The San Jose Sharks built on one of their best performances of the season Thursday in Vancouver with a 4-3 win over the surging Minnesota Wild Saturday night at HP Pavilion. Devin Setoguchi scored two goals to snap a 9-game point drought, Logan Couture added his team leading 22nd goal of the season, and Benn Ferriero added his 5th of the year as the Sharks played with a lead for most of the night. Minnesota, forced out of its defense-first comfort zone, scored twice with 5-on-3 and 5-on-4 power play goals by captain Mikko Koivu. Offensive defenseman Brent Burns added his 14th of the season, but goaltender Antti Niemi continued his strong new year with 23 saves on 26 shots for his fourth straight win.

More notes will be posted soon. A photo gallery from the game is available here.
