Dubnyk, Wild blank Sabres 4-0

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Devan Dubnyk made 38 saves for his second straight shutout and the Minnesota Wild beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-0 on Thursday night.

Ryan Suter had a goal and an assist, and Joel Ericsson Ek, Jason Zucker and Mikko Koivu also scored. The Wild went 2-1-1 on a four-game road trip to improve to 5-2-1.

Anders Nillson made 18 saves in his second straight start for the Sabres. They have lost four in a row.

Minnesota built a two-goal lead in the first period, but Buffalo controlled the action in the second. Dubnyk made 19 saves, including 15 in the first 6:11 of the period, and the Wild killed two penalties.

Suter scored his third goal of the season 2:58 into the third period, sending a wobbly wrist shot from the right circle over Nillson's glove. Koivu added an empty-net goal with 1:09 left.
