WILD 3, SHARKS 2
Zach Parise and Ryan Suter each had a goal and assist and Minnesota extended its mastery on the road, beating San Jose.
Alex Galchenyuk also scored for Minnesota, which won its sixth consecutive road game and moved ahead of Vancouver for the second wild-card spot in the Western Conference.
The Sharks, who had their three-game winning streak snapped, got goals from Stefan Noesen and Joe Thornton.
Alex Stalock, a former Shark, made 40 saves in the net for the Wild on a night Minnesota was outshot 42-27.
The game was played in front of the Sharksâ€™ smallest home crowd of the season (14,517), on the same day that Santa Clara County officials recommended the team cancel the game due to growing concerns over the coronavirus.
