Victor Rask had a goal and two assists for the Wild, who improved to 3-1 on their five-game road trip. Kirill Kaprizov, Marcus Foligno, Ian Cole and Jonas Brodin also scored, and Kaapo Kahkonen made 31 saves.

  As NHL deals with COVID-19 issues, is on-ice transmission among players to blame? The number of outbreaks around the NHL has led some to question whether team-to-team, on-ice spread is occurring. Experts can't say definitively.Five days prior to opening night on Jan. 13, the league announced the defending Western Conference champion Dallas Stars would not open the season as scheduled because 17 players had contracted COVID-19 during training camp.

Eric Staal had two goals for the Wild , who won for the third time in four games. Jason Pominville assisted on Parise's 15th goal to open the scoring.

The Sharks fell flat in the opener of a season-long eight-game homestand. Next up is a challenging stretch when they play 11 of their next 13 against either St. Louis, Vegas or Colorado, the top three teams in the West Division.

Brent Burns and Logan Couture scored for San Jose, which was outscored 3-1 in the second period. Martin Jones made 16 saves on 20 shots before he was replaced by Devan Dubnyk.

“We’re a team that can’t rely on one line,” Sharks coach Bob Boughner said. “We have to have, every night, strong goaltending. We can’t give the other team outrageous chances. We have to be tight.”

The Sharks scored 45 seconds into the game on a nifty goal from Burns, who knocked the puck around a defender at the blue line and went right to left to flip a backhand past Kahkonen.

“Especially with Burns getting a goal (early), it can take the wind out of your sails,” Foligno said. “But we answered right back. We did a really good job.”

IN THEIR Defence

The Sharks played their fourth consecutive game without injured defencemen Erik Karlsson (groin) and Radim Simek (upper body). Karlsson’s return date isn’t known but coach Bob Boughner said before the game that Simek could potentially return Thursday against Vegas.

The Canadiens and Ottawa Senators have different goals this season as NHL franchises. Heading into the third year of Marc Bergevin’s “reset”, the Canadiens GM spent right up to the NHL’s US$81.5-million salary cap during the off-season, adding forwards Josh Anderson and Tyler Toffoli, defenceman Joel Edmundson and backup goalie Jake Allen. This is a rebuilding season for the Senators, who had three first-round picks at last year’s NHL Entry Draft and have stockpiled 10 first-round picks since 2015.
