Devan Dubnyk allowed three goals on 30 shots in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Dubnyk helped propel Minnesota to a first round upset over St. Louis but he hasn't had the same kind of success in round 2. The Hawks have scored seven goals in two games against Dubnyk in this series. The 28-year-old will have to steal a game or two if the Wild are going to get back into this series. Minnesota now trails 2-0 after two games in Chicago, but they will be relieved to be heading home for Games Three and Four. On a different note, Dubnyk managed to pick up an assist on Matt Dumba's third period goal. May 3 - 11:35 PM

Devan Dubnyk will get the start in game two of Minnesota's best-of-seven series against Chicago.

Dubnyk was surprisingly average in game one, but it would be foolish for anyone to write him off. Dubnyk has been extremely good since joining the Wild and he will look to bounce-back and get his team back in the series on Sunday.

Look for Devan Dubnyk to rebound from his mediocre performance in Game 1 against Chicago Friday.

He did not look sharp in the first period as the Hawks scored three times but he did play better until the third period when he allowed Teuvo Teravainen's game winner. Dubnyk has had no trouble responding favorably to poor games this season. We fully expect him to do so Sunday when the Wild faces of against the Hawks for Game 2.

Devan Dubnyk had his second stinker of the playoffs, this time making just 31 saves during Minnesota's 4-3 Game One loss to Chicago on Friday night.

Dubnyk looked mentally slow and with unusually large holes in his coverage. Perhaps one can chalk it up to over-usage, after all this was Dubnyk's 46th start since mid-January with the Wild. Be that as it may, he let in four softies. The fourth of which was an especially sharp punch to the guts as his team had erased a first period 3-0 deficit just 10 game minutes prior. Dubnyk's current playoff record drops to 4-3 with 17 goals against.

Devan Dubnyk will get the start against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game One of the second round on Friday night.

Through his first six games during the playoffs, Dubnyk has posted a 4-2 record with a shutout and three Quality Starts. He's allowed just 13 goals on 149 combined shots, however six of those goals came in one game to Nashville during the first round. Dubnyk followed up that start with his shutout. In two starts this season versus Chicago while with Minnesota, Dubnyk's turned away 56 of 57 combined shots.

Devan Dubnyk has been voted a finalist for the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, which is awarded "to the player who best exemplifies the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey." This nomination comes in addition to being nominated as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy as the League's top goaltender as well.

Upon being acquired by Minnesota from Arizona on Jan. 15th, Dubnyk had found himself on his fifth team in two seasons. He would go on to set a franchise-record 38 consecutive starts, and help the Wild reach the playoffs for the third straight season after sitting six points out at the time of the trade. Dubnyk went 27-9-2 with five shutouts and 28 Quality starts with Minnesota, he also posted a .936 save percentage and a 1.78 GAA. Considering Dubnyk finished the 2013-14 season away from the team despite being on Montreal's playoff taxi squad, this nomination is well deserved.

Devan Dubnyk stopped 30 of 31 shots in Sunday's 4-1 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Dubnyk made several key saves throughout the game, and he ultimately led the Wild to this series win. Dubnyk had a couple of shaky moments in the series but he made the necessary saves when it counted most. The Wild will not take on the Chicago Blackhawks in a rematch of last season's second round matchup, which the Hawks won in six. Dubnyk has proved that he is capable of stealing a series, and he may just have to do that for the Wild to get to the Conference Finals.

Devan Dubnyk will get the start in Sunday's game six tilt against the St. Louis Blues.

The Wild have an opportunity to put the Blues away in Minnesota. It will be interesting to see how the Wild respond on home ice. The last time these two teams played in Minnesota, the Blues won by a score of 6-1. Dubnyk has a 3-2 record with a 2.61 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage in the 2015 playoffs.

The Minnesota Wild don't want to go back to St. Louis for a potential game seven.

"We don’t want to be going back to St. Louis," goalie Devan Dubnyk said. "We have a chance to close it [Sunday] and we need to do that." The Wild know that it won't be easy to close out the top team in the Central Division but they need to get it done. "One of the toughest things to do is close out a series," said Jordan Leopold, the third-most experienced Wild player with 76 playoff games. "They’re going to be scratching and clawing to tie this thing up. We have to bring our best game, too. It’s a challenge, yes. It comes with preparation [Saturday] and coming back with the same mentality [Sunday]."

Devan Dubnyk will likely regard April 24th as one of his favorite days going forward.

He was selected as a finalist for the Vezina Trophy earlier on Friday the 24th and then he stole a playoff game from the Blues stopping 36 shots. In an understatement Wild coach Mike Yeo said the following about Dubnyk's good fortune on the 24th; "Pretty good day for him. As far as good days go, that would be up there." Look for Dubnyk and his Wild teammates to try and close out the Blues Sunday in Game 6.
Apr 25 - 1:14 PM

Devan Dubnyk was simply sensational in making 36 saves during Friday's Game Five 4-1 victory over St. Louis. Minnesota now leads the series 3-2.

Dubnyk was hit with a dozen shots in the first, and another 19 in the third in an effort that also saw him stop six of seven while on the penalty kill. The 36 saves were more shots faced than the 34 he'd seen in the previous two games combined. Suffice it to say that if Minnesota is getting peak Dubnyk performances like they did in Games Three and Five, they're in the driver's seat towards victory.

Devan Dubnyk is one of the three finalists for the Vezina Trophy.

Dubnyk probably won't win, but the fact that he's even on the list is a huge accomplishment. It was just one season ago that his career appeared to be in jeopardy after collapsing with the Edmonton Oilers. Dubnyk was solid with Arizona at the start of the 2014-15 campaign, but he truly took off after Minnesota acquired him on January 14. He ended up with 2.07 GAA and .929 save percentage in 58 contests this season.
Apr 24 - 6:47 PM

With the series tied at two, Devan Dubnyk will get the start in Friday's Game Five against the St. Louis Blues.

Dubnyk has turned aside 70 of 81 shots sent his way through the first four games, but he surrendered six goals on 17 shots in Game Four on Wednesday night. However Dubnynk has allowed two or fewer goals in 29 of 39 games with Minnesota, and the Wild are 18-0-1 when Minnesota has scored at least three goals.

Devan Dubnyk isn't concerned after having his worst game as a member of the Wild on Wednesday night.

"I know how to handle it," said Dubnyk, who gave up six goals on 17 shots to the Blues in Game 4. "You just feed off past experience. You realize it's a beautiful day here in Minnesota, and the sun came up this morning, and that's going to happen regardless of what happens on the ice. Whatever you need to do, if you spend some time with the family, play around with (his son), whatever brings you some perspective on life. You reset and get back at it. We all know we're a great hockey team, and that was one hockey game." He will look to bounce back in St. Louis on Friday night.
Apr 23 - 6:11 PM

Devan Dubnyk allowed six goals on 17 shots and was pulled late in the second period of the Wild's Game 4 tilt with St. Louis.

It was a really rough night for Dubnyk who got no help from the team in front of him. After getting a 17 save shutout in Game 3, the Blues certainly got the better of him on this night. Six goals is the most goals ever allowed in a Minnesota playoff game. Darcy Kuemper came into the game in relief at the 36:00 minute
