     CHICAGO (AP) - Chris Stewart broke a tie midway through the third period with the first of his two goals and the Minnesota Wild beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-2 on Thursday night for their first victory of the season.
 
     Jason Zucker had a goal and an assist, and Devan Dubnyk made 36 saves to help the Wild (1-1-1) hand Chicago (3-1-1) its first regulation loss.
 
     Stewart tapped Zucker's feed past Corey Crawford from the doorstep at 9:28 of the third to give Minnesota a 2-1 lead.
 
     Stewart and Zucker broke in 2-on-1 against Duncan Keith after fellow defenseman Brent Seabrook fell down on the play. The goal withstood a video review after the Blackhawks challenged Zucker was offside.
 
     Zucker added a power-play goal with 7:31 to go on the delay-of-game penalty that resulted from the failed Chicago challenge. He banged the puck in from behind the net off Crawford's skate.
 
     Stewart scored into an empty net with 4:04 remaining to make it 4-1. Mikko Koivu added another empty-netter with 2:01 left.
 
     Minnesota's Eric Staal opened the scoring with 34.5 seconds left in the second. Chicago's Ryan Hartman connected midway through the third period to tie it at 1.
 
     Jonathan Toews' goal in the final minute completed the scoring.
 
     Crawford stopped 29 shots. Chicago entered having outscored its opponents 21-7 in four games.
 
     Neither team had many chances in the scoreless first period as the Blackhawks failed to connect in the opening frame for the first time in five games. Chicago has outscored opponents 11-1 in the first.
 
     Crawford made point-blank saves on Zucker and Charlie Coyle less than a minute apart early in the second. The Blackhawks dominated late in the period, but misfired on prime chances or were stopped by Dubnyk.
 
     Staal scored with 34.5 seconds left in the second to make it 1-0 as Minnesota capitalized on a turnover and coverage mistake by 21-year-old Chicago defenseman Gustav Forsling.
 
     Forsling lost the puck just to Coyle just inside the Chicago blue line, then was caught flat-footed as Staal broke in alone down the left side of the slot.  After taking Coyle's cross-ice feed, Staal beat Crawford on the short side.
 
     Hartman tied it 1 at 8:21 of the third, when he tucked in a rebound of Patrick Kane's shot from the left point.  With Tanner Kero screening, Dubnyk stopped Kane's shot, but Hartman was open on the right side of the crease and slid the puck past Dubnyk's left pad.
 
     Minnesota's Zach Parise sat out with an undisclosed injury and has yet to play this season, but he resumed practicing this week.

     GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Injured Green Bay Packers running back Ty Montgomery has a chance to play Sunday at Minnesota. Montgomery was listed as full participant for a second straight day Thursday while wearing a flak jacket to protect broken ribs sustained against Chicago on Sept. 28. But the defense was without two starters in the secondary, with safety Morgan Burnett and cornerback Kevin King each missing a second day of practice.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota has a fast defense. Clever and tough. It was crafted by head coach Mike Zimmer when he arrived in 2014. The group has given the Vikings as good a chance to beat rival Green Bay as they've had since Aaron Rodgers became the starting quarterback for the Packers in 2008. Rodgers says he considers Zimmer an "innovator" in the game. That doesn't mean Rodgers is fun for Zimmer to prepare for. Not even in his 24th season in the NFL.

     CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - The Philadelphia Eagles currently own the NFC's best record at 5-1 just one season after missing the playoffs. Carson Wentz threw for 222 yards and three touchdowns as the Eagles earned a 28-23 win at Carolina. Philadelphia rallied from a 10-3, first-half deficit and dropped the Panthers to 4-2.
 
     Panthers quarterback Cam Newton ran for a touchdown but threw three interceptions, two of which were converted into 18 points by the Eagles. Wentz hit Zach Ertz for TDs following Newton interceptions, and LaGarrette Blount added a two-point conversion that put the Eagles up 18-10 in the third quarter.
 
     Wentz added a 24-yard scoring pass to Nelson Agholor in the fourth quarter.
 
     All of the Eagles' touchdowns came after Carolina middle linebacker Luke Kuechly left the game late in the second quarter. Kuechly was placed into the concussion protocol after his body crumpled following a collision with Eagles pulling guard Brandon Brooks.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - The Chicago Cubs are back in the National League Championship Series for a team-record third consecutive year. All it took was a comeback from an early 4-1 deficit, a crazy fifth-inning rally, an eighth-inning pickoff and a seven-out save by their closer.
 
     Addison Russell drove in four runs and the Cubs took Game 5 of their NL Division Series by outscoring the Nationals, 9-8 in Washington.
 
     The Nats took a three-run lead in the second inning as Daniel Murphy tied the game with a leadoff homer before Michael A. Taylor launched a three-run blast. Russell started the comeback with a simple RBI grounder in the third and provided a go-ahead, two-run double while the Cubs scored four times off loser Max Scherzer in the fifth.
 
     Javier Baez struck out swinging following Russell's double, but the ball got away from Matt Wieters before the catcher threw wildly to first, allowing Addison to score. Tommy LaStella reached first on catcher's interference to load the bases, one batter before Jon Jay was hit by a pitch to force in another run.
 
     Russell added an RBI double in the sixth to make it 8-4, but the Nationals chipped away. They scored once in the eighth to get within 9-8 and had the potential tying run on second before catcher Willson Contreras picked off Jose Lobaton at first base to end the threat. The pickoff bailed out Wade Davis, who finished the series by striking out Jayson Werth and Bryce Harper.
 
     The Cubs now head to Los Angeles to take on the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLCS on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Nationals try to figure out how to win a playoff series after being bounced in the first round for the fourth time in four playoff appearances.

     UNDATED (AP) - The Minnesota Wild finally have their first win of the NHL season after knocking off one of their division rivals.
 
     Chris Stewart scored twice and Jason Zucker had a goal and an assist as the Wild downed the Blackhawks, 5-2 in Chicago. Stewart's first goal broke a 1-1 deadlock midway through the third period and put Minnesota ahead to stay. He and Mikko Koivu added empty-netters as the Wild handed the Hawks their first regulation loss in five games this season.
 
     Elsewhere in the NHL:
 
     - Slater Koekkek scored his first two NHL goals and Alex Killorn had four assists as the Lightning topped the Penguins, 5-4. Tampa Bay's Steven Stamkos scored his first goal since undergoing right knee surgery last November, a power-play tally that made it 3-1 early in the second period.
 
     - The Blues' season-opening four-game winning streak is over after Roberto Luongo handled 37 shots in the Panthers' 5-2 verdict over St. Louis. Vincent Trocheck provided the go-ahead tally and Ian McCoshen had his first NHL goal to help Luongo move into a tie for fourth on the all-time list with his 474th victory.
 
     - The Predators were 4-1 winners against Dallas as Samuel Girard scored his first NHL goal and added an assist. Filip Forsberg and P.K. Subban each had a goal and an assist to back Pekka Rinne, who stopped 30 shots.
 
     - Luke Glendening scored a short-handed goal with 3:24 left to snap a 2-2 tie in the Red Wings' 4-2 win over the winless Coyotes. Arizona also lost goaltender Anti Raanta to a lower-body injury suffered in the first period.
 
     - The Sabres fell to 0-2-1 under new coach Phil Housley despite Jason Pominville's two goals in a 3-2 loss at San Jose. Martin Jones made 23 saves and blanked Buffalo after Timo Maier broke a 2-2 tie with 5  1/2 minutes left in the second period of the Sharks' first win.
 
     - Patrik Laine and Tyler Myers scored 3:13 apart late in the second period to push the Jets past the Canucks, 4-2. Connor Hellebuyck made 31 saves and Bryan Little had two assists for Winnipeg.

     FRISCO, Texas (AP) - A federal appeals court has lifted an injunction that had blocked a six-game suspension for Dallas Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliott. The decision clears the way for the NFL's punishment over domestic violence allegations and likely leading to the running back's legal team seeking further relief.
 
     The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans voted 2-1 to grant the league's emergency request to set aside the injunction and ordered the district court in Texas to dismiss Elliott's case.
 
     A federal judge in Texas issued an injunction that blocked the suspension last month. That judge agreed with NFL players' union attorneys who argued that the investigation of the allegations in Ohio and subsequent appeal were unfair to Elliott.
 
     The NFL countered that it followed procedures under the league's labor deal and that the union improperly filed a lawsuit before the appeals process was complete.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - Suspended cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie met with Giants coach Ben McAdoo on Thursday and was told that his suspension is indefinite. The Giants suspended Rodger-Cromartie on Wednesday for leaving the team facility before practice, one day after being told he wouldn't play Sunday in Denver.
 
     - Andrew Luck says he's getting close to being ready to play, as he recovers from offseason surgery on his throwing shoulder. Before throwing at practice Thursday, the Colts quarterback told reporters he will continue being cautious as he gets close to the "finish line."
 
     - Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert will miss the rest of the season with a back injury that has put his career in jeopardy. The fifth-year veteran missed half of last season with ankle and back injuries. He had surgery on a disc in his back last December. He aggravated it in the second game this season, forcing him to consider another procedure. He's been inactive for the past three games.
 
     - The NFL and the Patriots, Raiders and Steelers will together contribute $200,000 to support disaster relief efforts following last month's earthquake in Mexico City. The money will go to Banorte's Fundaci√≥n Banorte, which is a local bank involved with relief efforts.
 
     - Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry is critical of fans who lobbied for quarterback Jay Cutler to be benched, saying they're an embarrassment to players. Cutler drew jeers while struggling through much of the Dolphins' 2017 home debut, before his fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Landry helped beat the Tennessee Titans 16-10.
 
     - The NFL is keeping an eye on the wildfires in Northern California that could cause Sunday's Raiders-Chargers game to be moved from Oakland. The NFL's vice president of football communications said the league continues to monitor air quality conditions in the Bay Area and is in close communication with both teams, as well as local authorities. Oakland is some 45 miles south of the fires and has been blanketed by smoke.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MIAMI (AP) - Miami Heat small forward Rodney McGruder will have surgery next week to repair a stress fracture in his leg. McGruder averaged 6.4 points in a team-high 78 games last season, including 65 starts. The injury will likely keep him sidelined at least three months, though the timetable for a return will be known until after surgery.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     MONTREAL (AP) - A person with direct knowledge of the move tells The Associated Press the Canadiens have placed veteran defenseman Mark Streit on waivers. The abrupt move comes four months after Montreal signed the 39-year-old Streit to a one-year, $700,000 contract. He appeared in two of Montreal's first four games after helping the Penguins win the Stanley Cup.
 
     Around the NHL:
 
     - New Jersey forward Michael McLeod has undergone arthroscopic surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. McLeod was injured during a preseason game and is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     UNDATED (AP) - Three people with knowledge of the investigation say the NCAA infractions committee panel handling North Carolina's multi-year academic case plans to release its ruling today. The people say the NCAA notified parties involved in the case Thursday morning. The oft-delayed case is focused on years of irregular courses in a department requiring a research paper or two. Those courses typically offered high grades and featured significant athlete enrollments.
 
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

     NEW YORK (AP) - A federal judge has refused to impose bail for an Adidas representative embroiled in a bribery scandal that's thrown college basketball into turmoil. Prosecutors urged Judge Katherine Parker to require that James Gatto post $100,000 bond to keep his freedom. The judge instead continued the no-bail conditions set at an earlier court appearance in Oregon.
 
     Lamont Evans, an assistant coach at Oklahoma State who was fired after being charged in the case, appeared on Thursday in the same courtroom. He was freed on $100,000 bond.
 
     Both men and eight other defendants were charged last month in an alleged scheme to bribe assistant coaches in exchange for steering top-flight NBA prospects to a particular agent or financial adviser.
