SAINT PAUL, Minn. — Minnesota Wild left winger Jason Zucker celebrated his 22nd birthday by setting a team record. Zucker scored just eight seconds into the third period — the fastest home goal to start a period in team history — as Minnesota cruised to a 4-1 win over the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday.
