Anaheim Ducks 0

Minnesota Wild 3

The Wild got the best of the Ducks Saturday night, shutting them out 3-0 at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. It was sweet revenge after Anaheim had defeated Minnesota 4-1 Sunday on the West Coast.

1. Dubnyk's first shutout

Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk played another good game, shutting out the Ducks by stopping all 15 of their shots on goal.

2. Dumba's first goal

Defender Matt Dumba got his first goal of the season in the first period when he backhanded the puck past Ducks goaltender Frederik Andersen into the net.

Minnesota's other two goals were scored by Thomas Vanek and Ryan Carter, both in the second period.

3. The Ducks are really bad

Not only did the Ducks get outshot by the Wild 30-15, they had penalty troubles too; they were called for four consecutive penalties to start the second period.

Anaheim (1-5-1) has scored just six goals so far this season.
