Dubnyk gets third straight shutout as Wild beat Stars 4-0

ST. PAUL, Minn.  - Devan Dubnyk stopped 29 shots for his third straight shutout and 22nd of his career as the Minnesota Wild beat the Dallas Stars 4-0 Saturday night.

Mikael Granlund, Nino Niederreiter, Eric Staal and Tyler Graovac scored for Minnesota, which improved to 6-2-1.

Kari Lehtonen made 11 saves for Dallas, which has just four goals in its last four games.

A key to the Wild's early-season success has been offensive contributions from all players. Eighteen players have accounted for Minnesota's 32 goals and a league-best 18 now have points.

Granlund added his name to that goal list to give Minnesota a 1-0 lead in the first with the Wild's first short-handed goal of the season.

Dubnyk didn't have to make any spectacular saves in establishing a new personal best scoreless stretch of 180 minutes. The last goal he allowed was in overtime last Saturday.
