     ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Matt Cullen scored his first goal of the season on his 41st birthday and added an assist during Minnesota's three-goal first period, giving the sputtering Wild a welcome spark on the way to a 6-3 victory Thursday night over the Montreal Canadiens.
 
     Nino  Niederreiter and Tyler Ennis also scored to send struggling Canadiens goalie Carey Price into the first intermission with a 3-0 deficit. Ryan Suter chipped in a second-period goal , and Jared Spurgeon scored on a power play for more insurance in the first minute of the third.
 
     Mikko Koivu and Mikael Granlund each had two assists and Marcus Foligno added an empty-net goal for the Wild, who have won six straight games against the Canadiens while outscoring them 25-9.
 
     Price, who stopped 21 shots by the Wild, gave up a staggering seven goals in the team's last trip to Minnesota on Jan. 12 .
 
     Brendan Gallagher scored twice and Andrew Shaw had one of two third-period goals for the Canadiens, who totaled 13 goals over their previous two games but still entered the night with the fourth-fewest goals per game (2.5) in the NHL.
 
     Defense has been a problem for the Canadiens, too, with the third-most goals allowed per game (3.75) in the league coming into this game. That's despite the presence of Price, the five-time All-Star who was the Hart Trophy winner just three seasons ago as the MVP of the NHL.
 
     Price has allowed four goals or more in four of his last five starts.
 
     Devan Dubnyk made 27 saves for the Wild, winning his third straight start.
 
     Cullen, the second-oldest player in the league behind Jaromir Jagr of the Calgary Flames, snagged a long rebound off Price's pads and sent it into the net as Price was falling to his right. That put the Wild on the board just 4:46 into the game.
 
     Matt Dumba, who had two assist for the Wild, set up Niederreiter's tip 10 seconds after Cullen scored with a slap shot off a clearing attempt by Price went astray. Price jammed the butt of his stick into his glove several times in frustration after falling behind 2-0. Cullen then led a slick 2-on-1 to beat defenseman Jeff Petry and tee up Ennis for the tap-in.
 
     Dumba responded deftly to a rough game on Tuesday, when his careless drop pass was intercepted by Winnipeg's Nikolaj Ehlers for an easy goal in a 2-1 victory by the Jets. Dumba was benched by coach Bruce Boudreau after the turnover and called out by the boss afterward.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minnesota Twins slugger Miguel Sano will undergo surgery for a persistent leg injury that knocked him out for six weeks during the season. Sano's injury was initially diagnosed as a stress reaction, and he was sidelined during the team's drive to a wild-card playoff spot. The 24-year-old Sano came back for the final regular-season series but wasn't put on the team's postseason roster.
 
     The team announced Thursday that Sano and the team had decided surgery was the best course, and he was scheduled to undergo a procedure on Nov. 13 in New York. Sano hit .264 with 28 home runs in 114 games.

     MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The World Series is over. Bring on spring training.
 
     The Minnesota Twins on Thursday announced the home schedule for their 2018 spring training. Twins pitchers and catchers are scheduled to begin their workouts on Feb. 14. The team's first full-squad workout is set for Feb. 19.
 
     The Twins' spring schedule features 33 games - 17 home games and 16 on the road - starting with a home opener exhibition against the University of Minnesota at CenturyLink Sports Complex in Fort Myers, Florida, on Feb. 22.
 
     Highlighting the Twins' 16 Grapefruit League games will be four games against the AL East champion Boston Red Sox, an AL wild-card rematch with the New York Yankees on March 22 and a visit from the new World Champion Houston Astros on March 23.

      EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Matt Forte ran for two touchdowns four days after complaining the Jets didn't run the ball enough, and an overwhelming defense sacked Tyrod Taylor seven times Thursday night in New York's 34-21 demolition of the Buffalo Bills.
 
     Buffalo (5-3) came in having scored 64 points in its last two wins, but self-destructed with turnovers and miscues. New York (4-5), which snapped a three-game slide in which it held leads in each defeat, looked more like the challenger to New England in the AFC East.
 
     Forte scored on runs of 10 and 5 yards and had 14 carries for 77 yards. Augmenting that was Bilal Powell with a 51-yard burst and 74 yards on nine carries. Quarterback Josh McCown got in on the fun with a 10-yard scramble to open the scoring and New York rushed for 194 yards overall.
 
     Jordan Jenkins had two of the Jets' sacks as they never allowed Buffalo's offense to get on track.
 
     In other NFL news:
 
     - Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck will be placed on injured reserve. Luck was "shut down" three weeks ago after complaining of soreness in his surgically repaired throwing shoulder.
 
     - The San Francisco 49ers are placing leading receiver Pierre Garcon on injured reserve for the remainder of the season with a neck injury. The team says Garcon has a non-displaced fracture of the C5 pedicle. Garcon led the team with 40 catches for 500 yards before getting hurt last weekend in Philadelphia.
 
     - Two people familiar with the situation tell The Associated Press that Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson sustained a season-ending knee injury in practice on Thursday. The people, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, say the rookie suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in one of his knees and will go on the injured reserve.
 
     - Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali returned to practice for the first time since the end of last season, though it's unclear when he will be activated from the physically unable to perform list. Hali's return Thursday begins a three-week window in which the Chiefs must decide whether to activate Hali or shut him down for the season.

     SAN ANTONIO (AP) - Klay Thompson scored 27 points, Kevin Durant had 24 and the Golden State Warriors overcame a lethargic first half to beat the injury-riddled San Antonio Spurs 112-92 on Thursday night.
 
     Steph Curry added 21 points for Golden State in its first meeting against the Spurs since sweeping the Western Conference finals en route to the NBA title.
 
     The Spurs played without Kawhi Leonard and Tony Parker, as they did in the conference finals. Unlike those blowout victories, Golden State struggled to close out San Antonio.
 
     Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge had 24 points and 10 rebounds, continuing his resurgent season. Kyle Anderson added 16 points in place of Leonard, whose return from an injured right quadriceps is still undetermined.
 
     In other NBA action:
 
     - Damian Lillard made a 3-pointer with 0.7 seconds left and the Portland Trail Blazers extended their winning streak over the Los Angeles Lakers to 13 games with a 113-110 victory. Lillard finished with 32 points, and Portland snapped a two-game skid. Jusuf Nurkic added 28 points for Portland. Brook Lopez had 27 points and rookie Kyle Kuzma added a season-high 22 for the Lakers, who were short-handed after Larry Nance Jr. injured his left hand in the second half.
 
     News from around the NBA:
 
     - Gordon Hayward is working his way back from a horrific leg injury. But the Boston Celtics forward has no timetable for his return.  Hayward broke his left leg in the season opener, less than three weeks ago.
 
     - Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson could be out for a month because of a strained left calf. He was injured in the second quarter of Wednesday night's loss to Indiana and left Quicken Loans Arena on crutches. The team said he had an MRI on Thursday and is projected to return in three to four weeks.
 
     - The NBA says it will hold its draft lottery in Chicago next spring. The league announced Thursday the event will be held outside of New York or New Jersey for the first time on May 15. It will be followed by the draft combine May 16-20 in Chicago, where it has been conducted for years.

     WASHINGTON (AP) - Lars Eller scored two goals, including the winner, and had an assist to help the Washington Capitals beat the New York Islanders 4-3 on Thursday night.
 
     Eller was arguably the best player on the ice, drawing two penalties and committing one as part of an eventful outing. The Danish center's play helped Washington escape despite being outshot 38-19 and 16-2 in the third period.
 
     Braden Holtby made 35 saves, including many in the third while the Islanders were pouring it on. Taylor Chorney and Alex Chiasson each scored his first goal of the season for the Capitals.

     Other finals from around the league:
