Quick question: Who is the last player to score against Minnesota Wild goalie Devan Dubnyk?

If you want to cheat and look up the answer, you need to go back to Nov. 8 to see that is was defenseman Connor Carrick of the Toronto Maple Leafs at 3:40 of the third period of a 4-2 victory against the Wild.

Since then, Dubnyk has hasn't allowed anything to get past him. On Wednesday, he made 30 saves for his third straight shutout in a 3-0 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers.

It's the second time in his NHL career he has had three straight shutouts, doing it from Oct. 25-29, 2016.

Dubnyk, who hasn't allowed a goal in 196:20 and has made 106 straight saves, became the third goaltender in the League's expansion era (since 1967-68) to have three consecutive shutouts multiple times in the NHL, joining Brian Elliott (three times) and Roberto Luongo (two times), according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

Since being traded to the Wild on Jan. 15, 2015, Dubnyk has 18 shutouts, the most by any goalie in the League in that timeframe.
