Seven Wild players stepped up and all seven failed to get the puck past Washington Capitals goalie Darcy Keumper, as Minnesota fell to a 3-2 shootout defeat in D.C.

John Carlson's seventh-round attempt was the lone successful shot in the entire shootout as the Wild dropped their second straight game, and their fourth in the last five games.

It had started promisingly for Minnesota, with Marco Rossi pinging the top corner of the Washington net to give the Wild a 1-0 lead just 2:17 into the game.

Washington wouldn't let the Wild out of the first period with the lead however, with Tom Wilson and Dylan Storme scoring eight minutes apart to give the home side the advantage.

After a scoreless second period, Ryan Hartman bagged the equalizer just 1:16 into the final period off a breakaway. It was Hartman's fifth goal of the season, drawing even with Joel Eriksson Ek for the team lead.

Marcus Johansson raced the clock but couldn't beat Washington goalie Darcy Keumper for a last second overtime goal. Keumper made fives saves in the extra period to send the game to a shootout.

Keumper continued stonewalling the Wild in the shootout, stopping seven shots while John Carlson's successful attempt in the seventh round gave the Capitals the win.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 30 of 32 shots in the Wild
