ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) _ Matt Dumba, Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund scored, Devan Dubnyk made 22 saves and the Minnesota Wild held on to beat the St. Louis Blues 3-1 on Sunday night for their fourth straight win.

Dumba scored for the second straight game in the second period and Niederreiter got his eighth goal about seven minutes later. Granlund added an empty-net goal.

Vladimir Tarasenko scored his 14th goal of the season for St. Louis. Jake Allen stopped 22 shots for the Blues, who had won five of their past seven games.

After a scoreless first period in which the Wild managed just six shots on goal, Dumba’s wrist shot put Minnesota ahead just 45 seconds into the second. The young defenseman brought the puck up the center of the ice and casually sent the puck on net, beating Allen high to the stick side.
