With Devan Dubnyk out through the weekend, recovering from a mild groin strain, the Minnesota Wild leaned on Darcy Kuemper to slow down the San Jose Sharks Saturday night.

Kuemper did more than slow down the Sharks as he made 25 saves in a 2-0 shutout victory for the Wild.

"He looks very confident in there and he looks very poised in there," head coach Mike Yeo said after the game, via "He did a real good job of collecting some pucks, settling things down, and he made some sneaky-big saves. Just little tips and little things through traffic that were very big saves."

Zach Parise scored the game-winner – his ninth goal of the season – and Mikko Koivu added an empty-net goal with 35 seconds left to seal the win.

Next up: versus the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night at Xcel Energy Center.
