Wild go more than 20 minutes without a SOG, predictably lose game

The Wild don't know how to offense. They don't shoot, they aren't moving their feet..... there are a million problems. When you look at the official play-by-play on the NHL's new and significantly made-much-worse website, you have to jump from item 45 to 78 to connect two goals. That's from 4 minutes left in Period 1 to 57 seconds left in period 2. That's well over 20 minutes, and that is unacceptable.

The Wild got out to a lead... which is nice. But then they stopped shooting. Which is not.

We're getting to the point where no one moment changes the game, because the Wild simply don't play well for games at a time. When everything is awful, nothing smells worse than anything else.
