The Streak Continues for the Wild
(St. Paul, MN) -- Erik Haula had a goal and an assist as the Wild skated to a 3-1 win over the Dallas Stars last night at the Excel Energy Center.
Ryan Suter and Jared Spurgeon also lit the lamp for Minnesota, which has earned at least a point in seven straight games. Darcy Kuemper made 34 saves.
With the win, the Wild (38-13-6) kept alive its streak of not losing consecutive games since they lost to Buffalo and Colorado the first week of November.
Cody Eakin had the only goal of the night for Dallas, which lost for the seventh time in eight tries. Kari Lehtonen stopped 23 shots in defeat.
Minnesota now has 82 points, and is 7 points ahead of second place Chicago (75). The home stand continues this Saturday night when Nashville comes to St. Paul for a 7 PM start.
