Article: Wilderness Walk: Inconsistency Earns Wild Loss In New York

Mixed bag of wild results yesterday.  The lightning in a bottle we saw from ROBOKAP in their first game has subsided.  Please give them 10-15 more games together, if for no other reason to speed Rossi’s development

 I think the Ek-Fo-oon line is a keeper too.  GREEF 2.0. 
mojo+zucc+Hartman (lost toys line) is going nowhere fast. 
NYR is a top nhl team so no shame in a season split

Rossi and Boldy are solid players on the line, but something about Kaprizov on 5on5 is really lacking this year.  I doubt it'll be a problem.  They were getting stuff going in other games.  

Brock...FABER!  Pay this many the Ek or Boldy special.  Just lock him up.

3rd line is amazing

Fleury saved this game from being complete crap, cause the defense didn't do him many favors.  Middleton had quite a few weird plays.  Bogosian was fine.  He and Hunt seemed to have decent chemistry.  However, Spurgeon returning is too much for that to stick with.  

All in all, the game was closer than it had any right to be.  The Wild didn't bury their chances, while the Rangers got theirs.

There is still something wrong with the Wild.  Many of our players seem to be out of position and lose puck battles way too easily because of it.  This may be a Dean problem in how he is instructing players.

I'm really disappointed in our PK, PP.  We look awful.  How can you win a game when players are scared of an atrocious PK and lack confidence in PP.  Tough to win games when you are spotting the opposing team 1 or 2 goals from special teams.  IMO: This is definitely a coaching problem.   He needs to improve the PK/PP or lose his job.  He has had plenty of time to solve it.  I do not put the blame here on the players.
