(St. Paul, MN) — The Minnesota Wild continued their recent hot streak with a 3-2 win over the Colorado Avalanche. Jason Zucker scored the eventual winner midway through the third period as the Wild won their second consecutive game, improved to 3-0-1 in their last four games and improved to 5-1-2 at Xcel Energy Center. Alex Stalock made 25 saves for the victory as the Wild announced before the game that Devan Dubnyk will be out for the time being dealing with a family issue.
Mats Zuccarello and Jordan Greenway scored the other Wild goals while Colorado defenseman Cale Makar scored both Avalanche goals. Wild start a three game trip out east on Saturday when they travel to Boston for a 6 P-M face off against the Bruins.
