(St. Paul, MN)  —  Martin Jones stopped 22 shots as the Kraken stuffed the Wild 4-0 on Thursday night at Xcel Energy Center.  The depleted Wild, without four big forwards due to injury, were overpowered by Seattle most of the night.  The Kraken scored three consecutive second period goals to open up the scoring and followed by Alex Wennberg’s second of the night in the third to cap the scoring.  Jones notches his first shutout of the season and fifth all time against Minnesota.  Marc Andre Fleury suffers his first loss in regulation in his last seven starts as he made 19 saves.  While the Kraken have won three straight the Wild saw their two game streak halted.  Minnesota is still 5-2-1 in their last eight grabbing 11 of 16 points.  The Wild are off for the weekend as they start a three game trip on Tuesday in Los Angeles.
