St. Wholesale Jerseys . Paul, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Marc-Edouard Vlasic scored the winner again, burying a slap shot with 1:52 remaining in overtime to lift the San Jose Sharks to a 4-3 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Tuesday night. The Sharks snapped a seven-game losing streak against the Wild at Xcel Energy Center when Vlasics shot from above the left circle near the boards flew past Darcy Kuemper on the near side. The defenseman also gave San Jose a dramatic 3-2 win on Monday in Winnipeg, scoring with 4.5 seconds left in regulation. Melker Karlsson, Joe Pavelski and Tommy Wingels scored three consecutive goals to give the Sharks a 3-2 lead in the third period, but Jason Zuckers second goal of the game tied it for Minnesota. We stuck with it as much as we could, said Wingels. We made some mistakes there and they were able to tie the game, but we were fighting in the corners and winning some battles. Zucker added an assist for three points and Jared Spurgeon also scored for the Wild, who fell to 2-4-4 in their last 10 games. They were coming off a 7-1 loss in Dallas on Saturday. I thought we competed and fought well, said Minnesota defenseman Ryan Suter. Of course theres some plays wed like to have back, but we stuck with them the whole game. Alex Stalock made 28 saves for San Jose and Kuemper stopped 22 shots for the Wild. Pavelski tied the game at 2-2 6:21 into the third period, scoring on a snap shot directly after Logan Couture won a faceoff in the left circle. Wingels gave the Sharks a 3-2 lead just 74 seconds later, driving to the net to score on his own rebound after his original shot was deflected by a Wild defenseman and fluttered into Kuemper. Zuckers second goal came at 12:12 of the third period, tying the score. He tapped in Charlie Coyles sharp-angle pass from near the right boards into the crease. Minnesota killed off a late San Jose power play after Thomas Vanek was sent off for interference with 2:02 left in regulation. Earlier, Stalock turned the puck over after icing was waived off and Jason Pominville raced in to tip the goaltenders attempted clearing pass, leading to Zuckers first goal at 15:21 of the opening period. Good puck movement set up Spurgeons goal just 2:01 later on a one-timer from the right circle off Zuckers pass from behind the goal line. Karlsson scored for the third consecutive game, drawing the Sharks within 2-1 at 10:54 of the second period.

The Pacers rallied from 17 points down in the first half and almost wiped out another double-digit deficit after halftime, but had the same offensive troubles late that plagued them early in the game. Paul George had 27 points and 11 rebounds to lead the Pacers, who stayed a game and a half up on Miami for the lead in the Eastern Conference after the Heat lost in overtime to Chicago.GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Aaron Rodgers has been cleared to return from a left collarbone injury, just in time to start Sunday for the Packers against the Chicago Bears in a game to decide the NFC North title. With no advance warning and little fanfare, the franchise quarterback received the long-awaited good news at the same time as the rest of his teammates Thursday. "This is a fun day for me, but I think the focus needs to be on this game and the opportunity we have to win the division," Rodgers said. Soon enough. But the spotlight for now is squarely on the return of one of the NFLs most irreplaceable players. Green Bay (7-7-1) is 2-5-1 since Rodgers went down during the first series of a 27-20 loss Nov. 4 to Chicago. The Packers have managed to hang on, with a shot to win a third straight division title with a victory Sunday at Soldier Field. "Ill start with the announcement that were preparing for the Chicago Bears with Aaron Rodgers as our starting quarterback," coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Thursday after practice. Win and Green Bay returns to Lambeau Field the following weekend to host a wild-card team in the first round of the playoffs. "Were in it. You know we have a chance against our rivals, and what a better way than to go down there and get some redemption and host a home playoff game," Rodgers said. The last two months have been filled with angst for Packers fans. Discussions about whether Rodgers should risk future injury or return to bolster Green Bays playoff chances have filled sports talk radio shows and holiday office parties. Now imagine what it was like for the Packers brass and team doctor. The organization made a big investment in Rodgers this past off-season, signing him to a five-year contract extension through the 2019 season worth as much as $110 million. "Every football player that plays in this game Sunday will have risk. I think we all understand that," McCarthy said. "So weve done our due diligence. Weve gone through all the evaluations and we feel it is time. Aaron is ready to play." Finally at 8:05 a.m. Thursday, McCarthy gave the official word at a team meeting. NNo rousing speeches or rounds of applause. Cheap NHL Jerseys. "The scene? We were sitting in the team room and he told us," Rodgers said matter-of-factly. "That was the scene." Rodgers is returning just when pass-rushing linebacker Clay Matthews is leaving the lineup again with a right thumb injury. Green Bay also has gone the majority of the season without tight end Jermichael Finley (neck). Projected starting left tackle Bryan Bulaga went down in training camp. Defensive end Johnny Jolly (shoulder/neck) was the latest Packer to get knocked out for the year last week. Still, the Packers managed to start 5-2 despite the injuries with Rodgers leading the offence. Things changed drastically after the 2011 NFL MVP got hurt on a sack while scrambling out of the pocket in the Week 9 loss to Chicago at Lambeau Field. The Packers went on a five-game winless skid, shuffling through three more starting quarterbacks. Green Bay then won two straight with backup Matt Flynn before falling 38-31 last week to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Losses by Chicago and the Detroit Lions set up the winner-take-all finale Sunday with the Bears for the division. Rodgers impending return wasnt the only good injury news Thursday in Titletown. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy was held out of practice with a lingering ankle injury, though McCarthy expects his 1,100-yard rusher to play Sunday. Playmaking receiver Randall Cobb, out since Week 6 with a leg injury, is moving well in practice and appears to be getting closer to returning. While he wont make the final call, Cobb said "This week in practice Im going out and preparing to play." And now with Rodgers back, positive vibes are reverberating through the locker room. Rodgers has gained added perspective from having to watch from the sideline with a headset. Hes been there to help Flynn. He understands that every move he makes in Chicago will be dissected by armchair quarterbacks. "Its easy to talk about it with you guys and understand the risks," he said. "But when youre out on the field, its about performing and playing and not worrying about it."
