WILD 3, OILERS 0
Eric Staal broke out of an early slump with two goals and an assist, and Minnesota beat Edmonton.
Brad Hunt also scored for the Wild, who may be without goaltender Devan Dubnyk for a while. Dubnyk was upended early in the second period after Minnesota’s Ryan Donato fell to the ice while battling the Oilers’ Brandon Manning. Dubnyk tried to leap over both sliding players, but fell hard on his backside and appeared to hit the back of his head on the ice.
Playing his 300th game with the Wild, Dubnyk was checked by a trainer before exiting after making nine saves. Alex Stalock came on and finished with 16 saves.
Edmonton is 2-2-1 in its past five games after opening the season with five straight wins. The Oilers, shut out at Winnipeg on Sunday, have gone 152:38 without goal.
