Preview: After winning two out of three games in Southern California, the Wild heads north to take on the Sharks. These teams have played twice before this season, with each side winning once.

Players to watch: RW Kirill Kaprizov is coming off his second multi-point game of the season. RW Mats Zuccarello scored his first goal of the season Saturday and added an assist. … Sharks C Logan Couture has three goals in his past three games. LW Evander Kane chipped in a goal and assist in San Jose's 5-4 victory at St. Louis on Saturday.
Numbers: The Wild's five goals Saturday at Anaheim were a season high. In all eight of the team's wins this season, the Wild has scored at least three goals. … Sharks C Patrick Marleau is sitting on 563 career goals and needs one to tie Mats Sundin and Joe Nieuwendyk for 23rd all-time.
