ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Kaapo Kahkonen made 26 saves to notch his first career shutout for the Minnesota Wild in a 2-0 victory over Vegas.

That stopped the Golden Knights' six-game winning streak. Kahkonen won his seventh consecutive start, a franchise rookie goalie record.

The 24-year-old native of Finland has allowed only 10 goals over his seven-game streak.

Kevin Fiala and Jonas Brodin scored for the Wild. Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 19 shots for the West Division-leading Golden Knights.

The teams play again on Wednesday.
