In the last two games, both Wild wins, Dubnyk has surrendered just one goal in six periods.

2. Dumba nets the game's lone goal

Wild defenseman Matt Dumba is known for his menacing slap shot. Well, he had a chance to unleash it Thursday night, and it caught the twine to put the Wild on the scoreboard.
