ST. PAUL, Minn. - Jason Pominville slipped a shot past Roberto Luongo's glove in the third round of a shootout to lift the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 victory over Vancouver on Tuesday, ending the Canucks' winning streak at seven games.

Luongo made 30 saves, including 14 in the third period and overtime, and stopped Zach Parise to open the shootout. Mikko Koivu, who had two assists for a team-high 20 this season, hit the crossbar with his shot before Pominville scored. Ryan Kesler's last-chance attempt for the Canucks sailed wide right.

Josh Harding stopped shots by Mike Santorelli and Chris Higgins in the shootout and made 29 saves to win for the fifth time in his last six starts. The Wild improved to 14-3-2 at Xcel Energy Center, where Luongo fell to 3-9-3 in his career.
