Recap: Calgary vs. Minnesota

Calgary, AB (SportsNetwork.com) - Devan Dubnyk stopped all 30 shots fired his way and made several big saves down the stretch for his third shutout of the season as the Minnesota Wild beat the Calgary Flames 1-0 on Tuesday.

Zach Parise continued his solid offensive play with the lone goal for the Wild, who ended a two-game skid. Parise now has six goals in his past six games.

"I think we owe a lot to Dubnyk tonight. He bailed us out on a lot of different breakdowns we had. He was really good," Parise said.

Jonas Hiller turned aside 31 shots for the Flames, who entered the game with wins in five of their previous six games.

"It's a tough loss, but like usual we battled hard," Calgary head coach Bob Hartley said.

Minnesota opened the scoring after Thomas Vanek directed a turnover to Parise, who beat Hiller in front 8:59 into the game.

The Flames outshot the Wild, 14-10, during the second period, but were unable to solve Dubnyk as Minnesota still led 1-0 heading into the final stanza.

Hiller made a quick kick save on Jason Pominville in tight to keep it a one- goal game five minutes into the third. Dubnyk countered minutes later by snagging Johnny Gaudreau's wrister in the slot.

Later in the third, Paul Byron raced into the Minnesota zone on a breakaway, but Dubnyk came up big again as he denied Byron with a pad save.

After the Flames pulled Hiller with over a minute to play, Dubnyk shut the door at the other end to seal the win.

Game Notes

Dubnyk posted his 11th career shutout ... Vanek tallied his 300th career assist ... Minnesota is now 8-2-1 in its last 11 games against Calgary ... The two teams will meet again on Feb. 18 in Calgary.
