Wild win 5th in a row 14 Dec 16

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Devan Dubnyk made 29 saves and five players scored a goal each as the Minnesota Wild won their fifth straight game, 5-1 over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday night.

Zach Parise, Erik Haula, Eric Staal, Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker scored for Minnesota, which has points in 10 of its last 11 games. Zucker added an assist, and Jason Pominville and Jonas Brodin each had two assists for the Wild.

Roberto Luongo’s regrettable history in Minnesota continued as he stopped 12 of 17 shots before being pulled midway through the third period. Luongo is 0-7 and has been pulled in four of his last seven games at the Xcel Energy Center.

James Reimer stopped all five shots he faced in relief of Luongo. Dylan McIlrath scored his first goal of the season for the Panthers, who have one win in their past six games.
