Video: Tommy Wingels scores in OT to give Sharks the win over Stars

Feb 6, 2014, 1:43 AM EDT

Tommy Wingels let the play develop, then made no mistake when he got the one shot he needed.

Wingels scored the winning goal for the San Jose Sharks in a 2-1 overtime victory over the Dallas Stars on Wednesday, snapping a shot past Kari Lehtonen off a nice set up from Martin Havlat, who opened the scoring.

The Stars get the single point and move to within one point of the struggling Vancouver Canucks for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference.

The Wingels goal made up for a lost opportunity for the Sharks to win the game in regulation. They had a pair of late third-period power plays – actually they had three of the four man advantages on the evening – but failed to convert.

In fact, they managed only one shot on goal combined over three power plays. It’s been a recent sore spot of late.

San Jose left winger Matt Nieto left the game in the second period and did not play another shift. As per Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area, Nieto was seen afterward with his left foot in a walking boot, the result of blocking a Trevor Daley slap shot.

    Wingels? Wingels? Got it! He’s the guy who asked the Olympian, Brown to dance. He scored! Wow! Maybe he can replace Stamkos. Wait! He’s American. He can replace Brown. But! There’s no dancing in Sochi unless you’re trying to get to your bed in the confined living quarters. I’m sure Brown would let him carry his luggage.
