Dubnyk's consecutive starts streak ends at 39


The longest streak of consecutive games started by an NHL goalie in nearly a decade will end Thursday when the Minnesota Wild play the Nashville Predators.

Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo told KFAN that goaltender Devan Dubnyk will get his first night off since being traded to the Wild on Jan. 15.

It will put an end to 39 consecutive starts (38 with the Wild); the NHL's longest streak for a goalie since the 2007-08 season, the Star Tribune says.

Kuemper told Russo that he's looking forward to getting some game action: “I know what I can do. I feel I’m a better goalie now than I was at the start of the year with all this practice. I feel my game is in a pretty good place right now.”

As for Dubnyk, his impressive run catapulted the Wild from the back of the Western Conference standings all the way to the top wild-card seed, which they currently hold, along with a playoff berth following Tuesday's road victory in Chicago.

Kuemper will get an opportunity to help Minnesota tie the 2005-06 Red Wings for the longest road win streak in NHL history when they go for a 12th straight win in Nashville.

Finally, some amazing statistics show just how awesome Dubnyk has been.
