In a battle between Devan Dubnyk and Carey Price – arguably the two best goaltenders in the league – Dubnyk prevailed making 32 saves in the win.

What's more impressive is that the Wild were able to score more than 3 goals against Price. It was just the sixth time this season that Price allowed 3 goals or more in his 25 starts.

With the win the Wild are 20-8-4 which is the second-best record in the Western Conference.
