Morning Line

We play [Saturday], we play very soon here and it’s the biggest game of the year, so we absolutely can’t afford to waste any time analyzing [the 6-1 loss]. We played a very good game against an LA team [Tuesday] and we need to play that style tomorrow.

“We have no choice. We have a Game 7 tomorrow. This is where you show what you’re made of, this is what careers are made on and these are opportunities that you don’t get very often. It’s an absolute opportunity. It’s a Game 7 to get to the playoffs.”

-Matt Cullen of the Minnesota Wild after losing to Edmonton 6-1 last night. More on the Wild from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants.

How bad did things get after the Wild gave up six goals on the first 11 shots?

A sickened Craig Leipold, the Wild owner, left his center-ice suite and watched much of the third period from General Manager Chuck Fletcher’s press-box booth.

This is not a normal occurrence. Leipold, who has one of the NHL’s highest payrolls and doled out $196 million in long-term contracts for Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, could be seen pacing and shaking his head in disgust. Fletcher, incidentally, didn’t appear to be in the booth.

@Paul - Ha ha! Love it. And wasn’t Leipold one of the biggest (and hypocritical) hard liners during the lock out? I would get a perverted kick out of them not making the playoffs.
