But the Wild had only three shots in the opening period, with Dallas outworking the home team on offense. Minnesota failed to get a shot off during an extended power play late in the period when Shawn Horcoff received a double minor for high-sticking.

But Kuemper's solid play in net offset Dallas' aggressive offensive play.

"We were under siege a lot of the night but there was opportunities where he came out and made a play and relieved some of that pressure," Yeo said of Kuemper. "When you see that kind of confidence, for sure your team feeds off that."

Dallas tied it at 11:57 of the second on Garbutt's 10th goal of the season. Garbutt picked up a rebound off Vernon Fiddler's shot in front of the net and knocked it in past Kuemper.

Yeo then called for a timeout to rally his team, and his players responded. Minnesota reclaimed the lead when Suter wristed a shot from the left circle through a crowd and past Lehtonen at 14:09.

Chiasson's power-play goal for Dallas tied it with just over 10 minutes to play.

The game capped the eighth annual Hockey Day Minnesota that included three high school hockey games on an outdoor rink in the Minneapolis suburb of Elk River, and the University of Minnesota men's team against Ohio State.
