WINNIPEG - The Minnesota Wild overcame a loaded Winnipeg lineup to beat the Jets 4-1 without their stars in pre-season action Thursday.

The Wild (2-1-0) didn't dress top point getters such as Zach Parise, Mikko Koivu and Ryan Suter, while the Jets (1-2-1) had plenty of regulars on the ice.

Mathew Dumba, Charlie Coyle and Kris Foucault scored for the Wild. Steven Kampfer finished things off with a goal into an empty net.

Bryan Little had Winnipeg's only goal.

It was a preview of what the Jets can expect in their new Central Division, which includes Minnesota, Chicago, St. Louis, Nashville and Dallas.

The tone was set early when Dumba scored on a loose puck that floated in and out of a scramble in front of the Winnipeg net past a sprawled Al Montoya.
