, Minn. (AP) Devan Dubnyk made sure the
Minnesota Wild didn’t let another three-goal lead slip away, especially not with
a chance to keep the rival Chicago Blackhawks reeling.Dubnyk made a season-high
44 saves, Charlie Coyle scored twice and the Wild beat the Blackhawks 3-0 on
Saturday night. Mikko Koivu also scored in the first period for Minnesota, which
is 9-0-3 in its last 12 home games. It was Dubnyk’s fourth shutout of the season
and No. 28 for his career.On Thursday night, the Wild gave up a 3-0 lead to
Arizona and lost 4-3 in overtime.”It’s funny we end up 3-0 again,” Dubnyk said.
”So, couldn’t have written it any better to give ourselves a chance at a
do-over, and we did that.”Jeff Glass made 16 saves for the last-place
Blackhawks, who have lost five straight and nine of their past 11.”It’s an
environment that we’re not accustomed to and we’re trying to remain positive,
looking forward to competing the right way and giving yourself a chance to play
with a purpose in a team-structured game,” Chicago coach Joel Quenneville said.
”That’s where we’re at and I think that’s what we’re dealing with. Find a way to
make a contribution in the right way.”The Wild bounced back nicely from that
loss to the Coyotes, with Dubnyk playing a key role as Chicago outshot Minnesota
44-19, including 15-7 in the third period.”I thought Devan was really good,”
Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. ”He had to make some really good saves. They
shoot the puck from everywhere. Just turn around and throw it at the net. But he
was really good. This was like he played the first half of last year today.
That’s what it reminded me of anyway.”Coyle had four goals in his first 33 games
of the season. But he has found his scoring touch while playing on the third
line with Zach Parise and Matt Cullen, picking up four goals in his past six
games.He started the scoring at 1:58 of the first when he banked in a shot off
Glass from behind the net. Koivu made it 2-0 at 6:31 when he deflected a
power-play shot from Matt Dumba from the right circle.”We were playing down low
and trying to win battles and controlling the puck and it paid off for us right
away to kind of get us going a little bit,” Coyle said. ”That definitely gave us
confidence and we just kind of fed off of that and tried to keep it going.”Coyle
scored again on the rush in the second, giving him his first multi-goal game of
the season.Chicago was shut out for the first time since Nov. 4 at Minnesota and
the third time overall this season.The Wild improved to 11-4-1 in their last 16
regular-season meetings with the Blackhawks.Stopping pucks has been more of an
issue for the Blackhawks than scoring. Since star goaltender Corey Crawford went
down with an upper-body injury in December Youth

, Chicago has allowed the sixth-most goals in
the league and is 7-10-3 during that stretch.”Well it’s surely getting smaller,
we know that,” Toews said of the window to make the playoffs. ”We’re well aware
of the situation. As we said all along, we got to focus on your job and that’s
what we’re going to keep doing.”NOTES: Minnesota had its biggest crowd of the
season with an announced attendance of 19,227. … Chicago D Carl Dahlstrom made
his NHL debut. Dahlstrom, a second-round draft pick by the Blackhawks in 2013,
had 23 points in 47 games for Rockford of the AHL. … Chicago F Patrick Sharp was
scratched for the fifth time in seven games. Sharp has just six goals and seven
assists in 47 games this season. … Wild D Viktor Loov was scratched a day after
being recalled from the AHL and two days after being acquired in a trade from
the New Jersey Devils.UP NEXTBlackhawks: Play at Arizona on Monday.Wild: Host
the New York Rangers on Tuesday. Matt Martin is going back to the New York
Islanders.The Toronto Maple Leafs have dealt the feisty forward to the
Islanders, who drafted him in 2008. The Leafs get minor-league goalie Eamon
McAdam in the deal.Also on Tuesday, the Islanders agreed to a one-year, $1.5
million deal with goalie Robin Lehner. Lehner had a 3.01 goals-against average
with a .908 save percentage in 53 games with the Buffalo Sabres last season.The
Sabres declined to give Lehner a $4 million qualifying offer as a restricted
free agent and relinquished his rights. He will try to improve the Islanders
goaltending which allowed a league-high 293 goals last season.Martin signed a
four-year, $10 million deal with the Leafs prior to the 2016 season. After
playing every game in his first season with the Leafs, Martin suited up for just
50 games this past season and did not dress for Toronto’s seven-game playoff
series against the Boston Bruins.In 132 games for the Leafs, the 29-year-old
Martin had eight goals, 13 assists and 173 penalty minutes.The 23-year-old
McAdam split the 2017-18 season between Bridgeport of the AHL and Worcester of
the ECHL. A third-round pick of the Islanders in 2013, McAdam has not played in
the NHL.The move comes two days after the Leafs beat out the Islanders for
marquee free agent John Tavares, who had been with New York since starting his
NHL career in 2009.It marks the first trade between new Leafs GM Kyle Dubas and
the man who preceded him in that role – Islanders GM Lou Lamoriello.—
