Wild 2, Blues 0
ST. LOUIS — Charlie Coyle and Martin Hanzal scored in the first two periods and Devan Dubnyk made 28 saves to record his second career playoff shutout as Minnesota stayed alive in a first-round series with St. Louis.
Blues goaltender Jake Allen’s first mistake in the series set up the first Wild goal, with 3:10 left in the first period. Allen was caught behind the net as he played the puck, and it went directly to Coyle, who scored his second goal of the series.
The Wild, who trail 3-1 in the series, never had a lead at any point in the first three games but were determined as they took the ice and it showed in the first period. At the time of Coyle’s goal, they were outshooting the Blues 11-1.
