Minnesota Wild Need To Start Winning

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

This season is disintegrating right in front of our eyes. The Wild better find a gargantuan Band-Aid or tourniquet for that matter and stop the bleeding ASAP.

The Wild fell to 5-10-1 in the past 16 (so, it has accumulated 11 of a possible 32 points in the past 16 games) since the last time the team came to Winnipeg.

It looks like it’s ninth in the standings with 45 points. It’s not. It is in deep, deep trouble.

The Wild is four points behind seventh-place Colorado, which got clobbered tonight in Chicago. It is one point behind eighth-place Phoenix and creeping up from the rear is Dallas, which is one point behind.

All three of those teams have played three fewer games than the Wild. As we know in this league, because of the loser point, once you get behind in the second half, it is almost impossible to catch up.

And the Wild is lower in the standings than it actually appears by virtue of the games played category.
