The Minnesota Wild lost again. Whomp, whomp.

In response to the 6-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins on Thursday night, the Wild held a quick players-only meeting immediately after the game and while they won’t say specifically what was mentioned, you can kind of assume what was said by a bunch of players that suffered their third consecutive loss.

Yeah, I mean, there are certainly ways to not lose last night’s game, such as: Not taking five penalties, not being easy in the neutral zone, actually scoring on the power play, not relying on Joel Eriksson Ek to score half your goals. Just stuff like that.

That’s Wild

Off the trail...

  • The Hockey Hall of Fame induction happened earlier this week which means we get to read blogs about current players that have earned the honor. According to one dude, Edmonton Oilers captain Connor McDavid has already earned it way before he even hits 30 years old. [ESPN]
