Late Evening Line

Or I guess you could call it the Early Morning Line too.

“We flat-out stink the last two months. We stink.  I’m concerned about the fact that we come into games and we don’t have enough guys when we should have absolute desperation in our game.”

“We’re 28th in the league in offense and you look at the goals that they scored: They have a point shot and a deflection, they have a point shot and rebound, 5-on-3 is a point shot and a rebound. And we still want to either skate the puck into the net or pass the puck six times to get the puck into the net.

“You’d think that we would look at a team that skilled and has scored as many goals and say, ‘Wow, they score goals like that, that might be a good idea for us to try it.’ Or we might say, ‘We we don’t have that much skill, it might be a good idea for us to do that,’ yet it’s tough to get that across right now.”

-Minnesota head coach Mike Yeo after losing to Vancouver.  More from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants.
