No surprises from Wild
Devan Dubnyk will make his 33rd straight start tonight when the Wild host the Flames in Minnesota.
Dubnyk, lights-out since arriving in Minnesota, is 9-3-0 in march with a 1.82 GAA and .941 save percentage and was stellar in his last outing, stopping 37 of 38 shots in a win over the Islanders. At this point, it’s very conceivable that he’ll remain the starter for most, if not all, of Minnesota’s final eight games of the regular season — head coach Mike Yeo said he worries more about not starting Dubnyk as opposed to starting him too often — which means Dubnyk (33-11-3) has an outside chance at a 40-win campaign, which should strengthen his case for a Vezina finalist spot.
For the Flames, Karri Ramo gets the start in goal.
Jackets at ‘Hawks: Sergei Bobrovsky vs. Corey Crawford
Stars at Oilers: Kari Lehtonen (probable) vs. Richard Bachman
