Devan Dubnyk G MIN 16 Hrs
Dubnyk was outstanding once again Saturday, stopping 33 of 34 shots in a win over Colorado.
Dubnyk has won five of his last six games, allowing two goals or less in each of those contests. He's also suffered just two regulation losses in his last 16 games played. Simply remarkable. He's an automatic roll every game.

Dubnyk has been confirmed as the starter in goal for Saturday's game against the Avalanche, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
It's the franchise record-tying 20th start in a row for Dubnyk, who has already posted five shutouts during his stint with the Wild. As per usual, he'll make for an excellent play in daily formats, with a favorable matchup against a presumably fatigued Avalanche squad that nipped the Stars in a shootout a night earlier.

Dubnyk is expected to receive the start in goal Saturday against the Avalanche, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
If that ends up being the case, it would go down as the 20th consecutive start for the netminder, tying Niklas Backstrom's franchise record established in 2009. Dubnyk has been more than deserving of the burdensome workload, as he's gone an incredible 14-3-1 with a 1.68 GAA, .934 save percentage, and five shutouts since his Jan. 14 acquisition from the Coyotes.

Dubnyk faced exactly the same number of shots as opposing netminder Pekka Rinne -- 29 -- on Thursday, but he stopped 27 to Rinne's 26 in a 4-2 victory over Nashville.
Dubnyk's been impressing left and right, and this is one of the most amazing additions to his Wild resume -- a win over arguably the league's best goalie and the league's best team. We have no choice but to treat him as an overnight star; proceed accordingly.

Dubnyk will be in the net for Thursday's game against the Predators, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Dubnyk will make his 19th straight start for the Wild, just one off the franchise record. He's been phenomenal throughout his tenure with the Wild with a 13-3-1 record, 1.66 GAA, and .935 save percentage over his previous 18 turns, though he did suffer a rare misstep his last time out against the Oilers. He should keep the Wild competitive in a road matchup with the league's top team, but with the incomparable Pekka Rinne in the opposite net, getting the win could prove elusive for Dubnyk.

He'd allowed a grand total of four goals while going 5-0 against Edmonton this year, but this time the Oil got the best of Dubnyk and the Wild. This marks just his third regulation loss (and fourth in total) over 18 starts in a Minnesota sweater.

Dubnyk needed to make just 15 stops in Friday's 4-0 shutout victory over the Oilers. It was his fifth shutout and 12th win in 16 starts as a member of the Wild.Regardless of the fact that Dubnyk's latest triumph was against the lowly Oilers, this guy has been absolutely on fire since joining his new team on Jan. 15. His otherworldly play -- all while dragging the Wild back into playoff contention over the last month -- is easily one of the best stories of the current NHL season. The fantasy side of things has been equally as impactful to owners who have been lucky enough to have access to Dubnyk's services since he joined the boys in green and red. The Wild are currently one point back of San Jose for the final Western Conference wild card spot with two games in hand, so it's safe to fully expect coach Mike Yeo to continue to ride the 28-year-old. Take advantage.

Dubnyk will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Oilers, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.The Wild won't consider resting Dubnyk against his former team in Edmonton, especially while he continues to pile up the wins. Exiled from the Oilers just over a year ago after posting a 3.36 GAA and .894 save percentage over 32 turns, Dubnyk has bounced around the league since then, but seems to have finally found a home in Minnesota. He's made the last 15 starts for the Wild, going 11-2-1 while posting four shutouts. Don't think twice about keeping him active Friday.
