Wild extends winning streak to 5 with win over San Jose


The Wild made it five wins in a row Saturday with a 2-0 win over the San Jose Sharks at Xcel Energy Center, the Pioneer Press reports.

After a scoreless first period, Zach Parise scored a goal 12:10 into the second period to give the Wild a 1-0 lead and his 12th goal of the season.

Jared Spurgeon added a power-play goal early in the third period -- his fourth of the season -- for a 2-0 Wild lead and eventual win.

The win kept the Wild perched atop the Northwest Division with a six point lead over the Sharks.
