It’s time once again for Wild fans to decide the DQ Bakes Play of the Week based on three of the best efforts provided by Wild players from recent games. Voting ends Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.
The winning vote getter for the week of Jan. 11 was Grand-Sauce 2 Parise. On Jan 5, 2016 at Columbus, Mikael Granlund and Zach Parise teamed up for the score. Granlund cut in at the circles in the high slot, and floated a perfect pass onto Parise's tape, who snuck a shot under the goalie's arm for his second goal of the game.
This week’s nominees are:
PLAY #1 Sutes Up (Jan. 12, 2016 vs. BUF) Ryan Suter, on a shorthanded give-and-go with Erik Haula, handcuffed Sabres goalie Linus Ullmark with a backhand that hit the crossbar, went straight up in the air, and on the way down bounced off Ullmark’s back and in for the goal.
PLAY #2 Tap-in-Thomas (Jan. 12, 2016 vs. BUF) With the extra attacker late in the third period, Thomas Vanek went to the net and redirected a wrist shot from the point by Ryan Suter to pull the Wild within one goal.
PLAY #3 Duby Mitt (Jan. 15, 2016 vs. WPG) Devan Dubnyk flashed the leather once again, this time snagging a power play one-timer by the Jets Dustin Byfuglien near the midway point of the second period in a one-goal game.
