St. Paul, MN (WDAY TV) - For Wild fans, the late night was worth it last night as Minnesota rallied to beat the Kings in a shootout.

Nino Niedereiter and Darcy Kemper were the heroes for the Wild, Kemper found out just before the game he was starting in goal, he came up with 39 saves, not including some huge wins in the shootout to get Minnesota a third straight win.

Darcy Kuemper/39 Saves Last Night: “Obviously it was a chance to redeem myself and my game is at a place where I want it to be right now. I have been working on it in Iowa and been playing good down there so just try not to change anything when I came up here and it worked out pretty good tonight.”

Mike Yeo/Wild Head Coach: “Real, real happy for Darcy first of all, kind of got thrown into a game where he wasn't quite expecting to play until this morning and he responded extremely well. Right from the start he just looked very confident. When we had a couple of these games earlier in the year we threw him in and he hadn't had a lot of playing time and it was kind of a tough situation for him and that was a lot of the reasoning for us to get him back down and make sure he got playing time.”
