ST. PAUL, Minnesota (AP) -- Justin Fontaine had a goal and two assists, and linemate Thomas Vanek also scored as the Minnesota Wild breezed by the St. Louis Blues with a 6-3 victory on Saturday.

Chris Stewart, Zach Parise, Jonas Brodin and Mikko Koivu contributed goals, too, and Charlie Coyle and Ryan Suter each had two assists for the Wild, who improved to an NHL-best 22-6-2 since trading for goalie Devan Dubnyk on Jan. 14.

Dubnyk, acquired from Arizona for a third-round draft pick, has started all 30 of those games. He made 26 saves to beat the Blues on a second straight weekend.

Vladimir Tarasenko and Jaden Schwartz each had a goal and an assist and Paul Stastny scored late for the Blues, who stayed three points behind Anaheim for first place in the Western Conference. The Blues have played one fewer game.

CANUCKS 4, KINGS 1

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Radim Vrbata set up the equalizer by Nick Bonino in the second period and scored the go-ahead goal during a 5-on-3 power play in the third, leading Vancouver over Los Angeles.

Eddie Lack made 25 saves for Vancouver. The Kings, who have 11 games left, could have tied Vancouver for second place in the Pacific Division with a regulation win.

Daniel Sedin and Bo Horvath scored empty-net goals in the final minute.

Vrbata put the Canucks ahead 2-1 at 4:31 of the third with his 27th goal, playing the puck off the end boards after a long slap shot by Alex Edler and putting it past Jonathan Quick while he was out of position. Quick finished with 38 saves.

BLUE JACKETS 3, FLAMES 2, OT

CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -- Rene Bourque scored his second of the game at 4:01 of overtime to give Columbus a win over Calgary.

With prolonged pressure in the Flames end, Kevin Connauton's shot was stopped but Bourque slipped the rebound past Karri Ramo's outstretched pad.

Artem Anisimov also scored for Columbus, which has won six of seven overall including its first sweep of Western Canada.

Sean Monahan and Jiri Hudler scored for Calgary. The Flames remain in third place in the Pacific Division, two points back of Vancouver and two points up on Los Angeles. The Canucks and Kings hold a game in hand.
