Hellebuyck will start in goal for Sunday's showdown with the Wild.

Hellebuyck will start his 16th consecutive game Sunday, which speaks more to Winnipeg's lack of goalie depth than it does to Hellebuyck's prowess in the net. As mediocre as the Michigan native's stats have been this season, Michael Hutchinson's have been significantly worse, and Ondrej Pavelec is still at least a week away from returning from a knee injury. Hellebuyck will try for a win against a struggling Minnesota squad that is averaging just 2.11 goals per game in March.
