Wild beat Canadiens

MONTREAL: Jason Zucker scored three goals in the third period and Devan Dubnyk made 41 saves for a shutout as the Minnesota Wild beat the Montreal Canadiens 3-0 to end their three-game losing streak on Thursday night.

It was the second multi-goal game in two nights for Zucker, who scored twice in a 4-2 loss at Toronto on Wednesday. This time, he had one short-handed, one at even strength and one into an empty net.

“I’ll take them any way I can get them,” Zucker said. “I guarantee I’ve never done that (score five times in two games). It’s nice to get that, but we’ve got to regroup and get ready for our next game in Philly.”

Dubnyk, who has struggled early on, posted his first shutout this season and the 25th of his career. He is 7-1-1 against Montreal.

Third-string Montreal goalie Charlie Lindgren made 32 saves but lost for the first time in six nhl starts. Lindgren, from Lakeville, Minnesota, started his third straight game in place of injured Carey Price.

“I knew he was doing extremely well,” Dubnyk said about Lindgren. “Good for him.

“I know him a little bit from Minnesota and he’s a nice kid. It’s always fun to see a guy playing well like that and he certainly did that tonight.”

The Canadiens controlled the puck most of the game but had two goals wiped out after video review.

Tyler Ennis hit a post behind Lindgren on a breakaway and, when the puck went down to the other end, Karl Alzner tipped Alex Galchenyuk’s pass out of the air and into the Minnesota net 6:21 into the game. But it was waved off by the officials and called no goal after replay review even though Alzner’s stick appeared to be quite clearly below the height of the crossbar.

Officials ruled goaltender interference when Charles Hudon scored from the crease with five minutes left in the third period. While there was some contact, it appeared to be Wild defenseman Matt Dumba who pushed Dubnyk aside in the crease.
