There was a lot of dumping and chasing for the Wild Thursday night, and the fact that they were 22 Corsi events behind after two periods was very indicative of the lack of overall puck possession by the hometown 20. The power play was 0-for-2 tonight and continue to struggle on the road in that department. The Wild had four 2-on-1s in the game and failed to get a shot on goal on any of them. I still claim that the Wild may be the worst team in the league at converting odd-man rushes because either there are too many passes, the initial pass is not handled by the receiver, or it's too slow that the back-checking forward can make a good defensive play.
Ultimately, the players failed to execute and the the onus is starting to shift onto their shoulders. Sure, Yeo can be criticized for a number of things, but the players need to actually perform on the ice.
