The thing about winning is that sometimes there is bad news that comes along with it. While the Wild beat the Oilers, they struggled to capitalize on mistake after mistake, and let a defeated team earn a point off of them. Now, they face the Detroit Red Wings, a team that isn't going to make many mistakes and isn't going to miss the chance to take advantage of the Wild's mistakes.
When asked about the Wings after the Oilers game, coach Mike Yeo said "I'm worried about our team right now." That, of course, is exactly what he should be worried about, but let's hope the players are thinking about Detroit and how they stack up to one of the best teams in the league.
