(Anaheim, CA)  —  For the second time in three games the Wild blanked the Ducks, this time 4-0 in Anaheim.  Ryan Hartman, Jon Merrill and Kirill Kaprizov all scored second period goals as the Wild broke open the hockey game.  Jake Lucchini scored in the third period to finish off the victory as the Wild also beat the Ducks 2-0 last Thursday in St. Paul.  Filip Gustavsson pitched the shutout on 27 saves for his third shutout of the season.  Jonas Brodin left the game six minutes into the third period and did not return.  The Wild are 6-0-2 in their last eight and are now three points back of Vegas for the final playoff spot in the West.  The road trip ends tonight in L.A. against the Kings with a 9 P-M puck drop.

Joe O’Donnell caught up with Gustavsson in the Minnesota Wild Radio Network following his shutout performance:
