The Minnesota Wild have won just three of their last 10; however, a visit from the San Jose Sharks could be just what they need.
The Wild have won seven straight home meetings with the Sharks and have not lost at home to San Jose since April 2010.
Sharks center Joe Thornton will miss his third straight game with an upper body injury.
San Jose forward Joe Pavelski assisted on two goals against the Jets and has at least a point in three straight games and in six of his past seven overall.
Tomas Hertl is expected to be in the lineup a day after taking a puck to the face in Winnipeg.
The Sharks enter tonight’s game having won two of three.
You can watch the game and the pregame show via the NBC Sports’ Live Extra Stream.
