(St. Paul, Minnesota-AP) -- Dwayne Roloson stopped 24 shots and Wes Walz scored twice as Minnesota blanked St. Louis 4-to-0.
Roloson had been winless in his last four starts before posting his third shutout of the season. He faced just 13 shots in the final two periods while helping the Wild drop the Blues to 0-6-and-1 in their last seven games.
Walz opened the scoring four-40 into the game, and beat Reinhard Divis on a penalty shot four minutes into the final period. Divis replaced Chris Osgood, who allowed three goals on
nine shots in 26 minutes.
Sergei Zholtok and Pascal Dupuis also scored as the Wild won for only the fourth time in their last 21 games.
The Blues have scored just eleven times in their last nine contests.
