Ugly game. The Wild still look tired, slow...even if it was the 2nd game of a back to back. The Wild were very fortunate we were playing Arizona tonight. Coyle and Nino have ZERO confidence right now. I have a full game recap and a ton of prospect news, check it out!
According to announcers, Wild is oldest team in league at 29.1 years of age. Pittsburgh is second. This is an albatross for the future - we can't get younger with 3-4 boat anchors. Thanks CL and CF?!? $hit! And we are playing like it again in first period of our 6th game again.
Wild controlled the whole game? They sure spent a lot of time in our own end.
At one point, I think in the 3rd period, the puck went whizzing down into Arizona's zone and the commentators noted how fast the ice was down there. Well yeah, the ice down there was pretty lonely... nice and cold, hardly skated on.
Giving up 32 shots on goal isn't controlling the whole game.
Meh, the Wild certainly botched some of their opportunities but Dubnyk had to make some fantastic stops to keep us in the game. IMO the game could've easily been 4-1 the other way too. Granlund's goal was about as yogurt soft as you can get.
During the game they said the Coyotes allow the fewest shots on goal, leading the league. I can't remember if that number was 23.8 or 28.3... Something like that. It was a remarkable stat to say the least.
It was also pretty clear Dubnyk kept the Wild in the game with some key saves.
I also noticed the Coyotes PP was eerily similar to how the Wild waste their time on the PP. Their players camp out on the blue line while someone skates up-ice with the puck, then drop it ba
