ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Marian Gaborik scored twice, including the winning goal 5:28 into the third period, and the Minnesota Wild beat the Detroit Red Wings 3-2 Tuesday in the pre-season opener for both teams.

With a two-man advantage, Gaborik tried to centre the puck from the bottom of the right circle, but the puck deflected off a defender's skate past goaltender Stefan Liv.

Playing the first of nine pre-season games, Detroit was without many of its big-name players, including Pavel Datsyuk, Nicklas Lidstrom, Jason Williams and Henrik Zetterberg. With most of its regular-season roster set, Minnesota played its top players in the first of its six exhibition contests.
