Wild vs. Stars post-game

Disastrous 1:31 of play destroys Wild in 4-0 loss to Dallas

Written by Derek Felska | 11 March 2011

Do you remember the old kids song, The Cat Came Back? "Old Mr. Johnson had problems of his own, he had a yellow cat that wouldn't leave him alone, he tried and he tried to give the cat away, he gave it to a little man going far away, but the cat came back the very next day" which reminds me a lot of Minnesota's issues with consistency of effort. Whenever the team seems to get over its problems, then those issues return and the team struggles its way through a losing streak. The struggle now is of course at the worst time and threatens to put Minnesota out of the playoffs. A woeful effort last night in Nashville saw Minnesota fall 4-0 to the Predators who leapfrogged the Wild in the standings. It is as though the the team has just been teasing us; being almost good enough but not quite. Yet as I think about it most Wild fans felt this is about where the Wild would be. No one predicted Minnesota to be the worst in the Western Conference, but not good enough to be in the playoff picture so in essence that "cat" seems to have returned as well. Can Minnesota prove everyone wrong and scratch and claw their way back into the post-season? Its possible, but Minnesota is going to have to reverse its fortunes in a hurry.

The Wild travel to Dallas, who decided not to move coveted center Brad Richards at the trade deadline and instead made a pre-deadline deal with Pittsburgh for Alex Goligoski by giving up promising youngster James Neal and Matt Niskanen. Minnesota have a miserable record in Dallas, and the Wild must look at nearly every game as a must-win, as they feel compelled to do so during regulation so as not to surrender any extra points to its competitors. That might be asking a lot for a team that has struggled considerably without captain Mikko Koivu in the lineup and not having Cal Clutterbuck deprives the team of some much-needed grit. The Wild are hoping the 'Cap' or even the 'Cal' comes back so they can get back to their winning ways. Will the Stars keep Minnesota's slide going or will the team answer back from a poor effort the night before? (click on the link for the rest of the article)

Another complete disaster of a game for the Wild.
