Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants at the Star Tribune,
How dramatic and fast this freefall has been.
The best team in the NHL (at least, in terms of points) for three weeks, a team once 20-7-3 overall, a team once the best road team in the NHL ... is now clinging to a playoff spot by three precious points over 9th-place Colorado because of a 1-7-3 face-first stumble.
Most amazing what this slide has accomplished? The Wild ushered in the midway point ONE POINT ahead of last year’s pace. That’s absolutely unbelievable when you consider where the Wild was one month ago.
The Wild’s at a fragile juncture and will spend the next three days in the Banff National Park practicing, and bonding in a desperate search for 1) its game and 2) its need for each other.
