ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Zach Parise scored twice and Devan Dubnyk made 22 saves to blank his original team, pushing the Minnesota Wild to the brink of the playoffs with a 3-0 victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night.

Playing for the first time in nearly three years without stalwart defenseman Ryan Suter, the Wild wrapped up their home schedule with a postseason-caliber performance punctuated by a staggering 21-3 shots advantage in the third period. Joel Eriksson Ek added an empty-net goal as the Wild finished 27-6-8 at Xcel Energy Center, currently the second-best home record in the NHL.
