St. Paul, MN, United States (4E Sports) - Zach Parise scored twice while Devan Dubnyk stopped 30 shots as the Minnesota Wild defeated the St. Louis Blues, 4-1, in Sunday's Game 6 to clinch the Western Conference First Round series at Xcel Energy Center.

With the victory, the Wild advanced to the second round where they will face the Chicago Blackhawks for the third consecutive time in the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

It was the first time in franchise history that the Wild clinched a series on home ice.

T.J. Oshie scored the lone goal while Jake Allen tallied 11 saves for the Central Division-champion Blues, who have now been eliminated in the first round of the playoffs in three straight seasons. Brian Elliott stopped six shots in relief of Allen.

Parise put the Wild ahead with a shorthanded goal in the first period before Justin Fontaine made it 2-0 at 11:19 of the second by sliding soft shot through Allen's five-hole for his first goal of the series.

St. Louis scored late in the second behind Oshie , who fired a quick shot that bounced off Dubnyk's arm and in with 3.4 seconds remaining to make it 2-1

However, Parise scored again early in the third, to help stop a comeback bid by the Blues, capping a 2-on-1 break by tapping in a rebound of a Jason Pominville shot off the rush at 1:01 of the third.

Wild forward Nino Niederreiter scored an empty-net goal with 1:52 remaining.
