Playing their second game in as many nights, the Minnesota Wild came up against their Central Division foes, the St. Louis Blues, and were soundly beaten.
Minnesota, also coming off a loss to the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday, is now only one point up on the Phoenix Coyotes for the top Wild Card spot in the Western Conference. The Wild have lost six times in the last eight games, and, based on the comments of defenseman Ryan Suter, the penalty kill and power play has something to do with that.
“Our special teams has been terrible. We have to figure it out or we’re not even going to make the playoffs,” Suter told Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
