Wild beats Burns, Sharks with two late goals

The Minnesota Wild came back twice on Sunday to beat the Sharks, 4-3 at the X. San Jose jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first three-and-a-half minutes of the game, and went up 3-2 in the third period on former Wild star Brent Burns’ 10th goal of the season. But Matt Cullen tied the score at three, and less than 80 seconds later Jed Ortmeyer scored the game-winner -- his first goal of the season.

Matt Cullen and Jed Ortmeyer scored goals in the third period and the Minnesota Wild came-from-behind to beat San Jose, 4-3 at the Xcel Energy Center on Sunday night.

The Wild went down 2-0 in the first 3:21 of the game but battled back to tie the game 2-2 behind goals from Cal Clutterbuck and Nick Schultz.

San Jose went up 3-2 on a power play goal by former Wild defenseman Brent Burns, his tenth goal of the season. Minnesota then tied the game at three when Matt Cullen tipped in a Marco Scandella shot.

Just over a minute later Ortmeyer scored the game-winner.
