ST. PAUL, Minn. - Devan Dubnyk stopped 15 shots for his first shutout this season to lead the Minnesota Wild to a 3-0 victory over the reeling Anaheim Ducks on Saturday night.

Matt Dumba, Thomas Vanek and Ryan Carter scored to send Anaheim to its sixth loss in the first seven games.

The Ducks, last season's runner-up in the Western Conference finals, have scored just six goals this season.

Minnesota outshot Anaheim 15-3 in the first period and 26-9 after two. The Ducks were hanging around despite getting outplayed before they took four penalties in the first 11 minutes of the second period.

As Patrick Maroon skated out of the penalty box with 6:59 left in the second, Vanek ripped a shot past Frederik Andersen to give Minnesota a 2-0 lead.

With 1:35 left in the second, Carter took a pass from Justin Fontaine on a short-handed 2-on-1 rush to cap the scoring.
