Zucker Scores Twice in Wild's Win Against Islanders

The New York Islanders also need a nice win here after splitting their last eight games.

Thomas Whittle and his family are from Coyle's hometown of Weymouth, Mass., and have followed his career from the start.

The win snapped Minnesota's brief two-game skid (0-1-1) and got its three-game, five-day trip to NY off on a winning note.

The real issue is their is absolutely no accountability for the 15 games that the Wild have lost after either being tied or leading in the third period which has equates to 23 missed points in the standings.

Center Matt Cullen finished off a breakaway at 9:54 after he sneaked behind the Islanders defense and buried a Ryan Suter pass. Then Hickey wristed a shot from the left point and Anders Lee deflected it past Devan Dubnyk 1:57 into the second, giving Lee his 30th goal. Thomas Greiss stopped 45 shots on Friday and Jaroslav Halak made 50 saves in a 3-0 victory over the New York Rangers on Thursday. John Tavares leads NY with 30 goals, Josh Bailey has 47 assists and Anders Lee has 151 shots on goal.

The Isles had three power plays in the third period, including a six-on-four with their net empty for the final 1:23, but Dubnyk - who made 17 of his 32 saves in the third - and the Wild held them off.

Zucker gave the Wild their second lead of the game with a one-timer from the top of the right circle with 7:43 remaining. Ennis made it 4-2 with his eighth with 5:54 left.

Fritz pulled the Islanders within one with his first National Hockey League goal, beating Dubnyk high on the glove side from the right slot with 3½ minutes remaining in the middle period. All of this from a team that leads the National Hockey League with 214 goals allowed and is on pace to surrender 286 goals, which would be the most since the Colorado Avalanche gave up 288 during the 2010-11 season.

"It's a nice play, a hard tip for that guy to make and that's why you put pucks to the net", Dubnyk said.

The Minnesota Wild look for a spark of consistency here after splitting their last 10 games.

Joel Eriksson Ek got the scoring going for both teams with his second goal of the season. "That's how it is, sometimes it bounces your way".

The Minnesota Wild have allowed three or more goals in five of their last 10 games.

The Islanders tied it with 45 seconds left in the first as Johnston deflected Johnny Boychuk's slap shot from the right point past Dubnyk. Monday's matchup opens a three-game NY road trip for the Wild, who know their playoff hopes will be strengthened by "winning" the week against the Islanders, Rangers and New Jersey Devils. The Wild won the first meeting, 6-4 at home on October 26.

Minnesota has lost two in a row despite being at home and is on the road for this first time after a five-game homestand in which it went 2-3. Minnesota occupies the second wild card in the Western Conference despite dropping its second straight game Saturday when the visiting Anaheim Ducks posted a 3-2 shootout victory that took 11 rounds, the longest shootout in Wild history.
