(St. Paul, MN) — Devan Dubnyk recorded his first shutout of the season as Minnesota blanked Calgary 3-0. Dubnyk made 22 saves in his third game, and second, start since missing extended time for a family issue. He earned wins in both of his starts since his return. It’s the 32nd shutout of his N-H-L career.
Joel Eriksson Ek returned from an upper body injury his third goal of the season proved to be the game winner, the fourth of his N-H-L career. Luke Kunin and Eric Staal also scored in the win.
The Wild are now 10-2-3 at home this season and have points in 16 of the last 20 games overall. The N-H-L is off for the holiday break meaning the Wild won’t return to action until Friday night in Colorado.
