ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk left a 3-0 win against the Colorado Avalanche in the second period Saturday because of a lower-body injury.

Dubnyk appeared to injure himself after denying a shot by Avalanche forward Jarome Iginla with 9:52 remaining in the period. After making the save, Dubnyk pushed off on his left leg and clutched his left knee.

Dubnyk headed to the bench during the next stoppage and left the game during a television timeout with 9:05 to go in the second.

Dubnyk made the first 11 saves, and Darcy Kuemper stopped the final nine, four in the third period, and got credit for the win.

Wild coach Mike Yeo told the Star Tribune he did not expect Dubnyk's injury to be serious but he will be examined Sunday.

Dubnyk is not expected to travel to play the Avalanche on Monday. In addition to the injury, his wife is due to give birth to their second child.
