On Devan Dubnyk Being Pulled

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

Devan Dubnyk saw the bench so quickly during Sunday’s nationally televised game against the Chicago Blackhawks, he probably didn’t need to shower before the Wild’s flight to Washington.

For the first time this season, the No. 1 goalie got an early exit from a hockey game after allowing goals on Chicago’s first two shots before an eventual 4-2 loss in the final regular-season meeting against the nemesis Blackhawks at United Center.

“You follow a goalie for 68 games, you sort of know his traits and his trends,” coach Bruce Boudreau said. “He didn’t look like he was following the puck well. … I just thought he didn’t have it tonight.”...

Other than two planned pulls in the final game of the regular season before the playoffs, this was the third time in Dubnyk’s 157-start Wild career that he was yanked.

“I always want to stay in and want to battle,” Dubnyk said. “That’s completely up to him to decide what he wants to do. If he didn’t think I was ready or he wants a spark, he’s the coach and my job is to be ready to stay in there and battle if I need to.”
