The 16th overall pick in the 2007 draft, Gillies opened the scoring just 2:22 into the first period, collecting a carom off defenseman John Scott's shot and banking the puck off Crawford's leg and into the net.

Kane responded just over six minutes later as he accepted a feed from Patrick Sharp and wristed a shot past Backstrom to tie the contest at 1-1. The first overall pick in 2007, Kane led all rookies - as well as the Blackhawks - in scoring with 72 points (21 goals, 51 assists) last season.

After Seabrook's power-play goal midway through the second period gave Chicago the advantage, Veilleux squared the contest just 3 1/2 minutes into the third period, poking in a rebound after Crawford had denied defenseman Martin Skoula's shot from the high slot.
