Since Devan Dubnyk took over the starting job in Minnesota on Jan. 15, he hasn’t lost consecutive games in regulation. That streak has continued into the playoffs.
Behind Dubnyk’s 24 saves, the Wild took a 2-1 series over the St. Louis Blues with an impressive 3-0 victory Monday night.
After a scoreless first period, the Wild blitzed Jake Allen with a pair of goals in 2:05 after some solid work by the line of Zach Parise, Jason Pominville and Mikael Granlund:
The shutout was the result of a big bounce-back performance by the Wild, who lost Game 2 4-1, thanks to a Vladimir Tarasenko hat trick. The Russian sniper didn’t get a shot off Monday night as the Blues lost their ninth straight playoff road game.
Game 4 is Wednesday night back at Xcel Energy Center in Minnesota.
