Devan Dubnyk gave up four goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

It's the second time in two weeks that the Wild have dropped a home game to the Blackhawks. Minnesota will now head into their five-day bye with a five-point cushion over Chicago for top spot in the Central Division. The loss drops Dubnyk's record to 32-11-3 on the season. He'll head into the break with a 2.01 goals-against-average and a .933 save percentage.

Mikael Granlund scored a pair of goals in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Wild's second line of Granlund, Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker continued being productive tonight, as they combined to score four points in the loss. As good as they've been, they were no match for 'Hawks captain Jonathan Toews' five-point night. Granlund scored both his goals on the power play, as his first one tied the game at one in the second period, while his second cut his team's deficit to 4-3 in the third. Granlund has five points in his last three games and he's up to 19 goals and 55 points in 59 games this season.

Folin has played at least 17 minutes in each of Minnesota's last three games, but he's also been a minus-3 during that stretch. He has two goals and five assists in 41 games this season. Nate Prosser will also be scratched.

Mikko Koivu has reached the 600-point milestone.

Koivu reached that career mark in his 820th game. Among Finnish-born players, he's the eighth to reach the 600-point mark after Esa Tikkanen, Teppo Numminen, Olli Jokinen, Saku Koivu, Tomas Sandstrom, Jari Kurri, and Teemu Selanne.

Alex Tuch was returned to AHL Iowa on Sunday.

The 20-year-old is still pointless through six games at the highest level. Though he does have 12 goals and 25 points in 36 games down on the farm.
Feb 19 - 9:12 PM

Minnesota's second line comprised of Mikko Koivu, Mikael Granlund and Jason Zucker has been incredible this season.

Since November 25th, a span of 39 games, the unit has scored a combined 43 goals and registered 110 points while recording an unbelievable plus-84 rating. That is utter dominance. Needless to say, Koivu, Granlund and Zucker should be rostered in any hockey pool regardless of format.

Dubnyk earned his 32nd win of the season to break the tie he held with Columbus’ Sergei Bobrovsky for most wins. Dubnyk stopped 37 of 39 shots to end the night with a save percentage of .949. That allowed him to add to another season record he holds for save percentages. With tonight’s blocks added to the tally, he sits at .934. This was the goaltender's fifth win in the last six games. The only loss occurred in a 1-0 contest against Anaheim Tuesday night.
