Wild’s Dubnyk named NHL #2 star

Minnesota Wild Goalie Devan Dubnyk was named the NHL’s number two star for the week ending October 30. Dubnyk was flawless, denying all 94 shots against in three starts to lead the Wild (6-2-1, 13 points) to a 3-0-0 week and first place in the Central Division. He made 27 saves in a 5-0 win over the Boston Bruins Oct. 25, 38 saves in a 4-0 victory over the Buffalo Sabres Oct. 27 and 29 saves in a 4-0 triumph over the Dallas Stars Oct. 29. In doing so, Dubnyk became the first goaltender in Wild history to post three consecutive shutouts and also took over the longest shutout streak in franchise history (181:43). The 30-year-old Regina, Sask., native improved to 64-36-9 in a Minnesota uniform (113 GP), including a 5-1-1 record in seven outings this season (1.43 GAA, .952 SV%, 3 SO).
