TORONTO -- Eric Staal never has trouble finding motivation when hes up against the Toronto Maple Leafs.Staal scored yet another goal against Toronto, lifting the Minnesota Wild to a 3-2 victory on Wednesday night.Staal has 47 points in 43 career games against Toronto, and three of his six goals this season have come against the Leafs.It was a team I grew up watching, the 32-year-old center said. So I always have a little spot in my heart for the Leafs because of growing up with Hockey Night in Canada there in Thunder Bay and people there are Leafs fans, thats who they watch and I was no different as a kid. Jason Zucker and Chris Stewart also scored for the Wild, who wrapped a five-game trip 2-1-2.Ben Smith and Tyler Bozak had goals for the Maple Leafs, who dropped to 8-4-0 at Air Canada Centre.Toronto entered the third period down a goal and pushed hard but couldnt get the equalizer because of goalie Devan Dubnyk, who stopped all 17 shots in the final 20 minutes and 35 in total.Dubnyk leads the NHL in goals-against average (1.65), save percentage (.946) and shutouts (four).He seems to go down in that butterfly and post to post is covered, he does a great job fighting traffic and tonight he made a few timely saves, Torontos Nazem Kadri said.Frederik Andersen stopped 17 shots for Toronto.Minnesota opened the scoring 8:42 into the first period after forcing a turnover from Kadri behind his own net. Mikko Koivu stripped Kadri and made a short pass to Mikael Granlund, who then put the puck out front to Zucker. He beat Andersen blocker side for a 1-0 lead.Andersen was later forced to make a fine pad save on Granlund from the slot, but then Stewart made it 2-0 when he was sprung in alone on a breakaway off a long pass from Jared Spurgeon.It was Stewarts first goal at Air Canada Centre -- he grew up in Toronto and had family in the crowd watching.Ive been thinking about that one my whole life, Stewart said. Its good to get it off the bucket list.Smith got one back for Toronto with 3:10 to go in the period. Kadri crossed Minnesotas blue line and put a shot on net that Dubnyk kicked out to the slot, where Smith was waiting to push it in for a 2-1 game.Staal regained the two-goal lead for the Wild just 1:15 into the second period, putting a backhand shot past Andersen after taking a pass from behind the net from Charlie Coyle.It took Toronto over five minutes to register its first shot on net in the second.Bozak scored with an individual effort to make it 3-2 at 10:54. Bozak stole the puck in Minnesotas end, skated by Matt Dumba and beat Dubnyk with a backhand up top.Linesman Steve Miller was hit in the left knee by a slap shot from Roman Polak in the opening minute of the third period and instantly dropped to the ice in pain. He skated off with assistance and didnt return, leaving the game to be finished with three officials instead of four.Toronto had one final opportunity to even the score late when Ryan Suter took a minor penalty, but Minnesota killed it off.Game notes Dubnyk was making the 300th career start. He entered with the best save percentage in the league at .946. ... Connor Carrick replaced Martin Marincin on Torontos blue line. ... Antoine Bibeau backed up Andersen while Karri Ramo made his first start for the AHL Marlies against Utica. He made 33 saves in a 3-2 loss.UP NEXTWild: Return home to host the Oilers on Friday night.Maple Leafs: Play at Boston on Saturday night. Iiro Pakarinen Jersey .

Richard pitched two scoreless innings out of the bullpen and Jesus Guzman singled home the winning run with two outs in the 17th to give the San Diego Padres a 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays early Saturday. "I was hoping I would get a win today. I was assuming it was going to be later in the day," said Richard, who had been scheduled to start Saturday night against the Blue Jays. "Thats the crazy thing about baseball. You never really know what youre going to get. You come to the park thinking youve got a plan and it gets turned upside down. It was fun, though. Thats part of the fun of the game is being in situations where something different happens." Richard (1-5) came on to start the 16th. He gave up one hit and struck out two in his first relief outing since May 2009 with the Chicago White Sox. The left-hander came in 0-5 with an 8.35 ERA in seven starts and recently spent time on the disabled list with an intestinal virus. Padres manager Bud Black told Richard around the 13th inning that hed probably pitch. "We talked about it, whether to use a position player or go to one of our starters, and we felt that was the thing to do," Black said. "We wanted to win the game. We played to win the game. We took Claytons start tomorrow out of the equation and we decided to use him tonight and go for the W. I think thats the way you have to do it." The Padres will call up lefty Robbie Erlin from Triple-A Tucson to start Saturday night. It was San Diegos longest game since the Padres lost to Arizona in 18 innings on June 7, 2009, when backup shortstop Josh Wilson served up a three-run homer to Mark Reynolds. Rookie Jedd Gyorkos third hit of the night, a one-out single, caromed off third base into shallow left. Gyorko was sacrificed to second by Richard and scored when Guzman singled up the middle off Todd Redmond (0-1). The winning hit came three innings after the 14th-inning stretch. The game lasted 4 hours, 58 minutes. The Blue Jays and Padres werent alone playing deep into the night, though. After nearly five hours of rain delays, the Tampa Bay-Cleveland game ended about 20 minutes before this one did -- one night after the Royals beat the Cardinals in a rain-delayed game that finished at 3:14 a.m. CDT. It was the longest game for the Blue Jays since they played the longest game in franchise history, 18 innings against the Angels on July 28, 2005. "Its tough to watch because we couldnt get anything to fall and then couldnt get timely hitting at the end," Toronto starter Chad Jenkins said. Each team used seven relievers, and each bullpen threw 11 2-3 innings. San Diegos allowed five hits, no walks and struck out 10. Torontos allowed one run, six hits, walked three and also struck out 10. "Its a tough loss for us," Blue Jays reliever Brett Cecil said. "It wwould be nice to have something to show for it.dddddddddddd. Unfortunately, we dont. But it doesnt take anything away from our bullpen, Redmond in particular. He got out of a lot of jams." Four Padres relievers retired 17 Blue Jays batters in a row before Adam Lind singled leading off the 13th, his third hit. Torontos Colby Rasmus had a two-run homer among his season-high four hits and robbed Yonder Alonso of a solo shot. The Blue Jays took a 3-0 lead after four innings on two home runs off Jason Marquis. Rasmus hit a two-run drive to straightaway centre with one out in the second. His ninth homer came after J.P. Arencibia walked. In the bottom of the inning, Rasmus made a leaping catch to rob Alonso of a homer. Alonso doffed his batting helmet toward Rasmus. Edwin Encarnacion lined Marquis first pitch of the fourth into the balcony on the second level of the Western Metal Supply Co. brick warehouse in the left-field corner, his 15th. The Padres tied it at 3 in the fifth. Gyorko hit a two-run double to right-centre with one out, went to third on the throw home and scored on Arencibias errant throw to third. Carlos Quentin was hit by a pitch on the back of his left hand leading off the inning and Alonso followed with a single. Toronto failed to take advantage of two bases-loaded situations. Marquis got two straight outs after allowing Encarnacions homer but then loaded the bases on two singles and a walk before striking out Jenkins. Marquis loaded the bases with one out in the sixth by allowing two singles and a walk before making way for Tyson Ross. Melky Cabrera then grounded into a 3-2-3 double play. Marquis, making his 300th career start, got his second straight no-decision after a five-start winning streak. He allowed three runs and seven hits in 5 1-3 innings, struck out six and walked four. Jenkins went five innings for the third straight start, allowing three runs, two earned, on three hits. NOTES: Alonso, San Diegos first baseman, was hit on the right hand by a pitch from Aaron Loup in the seventh. Alonso played defence in the eighth but was replaced in the ninth. The Padres said X-rays were negative and Alonso has a bruised hand. ... Jenkins has gone five innings in five of his six career starts. ... Encarnacion is 10 for 20 with three homers and three walks against Marquis. ... This is the third time the Blue Jays have played a series at Petco Park. They won series in 2004 and 2010 by 2-1 margins. ... Jenkins was pitching on regular rest after waiting 14 days between his first and second starts. He missed the first month with shoulder inflammation. ... Mark Buehrle (2-3, 5.51 ERA) is scheduled to start Saturday night for Toronto. ... Sundays series finale will be played at 7:10 p.m. due to the annual Rock n Roll Marathon. The race will finish in a parking lot outside Petco Park and a post-race concert featuring the Psychedelic Furs will be held in the ballpark, with the stage set up near the first-base line.
