The Anaheim Ducks secured a place in the Stanley Cup play-offs for the sixth straight season with a 3-1 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night.
Ondrej Kase scored the go-ahead goal on a rebound with 3:56 to play, and Andrew Cogliano made sure of matters with an empty-net goal 2:13 from time.
Matt Dumba had given the Wild an early lead with a power-play goal only for Nick Ritchie to equalise at 12:55 in the opening period.
The St Louis Blues' play-off hopes, meanwhile, were dented as they surrendered a two-goal lead to go down 4-3 to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Duncan Keith netted a power-play goal with 8.5 seconds left to complete the visitors' comeback and deny the hosts the chance to move into the second Western Conference wild-card berth.
The Blues had led 3-1 early in the second period thanks to goals from Robert Bortuzzo, Brayden Schenn and Vladimir Tarasenko.
But Blake Hillman pulled one back midway through the second and Alex DeBrincat equalised in the third period before Keith's dramatic winner, which condemned St Louis to a fourth straight loss.
Also on Wednesday, Max McCormick, Matt Duchene, Ryan Dzingel and Alexander Burrows were on target as the Ottawa Senators defeated Buffalo 4-2, guaranteeing the Sabres will finish last in the NHL standings.
