Dubnyk stopped 23 of 28 shots in Friday's 5-4 overtime loss to the Devils.
Handed a 4-1 lead midway through the second period, Dubnyk couldn't make it stick, eventually committing a costly turnover in his own end that directly led to Nico Hischier's OT winner. The veteran netminder is now 1-4-2 through seven starts in February with a 3.26 GAA and .884 save percentage, and the Wild may have little choice but to give Alex Stalock more work until Dubnyk can turn things around.
Dubnyk will guard the home goal Friday against the Devils, Jessi Pierce of The Athletic reports.
Dubnyk surrendered four goals in the final two periods of Tuesday's game against the Flyers to go home with a loss for the fifth time in the last six games. While some of his record troubles have come due to a lack of offensive support, that certainly wasn't the case versus Philadelphia. Dubnyk will look to bounce back Friday against a Devils team averaging just two goals over eight February contests.
Dubnyk allowed five goals on 26 shots in a 5-4 loss to the Flyers on Tuesday.
The Wild led 3-1 after the first period and then 4-3 early in the third, but still, Dubnyk couldn't hold the lead. He gave up two goals to the Flyers' power play, including the game-winner. This obviously wasn't the turnaround performance Dubnyk owners were hoping for. In the last five games, he is 1-3-1 with an .885 save percentage. Dubnyk still possesses a respectable 2.63 GAA and .911 save percentage this season, but his record has dropped to 21-20-4, giving him the most losses in the league in 2018-19.
Dubnyk will guard the cage against the Flyers at home Tuesday, John Shipley of the Pioneer Press reports.
Dubnyk has struggled for wins of late, as he is 1-3-3 in his last five outings, despite a decent .910 save percentage. The 32-year-old should hit the 60-game mark for the fourth consecutive season and could push for 30 wins if he can get some offensive support.
Dubnyk stopped 32 of 34 shots in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Islanders.
Having posted a 1-3-1 record in five starts since the All-Star break, Dubnyk has not been himself of late. The Wild netminder had won three straight going into the break but has been unable to string wins together since teams reconvened. Minnesota next plays Tuesday, at home against the Flyers. The team has not yet announced a starting goaltender for that game.
