SAN JOSE (CBS/AP) — Zach Parise broke a scoreless tie early in the second period and Darcy Kuemper earned his sixth career shutout to help the Minnesota Wild get a rare win in San Jose, 2-0 over the Sharks on Saturday night.
Mikko Koivu added an empty-net goal and Kuemper made 25 saves as the Wild once again played a tight defensive game. Minnesota has allowed just three regulation goals in the past six games but ended up losing a pair 2-1 in overtime to start this three-game road trip.
Martin Jones made 28 saves but couldn’t stop Parise’s rebound attempt as the Sharks dropped their sixth straight game. It’s their longest losing streak since losing seven in a row in February 2013.
