Vlasic's OT goal gives Sharks 4-3 win over Wild

ST. PAUL, Minn. – Marc-Edouard Vlasic scored his second winning goal in two nights 3:09 into overtime, and the Sharks completed a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night.

Vlasic, who scored the winner with 4.5 seconds left in regulation on Monday night at Winnipeg, beat goalie Darcy Kuemper with a wrist shot from just outside the left circle.

Joe Pavelski and Tommy Wingels scored 1:14 apart to give San Jose a 3-2 lead at 7:35 of the third period.

Minnesota's Jason Zucker tipped in a pass from Charlie Coyle at 12:12 for his second goal of the game, tying it 3-3 and temporarily helping the Wild regain momentum.

Wild forward Zach Parise missed the game to be with his ailing father — former player J.P. Parise — who has lung cancer.

Zucker and Jared Spurgeon scored in the first period to give Minnesota a 2-0 lead. Zucker's goal came after goalie Alex Stalock had the puck knocked away by Jason Pominville as he handled it near the side of the net.

San Jose's Melker Karlsson scored for the third straight game midway through the second to get the Sharks on the board.

The Wild, who are fading in the Western Conference, were trying to rebound after a 7-1 loss at Dallas on Saturday.

San Jose brought enough energy to rally on Tuesday despite playing its third game in four nights. The Sharks snapped a seven-game, road-losing streak to Minnesota.

NOTES: Sharks C Tomas Hertl played despite getting 16 to 18 stitches to close a cut on his upper lip after being hit by a puck while on the bench Monday at Winnipeg. . Wild D Marco Scandella missed the third period after he got hit in the head with a puck in the second. … Minnesota recalled D Justin Falk from AHL Iowa. . Linesman Ryan Galloway was struck by a puck in the side of the head and was bleeding when he left the game early in the third period. He returned with about 3 minutes left.
