Devan Dubnyk was playing the blame game Friday night in Edmonton. And he was pointing the finger squarely at himself.
The Minnesota Wild goalie didn't make it out of the first period's first nine minutes, ceding three goals on just six shots in his team's 7-2 loss to the Oilers. It was their seventh defeat in 10 games, one that dropped them to 15-12-2 and into fifth place in the Central Division.
Dubnyk and Minnesota try to correct the recent skid Tuesday night when they begin a four-game homestand against the Montreal Canadiens at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn.
