San Jose got off to a quick start, scoring three-and-a-half minutes into the game. Tomas Hertl, ever dangerous, gave the Sharks hope off of a solo effort that started in his own zone. For a team floundering near the bottom of the Honda West Division (TM), hope can become a weapon.
Minnesota fourth-liner Nick Bonino stayed hot with a goal and an assist in the Wild's 3-2 win Friday night over the San Jose Sharks in Saint Paul, Minn. Bonino and linemates Zach Parise (goal) and Nico Sturm finished plus-5 as the Wild boosted their record to 20-7-3 since Feb. 18. Mats Zuccarello scored for the third time in two games, and Cam Talbot (14-6-3) allowed two goals on 22 shots to go to 10-2-2 in his last 14 starts since March 12.
