How Reimer guided Sharks to shootout win over Wild originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea

Erik Karlsson summarized the Sharks’ 3-2 comeback shootout win over the Minnesota Wild with one simple sentence.

“We stuck with it the whole game.”

The Sharks, down 2-0 with seven minutes to go in the game, looked dead in the water. Then, Steven Lorentz got in front of the net and put in the rebound from a Marc-Edouard Vlasic point shot. Nico Sturm tied it two minutes later with a long shot that eluded Filip Gustavsson. Finally, Alexander Barabanov clinched it in extra time with his first-ever NHL shootout goal.

But back to Karlsson’s point, there were many times where the Sharks could’ve packed it in. When the Wild stormed out of the gate with a 9-1 shots rampage. After back-to-back Kevin Labanc offensive zone penalties in the second period. After a Karlsson turnover on the power play gave Minnesota a short-handed goal early in the third period.

That’s why you keep games close. The good teams keep grinding until they see daylight.

It was a couple of old reliables that kept the Sharks in it.
