DETROIT -- Devin Setoguchi scored two goals, Niklas Backstrom made 36 saves, and the Minnesota Wild beat the Detroit Red Wings 4-2 at Joe Louis Arena on Wednesday night.
Kyle Brodziak and Mikko Koivu also scored for Minnesota, which won its fourth straight. Pierre-Marc Bouchard had two assists.
Gustav Nyquist and Drew Miller scored for Detroit (14-11-5). Jimmy Howard stopped 15 shots.
Minnesota (17-10-2) led 1-0 after the first period despite being outshot 17-5.
Setoguchi opened the scoring 2:04 when he swept in a shot from the bottom of the right circle. It was Setoguchi's 10th goal of the season.
Brodziak's power-play goal 3:51 into the second period made it 2-0. Brodziak put in a one-timer shot from the edge of the crease, his fifth goal, off a pass from Jared Spurgeon.
Nyquist put Detroit on the scoreboard 9:09 into the middle period. He capitalized on Spurgeon's turnover at the Red Wings' blue line for his first goal of the season, on a breakaway.
Koivu restored the Wild's two-goal lead with 9:11 left in the second on spin-a-round shot from the high slot, which went in off Howard's glove. It was Koivu's seventh goal.
Setoguchi's second goal of the game came on the power play with 2:45 left in the second period when he put in a rebound.
Miller got his third goal in the final minute on a power play.
An apparent goal by Detroit's Jordin Tootoo 7:30 into the first period was waved off because of a high-stick call. However, replays showed the puck went off the glove of the Wild's Dany Heatley instead of the Miller's stick.
