Recap: Minnesota vs. New Jersey

St. Paul, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - Josh Harding stopped all 19 shots he faced between the pipes as the Minnesota Wild blanked the New Jersey Devils, 4-0, from Xcel Energy Center.

Mikael Granlund, Torrey Mitchell, Dany Heatley and Jason Pominville all lit the lamp for Minnesota, which won for the fifth time in its last six tries. Nido Niederreiter had three assists.

"The guys are making it easy. It's never about one player. We win as a team and we lose as a team like we always say. This was another team win," Harding said.

Cory Schneider allowed three goals on 19 shots in defeat as the Devils have lost for the second straight contest on the heels of their first two-game winning streak of the season.

"It's frustrating to a point, but you've just got to keep plugging away. Everything's not going to go your way and you have to just keep fighting through it," Devils center Stephen Gionta said.

Pominville broke free midway through the opening period but was denied at point blank range by Schneider. The puck bounced to Niederreiter, whose rebound try was also blocked, but Schneider failed to find the loose disc and Granlund was there to blast home the eventual game-winner.

Former Devil Zach Parise received a pass near the goal and wristed a shot that was blocked in front. A slew of Wild players crashed the net and Mitchell was credited with his first goal of the season at the 7:35 mark.

Heatley whiffed on a shot in front on a feed from Granlund early in the third, but made up for it moments later when he deflected a Keith Ballard shot into the back of the net.

Pominville's team-leading 10th goal of the season came with 2:25 left in the clash after the Devils pulled Schneider.
