The Wild lost last night, on Election Day, 3-1 to the Sharks.

The Wild gave up two goals early in the first, but they cut the lead in half at the end of the period. It would be the only goal they scored all night. Goalie Manny Fernandez had many spectacular saves, keeping the game fairly close. The Sharks added a goal with about 5 minutes left in the third period. It was coach Jacques Lemaire‘s 1000th game as a head coach.
