The Minnesota Wild downed Chicago 3-0 Tuesday night to earn their 4th straight win.  Minnesota scored 2 first period goals and added 1 in the 2nd period.  Mikko Koivu and Jason Zucker each scored a goal in the first period and Mikael Granlund scored in the 2nd period for Minnesota.

Devin Dubnyk had 24 saves to earn the shutout in net as Minnesota out-shot Chicago 43-24.  The Wild improve to 24-20-6 and now have 54 points.  The Wild are tied for 10th place in the Western Conference but remain 5 points out of the final playoff spots in the West.  Minnesota will host Colorado Saturday night at 7pm, pregame on WJON at 6:45.

The Wild may play the rest of the season without left wing Matt Cooke.  Cooke has what the Wild are calling a lower body injury.
