Wild In A Funk

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

When I was walking around the locker room after the Wild’s latest road loss tonight and when I watched this game against the Rangers from the press box, I was thinking about how hockey looks so easy when you’re winning and looks so impossible when you’re losing.

The Wild’s in one of those awful, hard-to-get-out-of funks right now, (the type that plagued Todd Richards here and Mike Yeo’s first two years here) where it’s so hard to even remember what they did when they were winning routinely in November.

The players are frustrated. The coach is frustrated. Nobody seems to have any answers, which is scary when this Wild team is set to fall right back out of the top-8 again, maybe as soon as Monday if Phoenix wins in Buffalo and the Wild loses in Philly.

The words, “I don’t know,” came out of everybody’s mouth I talked to in the locker room tonight, from Zach Parise to Mikko Koivu.
