ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Matt Murray stopped 23 shots for his first career NHL shutout, and Dallas scored two short-handed goals to snap a three-game losing streak with a 4-0 win at Minnesota on Monday night.
Murray earned his second NHL victory in his fourth career game. The undrafted 25-year-old from Alberta played five years of college hockey at the University of Massachusetts Amherst, winning a national championship in 2021.
Tyler Seguin and Roope Hintz each had a goal and an assist for Dallas.
The Stars' fourth-best in the NHL penalty kill (85%) was perfect on six Wild power-play opportunities.

Including an 8-3 victory on Nov. 12, Dallas (23-11-5) has scored nine special-teams goals in two contests against Minnesota (17-18-4) this season.
Marc-Andre Fleury made 16 saves but missed in his first chance to pass Patrick Roy for sole possession of second place on the NHL's career wins list. Fleury had tied Roy with his 551st victory Saturday at Columbus.
With the Wild on the power play, Hintz one-timed a no-look, backhanded pass from Seguin past Fleury at 10:44 mark of the first period. Hintz has recorded 14 points in his past nine games against Minnesota and leads the Stars with 16 goals.
Radek Faksa added a second short-handed goal 8:22 into the third. It was Dallas' ninth short-handed goal of the season, tried for second in the league. Jason Robertson added the final goal.
After Hintz's score, the Stars killed Minnesota's 47-second, 5-on-3 advantage and emerged from the first leading 1-0 despite being outshot 13-4.
Early in the third, Seguin's wrist shot from the right point snuck under Fleury's right arm pit and was initially ruled a no-goal. But the video goal judge overturned the call, and it was 2-0 just 1:28 into the final period.
Injury-plagued Minnesota did get Marcus Foligno back after a two-game absence. Goalie Filip Gustavsson, defensemen Jonas Brodin and Jared Spurgeon, and forwards Kirill Kaprizov and Vinni Lettieri all remained unavailable Monday.
