Wild’s 14-game point streak snapped by NHL’s top Bruins

The NHL’s top team finally stopped the Wild’s push.

Boston played the spoiler on Saturday afternoon, surviving the Wild 5-2 at Xcel Energy Center to end its franchise-record 14-game (11-0-3) point streak.

It was the Wild’s first regulation loss since Feb. 15.

Aided by two successful challenges from the coach and an own goal by the Wild, the Bruins rallied for their 52nd league-leading win.

The Wild’s Marcus Johansson opened the scoring 9 minutes and 45 seconds into the first period when he completed a tic-tac-toe passing game between Joel Eriksson Ek and Matt Boldy. Then at 1:02 p.m., the Wild scored again, when Matt Dumba scored just once in a pass behind Johansson’s net.

But Boston overturned that goal when the team challenged to check if the play was offside, and video review determined that Connor Dewar had preceded the puck into the zone.

With 1:22 left in the first period, the Bruins scored the equalizer on a tight shot to the side of Jake DeBrusk’s glove before David Pastrnak was counted on the power play at 8:43 of the second period.

The Wild fought back when Matt Boldy squeezed the puck later in the second, but again Boston erased the goal with a successful offside challenge.

At 2:03 p.m., a David Krejci pass entered the Wild net on Johansson’s stick.

After shutting out on four previous tries, including a long 5-on-3, the Wild finally got the power play 7:17 into the third period when Oskar Sundqvist connected for a one-timer. Patrice Bergeron doubled the Bruins’ lead at 12:22, and Trent Frederic scored in an empty net with 1:57 to go.

Filip Gustavsson finished with 33 saves, while Linus Ullmark racked up 29.

Boston went 1-for-4 on the power play.
