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 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.

DALLAS (AP) - Loui Eriksson scored Dallas' first short-handed goal of the season and added an empty-netter with 40 seconds left.

Mark Parrish had a power-play goal, Landon Wilson also scored, and Marty Turco made 25 saves for the Stars, 5-1-1 in their last seven.

David Clarkson had a power-play goal, and Mike Mottau also scored for New Jersey.

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - Rookie Steve Mason became the first Columbus goalie to post shutouts in three consecutive games, and Craig MacDonald scored in his Blue Jackets debut.

Mason stopped 27 shots, giving him 71 saves in the three victories against the Ducks, Philadelphia and Los Angeles, and extending his shutout streak to a franchise-record 182 minutes, 8 seconds.

The 6-foot-4 phenom leads the NHL with a 1.69 goals-against average, and is tied with injured Vancouver star Roberto Luongo with a league-high five shutouts. It was Mason's 19th career start and first against the Ducks.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Sergei Samsonov had two goals and an assist, Joe Corvo also scored for Carolina, and Cam Ward made 20 saves.

Atlanta's Ilya Kovalchuk scored to end a career-worst nine-game goal drought.

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Peter Mueller scored twice in a 2:05 span in the second period, and Olli Jokinen also scored for Phoenix.

CALGARY (AP) - Jarome Iginla and Michael Cammalleri each scored twice and set up three others to lead Calgary over Edmonton.

Adrian Aucoin and Dustin Boyd also scored for the Flames (22-11-4), who have won four in a row and have earned points in nine straight games.

Craig Conroy and Daymond Langkow each chipped in with two assists, while Miikka Kiprusoff made 28 saves to record his league-leading 22nd win of the season.
