ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Josh Harding made 37 saves in another strong home outing, and the Minnesota Wild beat the San Jose Sharks 3-1 on Sunday night despite recording only 13 shots.

Zach Parise scored twice — once into an empty net — and Mikko Koivu added a goal for the Wild, who have won three of four.

Patrick Marleau scored with 1:41 left for San Jose, which went 1-3 on a four-game trip. The Sharks, who have lost three in a row in regulation for the first time this season, are 0-5-1 in their last six games in Minnesota.

Antti Niemi made 10 saves.

Parise and Koivu scored second-period goals to give Minnesota a 2-0 lead. Parise pushed the Wild's edge back to two goals when he scored at 19:54.
