ST. Wholesale Athletics Jerseys . PAUL, Minn. -- Josh Harding wasnt considered the Minnesota Wilds top goaltender entering the season. Hes currently the leagues best at making saves. Harding stopped 19 shots for his second shutout of the season and the Wild beat the New Jersey Devils 4-0 Sunday night. Mikael Granlund, Torrey Mitchell, Dany Heatley and Jason Pominville scored for the Wild, who have won five of six. Nino Niederreiter had three assists. Harding improved to 7-2-1 while lowering his goals-against average to 1.11 and increasing his save percentage to .950. "The guys are making it easy. Its never about one player. We win as a team and we lose as a team like we always say. This was another team win. Everybody contributed and pulled their weight," he said. Niklas Backstrom was expected to see the bulk of the action this season for the Wild. However, he went down with a leg injury in the teams third game and hasnt seen much action since, in large part because of Hardings stellar start. "Its unbelievable," Niederreiter said. "Every game hes played hes kept us in the game. Hes been playing phenomenal for us." Cory Schneider, back after missing three games with a sore groin, finished with 16 saves for New Jersey. The Devils, 28th in league scoring at 1.86 goals per game, were blanked for the second straight night and fourth time in 14 games. "Its frustrating to a point, but youve just got to keep plugging away. Everythings not going to go your way and you have to just keep fighting through it," centre Stephen Gionta said. Looking to forget about Saturdays 1-0 home loss to Philadelphia when it managed just 14 shots, New Jersey dominated early with six shots on goal in the opening 5 minutes. However, the Devils went nearly 8 minutes before their next shot, including two power-play opportunities. "Hards made some good saves. It kept us in the game," said Granlund, who gave Minnesota a 1-0 lead with 6:40 left in the first period. Pominvilles shot from the left circle was saved by Schneider, and a bad-angle rebound attempt by Niederreiter trickled out to the slot where Granlund was alone for his first goal of the year to go along with a team-leading 10 assists. "Im glad he got that goal tonight," said coach Mike Yeo. "Hes had a lot of chances and hes been setting up a lot of plays, but its good for him to get that off his back. Mitchells first goal of the season put Minnesota up 2-0 at 7:35 of the second. Schneider got a piece of Zach Parises shot from below the right circle, but the puck fluttered to the crease where four players were crashing the net and Mitchell deflected the puck across the line. Parise, who had 194 goals and 410 points with the Devils, signed a 13-year, $98 million contract with the Wild on July 4, 2012, and was playing against his former team for the first time. The teams did not meet last year because of the NHL lockout-shortened schedule. "As a player you always hate practicing and scrimmaging against your own team. Thats what it felt like for me tonight the whole game," Parise said. Heatley scored his first non-empty-net goal of the season early in the third, redirecting Keith Ballards shot behind Schneider. Pominville added an empty-netter with 2:25 to play, his sixth goal in the past four games. New Jersey defenceman Jon Merrill left his first NHL game after sliding hard into the boards in the first period. Merrill was skating into the corner to the right of Schneider when he was tripped up by Mitchell. He went into the boards face-first, and it looked as if he sustained at least one cut on his face. With blood on the ice, Merrill looked wobbly as he was helped to the locker room. Coach Peter DeBoer said he had lacerations on his face and the team was conducting some tests. "Thats tough," DeBoer said. "We were looking forward to seeing him play. Hes earned the opportunity to get up here. So you never like to see an injury like that at any point, but particularly on his second or third shift in the NHL." NOTES: Minnesota C Charlie Coyle missed the game after aggravating a sprained knee Friday. He had missed the previous 11 games with the injury, and is considered day-to-day. To replace Coyle, the Wild recalled F Carson McMillan from AHL Iowa. ... New Jersey forwards Patrik Elias (upper body) and Travis Zajac (right ankle) missed their second straight games. ...

Logano won the pole at 203.949 mph Friday in his No. 22 Ford, breaking the track record set by Marcos Ambrose last year. Ambroses mark of 203.241 came on the first Sprint Cup weekend on a newly paved surface at MIS. His record lasted 14 months. Loganos speed was the ninth-highest by a NASCAR pole winner -- and the fastest since Bill Elliott set the record of 212.809 at Talladega on April 30, 1987. "I dont know how fast it is, but it feels freaking fast," Logano said. Kurt Busch qualified second, and points leader Jimmie Johnson was third. Logano is 16th in the Cup standings, and this is his first pole of the year. He could use a good showing this weekend as he tries to make a final push to reach the Chase for the Sprint Cup. Logano is 27 points behind 10th-place Martin Truex Jr., and he hasnt won a race this season. But a victory at Michigan could change everything, vaulting him closer to Chase position on points and boosting his chances at a wild card. There are four races left before the Chase. "Were 27 points out. That doesnt sound like a lot, but the amount of cars that are in between us is a lot," Logano said. "Were one bad race from saying, Were out. So weve got to make the most out of these four." Its the sixth career pole for the 23-year-old Logano. Hes coming off three consecutive top-10 finishes, although he hasnt won in over a year. Logano finished ninth at Michigan in June. Bussch is in 11th place in the standings, so his solid starting position comes at a good time for him. Cheap Athletics Jerseys. Busch started second in this years earlier race at MIS, but he finished 35th. "Its really neat to overlay exactly what we did here in June, when we were outside pole, and try to improve on that," Busch said. "The pace today was just quick. It was just an extreme pace that the qualifying simulations were showing us. I shot for a 35.35 (seconds) in my mind for a lap time and ran a 35.347. I thought it would be good enough for the pole, but Logano just hit it perfectly." Despite the high speeds, Busch said his ride was pretty smooth. "When your car is good, its very stable," Busch said. "When you run 203 mph, and youre kicking yourself a little bit like I am for just going in a little too light, thats just because the car was stable. So 203 mph is not a problem. "Thats what Dave Ferroni, my PR guy, asked. He said, Is that the fastest youve ever gone around a track in a stock car, average speed-wise? And I said, Unbelievable. At 203 mph it didnt feel like it." Mark Martin qualified fourth, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. was seventh. Defending Cup champion Brad Keselowski was ninth. Johnson has never won in 23 Cup races at Michigan. "Of course we wanted to be a little bit better, but we had a very smooth and clean practice session made some good changes to the car and found speed as the session went on," Johnson said. "Came close to getting another pole during qualifying, so all in all just really good." ' ' '
