From The Minnesota Wild Side

from Sarah McLellan of the Star Tribune,

The Wild experienced how tough it is to play catch up after falling behind when completing a back-to-back in its recent loss to the Bruins.

And that’s the strategy the team will try to capitalize on against the Red Wings Saturday at Xcel Energy Center, as Detroit faced off against the Jets Friday in Winnipeg.

“We saw that in Boston,” goalie Devan Dubnyk said. “Obviously, they jumped on top of us early and it’s tough to do – those back-to-back games. If you give them a reason to stick around, everyone can find the energy and the will to play. But it’ll be up to us to get on them right away.”


Puck drop is just after 8:00pm ET tonight.

added 12:40pm, Wings are holding a very optional skate today, I will update if need be.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that. Your suggestions and critiques are welcome: wphoulihan@gmail.com
