Dubnyk looks to stay perfect

The Minnesota Wild will stick with Devan Dubnyk when they host the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight at Xcel.

Dubnyk, who won his first two stars for the Wild since coming over in a trade from Arizona, began his time in Minnesota by shutting out Buffalo, then stopped 25 of 26 shots in a 3-1 win over his old Coyotes teammates Saturday.

With that win, Dubnyk continued what’s been a stellar bounce-back season and now sits at 11-5-2 on the year, with a 2.49 GAA and .921 save percentage.

For Columbus, Sergei Bobrovsky will start in goal.
