Dubnyk Holds Leafs At Bay In 2-1 Wild Win
TORONTO (AP) — Devan Dubnyk added to his ironman streak, making his 32nd straight start, and the Minnesota Wild extended their string of road wins to nine, hanging on for a 2-1 victory over the slumping Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday night.
The loss was the sixth straight for the Maple Leafs (27-41-6), who came close several times to tying it late.
Charlie Coyle and Thomas Vanek scored for Minnesota (41-25-7), which is 23-6-2 since acquiring Dubnyk on Jan. 14.
Toronto defenseman Jake Gardiner scored with 6:24 remaining, tapping in the puck after Joffrey Lupul's slap shot trickled through Dubnyk's legs. Lupul had gone 17 games without a point.
Dubnyk can add to his streak Tuesday against the New York Islanders.
