ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -Brent Burns scored at 1:38 of overtime to give the Minnesota Wild a 3-2 victory over the San Jose Sharks 3-2 on Wednesday night.

Burns took a cross-ice pass from Mikko Koivu and beat Evgeni Nabokov over the left shoulder. Owen Nolan also scored in his return to the Minnesota lineup, and Krystofer Kolanos added a goal.

San Jose's Milan Michalek tied it with 25.2 seconds left in regulation with Nabokov off for an extra attacker. Devin Setoguchi also scored for the Sharks.

San Jose, tied with Boston for the NHL lead, lost for just the second time in regulation in 21 games - and the first time in nine games against Minnesota. It was the Wild's first win in 10 games against a Western Conference opponent.

UNIONDALE, N.Y. (AP) - Mike Comrie scored twice in New York's three-goal second period, and Sean Bergenheim and Mark Streit added goals.

Joey MacDonald, subbing for a third straight game for oft-injured regular Rick DiPietro, made 27 saves for his 11th win of the season - and the Islanders' first over Florida since Dec. 9, 2006. Brett McLean and Nathan Horton scored for Florida.
