Wild Vs. Sharks: Minnesota Earns Critical 4-3 Victory

The Minnesota wild are now five points out of the final playoff spot in the Western Conference after getting an important 4-3 win at home on Sunday over the visiting San Jose Sharks. Jed Ortmeyer scored his first goal of the NHL season with just over four minutes to go, and that was enough for Minnesota to hold on for the win. He was assisted on the goal by Jared Spurgeon.
