Ellis struggles in Stars' loss to Wild
OCT 12, 2013 10:00p ET
Minnesota came in giving up a league-low 22.0 shots per game, and kept the pressure off Harding, who was filling in for injured starter Niklas Backstrom.
Dallas' Dan Ellis, starting for injured starter Kari Lehtonen, allowed five goals on 36 shots.
The Wild jumped ahead with the fastest goal to start a game in team history, as Fontaine put Minnesota on the board just 12 seconds in.
Cooke doubled the lead midway through the first, beating Ellis on a wrap-around after stealing the puck from defenseman Alex Goligoski behind the net off a faceoff.
