  • Devan Dubnyk Puts the Game On His Stick


    The Coyotes began the third period with 6 shots, but would finish it with 23. The Coyotes pushed back immensely and fired the puck at will. Devan Dubnyk was immediately revived from being frozen in time and put on a goaltending clinic the final ten minutes of the game. He was able to make all the saves he should plus a couple that no goaltender really has any business making. His stellar play was a surprise for having seen no action throughout the game, but it was also Dubnyk who would continue to twist the fate of the game with a flick of his stick.

    The extra frame would have its own drama, with both teams having power play time and plenty of 4-on-4 time because of it. Ultimately, the Wild would survive their second OT and head to the shootout, which they also previously had not won. This time Duclair would prove the hero as he was the only player to score, though Charlie Coyle nearly knocked the goal off its moorings with his shot as he tried to tie and extend the shootout. It was an ugly and frustrating loss for a team that showed plenty of jump to start the night and now has 8 days to sit around and think about what it did.
