Wild's Dubnyk finds his groove

Minnesota goalie steps up when team needs him most

by Dan Myers / NHL.com Correspondent

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk got his first taste of the Stanley Cup Playoffs last season. Now, he's doing everything he can to get back.   

Dubnyk is 10-1-1 in his past 13 starts with a 1.98 goals-against average and a save percentage of .930. The recent run is reminiscent of a hot streak he put together last season after joining the Wild, who traded a third-round pick to the Arizona Coyotes on Jan. 14, 2015 for Dubnyk in the hopes he would solidify their goaltending situation. Dubnyk closed the regular season with a 27-9-2 run, and was a finalist for the Vezina and Hart trophies.
