After 3 Straight Losses, Wild & Dubnyk Record 2nd Straight Shutouts
By all accounts, the Minnesota Wild's start to the 2017-18 season has been underwhelming -- sitting in last place in the Central Division. After a 5-7-2 start and three straight losses the Wild have rebounded for two straight shutouts.
Best of all, the shutouts have come in the midst of the team's current road trip. On Thursday (11/9) Minnesota shutout the Canadiens in Montreal 3-0. Tonight (11/11) the Wild rolled into Philly and shutout the Flyers 1-0 -- evening their early record to 7-7-2.
During that two game stretch, Minnesota goaltender Devan Dubnyk has faced 73 shots, stopping them all.
Next up for the Minnesota Wildstars is a turnaround game against the Flyers again -- this time on home ice in St. Paul Tuesday night (11/14).
