Seeking missing offense, Sharks again face Wild

After a home-opening victory over San Jose that was much tougher than the score suggests, the Minnesota Wild return to home ice Sunday night in St. Paul, Minn., with the Sharks looking to find an elusive offense.

The Wild captured Friday night's game, 4-1, yet, the outcome was very much in doubt until the Wild scored a pair of empty netters in the final 75 seconds. What's more, Minnesota's starting netminder Cam Talbot left the game with a noncontact injury.

Talbot's availability is uncertain for Sunday, although Wild coach Dean Evason said after the game "all indications are it's not serious," and he has Kaapo Kahkonen ready after the 24-year-old Finn made 17 saves on 17 shots in relief, playing the entire second and third periods.
