Plover native Joe Pavelski scores third goal in last two games in win over Wild
SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) -- Jason Demers and Patrick Marleau each had two goals, and Joe Pavelski scored the winner in the San Jose Sharks' 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night.
Evgeni Nabokov stopped 36 shots to help the Sharks win for the sixth time in seven games.
Owen Nolan and Cal Clutterbuck scored for the Wild, who had a three-game winning streak snapped. Josh Harding, who is playing with a sore hip because Niklas Backstrom was worse off with a sore back, made 29 saves.
The first six goals were scored on power plays.
Pavelski scored the go-ahead goal with just over 3 minutes left in the second period.
