ST. Matt Bartkowski Jersey . PAUL, Minn. -- Though the Minnesota Wild havent been scoring much this season, theyve limited opponents scoring opportunities better than any team in the NHL. They overwhelmed the Dallas Stars on both ends of the rink on Saturday night. Rookies Justin Fontaine and Mathew Dumba both scored their first NHL goals and Josh Harding made 18 saves for his second straight win as the Wild beat the Stars 5-1. The Wild came in giving up a league-low 22.0 shots per game, and they kept the pressure off Harding, who was filling in for injured starter Niklas Backstrom. Two nights after stopping 14 of 15 shots in a 2-1 win over Winnipeg, Harding faced only 19 shots as the Wild controlled play from the opening faceoff. "Theyre doing a nice job on the other end of the rink," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. "Theyve got a lot of good puck possession and theyre winning the battle of the possession clock in their own end." Minnesota also blocked 10 shots and had 15 takeaways -- compared to just three for the Stars -- as they repeatedly frustrated Dallas attempts to sustain any offensive momentum. "Weve talked about how we want to be a puck-possession team and how defending is a lot easier when you have the puck," Wild coach Mike Yeo said. "I like the way that we defend. I like the structure that we have. But, again, wed much rather force them to defend than put ourselves in that position." Dallas also was playing with its backup goalie as starter Kari Lehtonen was injured in a 4-1 win at Winnipeg on Friday. His replacement, Dan Ellis, struggled with Minnesotas offensive barrage, allowing five goals on 36 shots to a team that had scored just nine goals in four previous games. 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. Matt Cooke scooped up a loose puck off a Stars turnover in the high slot and fed it to Fontaine, who fell to his knees but feathered a back-hander past Ellis. "Thats a rolling back-hander. I was just trying to throw it on the net." Fontaine said. "Those are tricky they say for the goaltenders. Im just glad it went in." Cooke doubled the lead midway through the first, beating Ellis on a wrap-around after stealing the puck from defenceman Alex Goligoski behind the net off a faceoff. "We kind of gave them a two-goal lead there, just sloppy plays," Goligoski said. We never really got going after that. We kind of got outplayed all over the rink. ... We got off on the wrong foot tonight and it just kind of spiraled from there." Minnesota missed a couple of chances to expand its lead, as Kyle Brodziak and Cooke each came away empty on short-handed breakaways during a nearly four-minute Dallas power play. But the Wild broke through with two goals in two minutes midway through the second period to take a 4-0 lead. Dumba, the seventh overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, scored his first career goal on a Minnesota power play, beating Ellis with a wrist shot from the left faceoff circle off a pass from Dany Heatley. Nino Niederreiter then scored off a wide-angle shot that handcuffed Ellis at the left post. Dallas countered with a power-play goal by Jordie Benn to cut the deficit to 4-1 at 12:40 of the second period, but Zach Parise scored a power-play goal for the Wild late in the third period to restore the four-goal cushion and keep the Stars at arms length. "What I liked is how we executed in the third period," Yeo said. "We werent just chipping pucks out, chipping pucks in, we were still making tape-to-tape plays. We were still executing. When we were defending, we werent just trying to be in good position. We were getting after them. We were being aggressive from good position." NOTES: Backstrom and Lehtonen are both considered day-to-day with their injuries. ... Minnesota has outshot its opponents in all five games this season, while the Stars have been outshot in all four of their games. Minnesota has a 67-25 shot advantage in the second period. ... Dallas F Shawn Horcoff played in his 800th NHL game. ... Harding is 24-9-2 in his career at Xcel Energy Center and has won six of his last seven home starts. ... Alex Chiasson, who assisted on Benns goal, has a point in every game this season. Mason Raymond Jersey . PAUL, Minn. Brandon Bollig Jersey . The Philadelphia Eagles acquired running back Darren Sproles from the New Orleans Saints for a fifth-round draft pick on Tuesday. . "I dont know where we would be without him," McClendon said. "Hes done a tremendous job for us and (Wednesday) was no different." Logan Morrison drove in two runs in Seattles big sixth inning, Young pitched seven strong innings and the Mariners beat the Houston Astros 5-2 to complete a three-game sweep.A Jets winger flying high, strong Senators goaltending and a Bruins defenceman stepping up when needed; lineup news, Fantasy tips and more in Scott Cullen’s Statistically Speaking. HEROES Evander Kane – The Jets left winger returned to action last week and delivered his best game of the season last night against Pittsburgh. He notched a Gordie Howe Hat Trick (goal, assist, fight against Penguins D Simon Despres), and generated 13 shot attempts, with six shots on goal in Winnipeg’s 4-3 shootout loss to Pittsburgh. Craig Anderson – The Ottawa goaltender moved into the league lead with a .948 save percentage following his 35-save shutout against Minnesota. It was the fourth time this season that the Wild, who have a 7-5 record, have lost a game while outshooting their opponent by double digits. Dougie Hamilton – Taking on a bigger role on the injury-ravaged Boston blueline, Hamilton led the Bruins to a 5-2 win over Edmonton, tallying a goal and two assists. Hamilton has 10 points in 15 games this season, playing a career-high 22:51 per game, and his 57.2% Corsi is best among Boston’s regulars on the blueline (minimum 100 5-on-5minutes). Bruins Blueline Regulars BRUINS D CORSI% CORSIREL% Dougie Hamilton 57.2% +4.3% Zdeno Chara 56.7% +2.6% Torey Krug 54.3% +1.6% Dennis Seidenberg 53.9% -0.8% Adam McQuaid 50.5% -6.3% ZEROES Senators Second Line – It was during a 3-0 win, so there are likely some score effects involved, but Ottawa’s line of LW Milan Michalek, C Mika Zibanejad and RW Alex Chiasson was locked in its own end against Minnesota. Michalek(1 shot attempts for, 13 against, 7.1%) was worst of the bunch, followed by Zibanejad (1 for, 12 against, 7.7%) and Chiasson (2 for, 11 against, 15.4%). Zibanejad, Michalek and fellow Sens forwards David Legwand and Mark Stone did not register a single shot attempt between them. Stars Not Shining – Veteran C Shawn Horcoff and LW Erik Cole were boxed into their own zone against Nashville, with Horcoff (5 for, 23 against, 17.9%) and Cole (4 for, 18 against, 18.2%) running into the most trouble when matched against the Predators’ top line of C Mike Ribeiro, LW Filip Forsberg and RW James Neal. Mikael Granlund – Despite starting 87.5% of his even-strength shifts in the offensive zone at Ottawa, the Wild centre was held without a single shot attempt in 19:30 of ice time. SHORT SHIFTS Blues RW Vladimir Tarasenko and LW Jaden Schwartz each had a goal and an assist at New Jersey. Tarasenko now has eight goals and 11 points in the past six games…Bruins C Carl Soderberg and RW Loui Eriksson and RW Reilly Smith each had a goal and an assist in a 5-2 win over Edmonton. Soderberg is Boston’s leading scorer, with 12 points in 15 games…Penguins agitator Steve Downie had a goal and an assist in 8:52 of ice time and C Brandon Sutter had a goal and two assists in a 4-3 shootout win at Winnipeg…Senators rookie LW Mike Hoffman had a goal and an assist in a 3-0 win over Minnesota. Hoffman’s 12.82 shots per 60 minutes is far-and-away best on the Sens. With a goal and an assist at Colorado, Maple Leafs RW Phil Kessel is within one point of Penguins C Sidney Crosby and Flyers RW Jakub Voracek for the league scoring lead…Islanders G Chad Johnson stopped 28 of 29 shots in a 2-1 shootout win at Los Angeles…Canucks G Ryan Miller stopped 34 of 36 shots in a 3-2 win at San Jose…Kings LW Marian Gaborik was held without a shot attempt in 16:47 vs. the Islanders. LINEUP NEED TO KNOW Justin Williams – Los Angeles’ possession ace is dealing with an eye injury, so the Kings inserted Jordan Nolan to the top line, with Anze Kopitar and Marian Gaborik, against the Islanders. Paul Stastny – Returned to the Blues lineup for his first game in three weeks and didn’t register a shot attempt in 15:37 of ice time, playing mostly with Alexander Steen and Joakim Lindstrom, at New Jersey. Curtis Glencross Jersey. Morgan Rielly – The second-year rearguard was a healthy scratch in Colorado Thursday, making room for rookie Stuart Percy in the lineup. Jake Gardiner – The Maple Leafs defenceman suffered a bone bruise on his knee after blocking a shot, and was forced to leave after playing 2:55 at Colorado. As a result, Dion Phaneuf played 31:07, his most in a regular-season game since January 26, 2013. Roman Polak played 28:12, his highest time on ice since January 2, 2009. Daniel Winnik – A recent addition to Toronto’s top line, Winnik lasted one shift at Colorado before falling awkwardly after a neutral zone hit and requiring a stretcher to leave the ice. With Winnik out, the Leafs gave Leo Komaro and Richard Panik opportunities to play with Kessel and Nazem Kadri. Ryane Clowe – The Devils winger left Thursday night’s game against St. Louis with an injury and the Devils aren’t providing additional information. If Clowe is out for some time, the Devils may have to dip into their farm system, having already promoted wingers Steve Bernier and Mike Sislo. Adam Henrique – Tied for the Devils’ scoring lead, with nine points in 12 games, Henrique is out with a lower-body injury. Ales Hemsky – Played a season-high 18:34 for the Stars as Dallas shuffled up lines, moving Patrick Eaves to the top line with Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, while Hemsky skated with Jason Spezza and Valeri Nichushkin. Avalanche Deployment - It may be a mere one-game statistical oddity, but the Avalanche started fourth-liners Marc-Andre Cliche, Cody McLeod and Maxime Talbot in the offensive zone for more than 60% of their shifts against the Maple Leafs, while Nathan MacKinnon, Gabriel Landeskog and Jarome Iginla started 27.2% of their even-strength shifts in the offensive zone. That doesn’t seem to be optimal asset utilization. FIRSTS Cedric Paquette – The Lightning rookie centre scored the first two goals of his career in a 5-2 win over Calgary. Iiro Pakarinen – The 23-year-old Oilers right winger played in his first NHL game, after putting up eight points in seven AHL games, and played all of 5:50 in Boston. A seventh-round pick of the Panthers in 2011, Pakarinen was signed by the Oilers as a free agent in the summer, after scoring 20 goals and 30 points in 60 games for HIFK of the Finnish League last season. Keith Kinkaid – The 25-year-old out of Union College made his NHL debut, playing 10 minutes in relief of Cory Schneider against St. Louis. The Devils have sent vet Scott Clemmensen to the AHL and are giving Kinkaid, who had a .931 save percentage in his first six games of the season for Albany (AHL), a shot at the backup role. Mike Sislo – An undrafted free agent out of the University of New Hampshire, Sislo has played three-plus years in the AHL for the Devils and registered his first career NHL point, in his 15th career game, with an assist against St. Louis Thursday. FANTASY FOCUS A few players in action tonight that you may want in your lineup: Tom Wilson – He’s known for his toughness, but the second-year winger has three points in the past two games and is playing more for the Capitals, with a recent move to the top line, with Alex Ovechkin and Nicklas Backstrom, a particularly enticing opportunity. Elias Lindholm – The second-year Hurricanes centre is starting to produce, with five points in the past three games, and he’s played more than 16 minutes in four of the past five games. Tomas Tatar – Hasn’t recorded an assist yet this season, and had only one goal through nine games, but has lit the lamp three times in the past four games, splitting time between lines with Pavel Datsyuk and Justin Abdelkader or Riley Sheahan and Gustav Nyquist.
