Dubynky has 31 saves for 2nd shutout as Wild beat Lightning

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) – Devan Dubnyk made 31 saves for his second shutout this season, and Minnesota beat the Tampa Bay Lightning 1-0 Saturday night in the Wild’s first game without injured forward Zach Parise.

Jared Spurgeon scored the lone goal for Minnesota, which lost Parise for at least a week due to a sprained MCL. Dubnyk posted his seventh shutout in 51 games for the Wild, who won for the sixth time in seven home games.

Tampa Bay, the defending Eastern Conference champion, has been without its usual explosive offense in a 2-5-1 stretch. The Lightning have scored one goal or fewer in six of the past eight games. Ben Bishop made 24 saves but lost his fifth straight game.
