Heatley has goal and assist, Kuemper stops 23 shots as Wild beat Predators, 4-0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Dany Heatley had a goal and an assist, Darcy Kuemper made 23 saves for his first career shutout, and the Minnesota Wild beat the Nashville Predators 4-0 on Sunday night.

Jason Zucker and Matt Cooke also scored for Minnesota, which has won five of six.

Kuemper made five saves in the first, nine in the second, and nine in the third. The rookie's best save came with 2:17 left in the third period when he denied former Wild forward Matt Cullen from just outside of the crease on the right side.

The Predators have lost three in a row and six of their last seven.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
