NHL: Minnesota 2, Vancouver 0

March 19, 2012 at 11:52 PM

ST. PAUL, Minn., March 20 (UPI) -- Josh Harding posted his second shutout of the season Monday, turning aside 33 shots for Minnesota in the Wild's 2-0 victory over Vancouver.

Harding needed to come up big in the third period, as the Canucks outshot Minnesota 10-4 -- but he withstood an extra attacker in the final minute and completed his sixth career whitewash.

Erik Christensen scored in the first period and Kyle Brodziak added an empty-netter for the Wild, who won for only second time in 10 games.

Cory Schneider took the hard-luck loss for the Canucks, yielding just one tally on 33 shots.

Vancouver, seeded second in the Western Conference, lost for the fifth time in seven contests.
