Devin Setoguchi's close call in OT almost won it, and the team went on to close out a victory in the shootout.

A lesson in how to shoot yourself in the foot.

@jiminy c- They shot themselves in the foot long before this game tonight

now that they aren't in a playoff berth I predict that they win the rest of the games this season. yada yada!

I know it's not *cool* to talk about moving up in the draft by losing games... but... stop winning.

I would rather upset these teams trying to get into the playoffs then "maybe" move up a pick!

@joejoe1 How have they shot themselves in the foot? That happened when the slide started in December. This is "mop up" time. They'll still get either the top 3 or 4 pick. So where's the problem?

LA outplayed them most of the game. Good to see them comeback in the 3rd.

From day one you could see that Zuckers speed would surface into offense. Good draft pick by the Wild.

lindy_frank123, you say the Wild will get the top 3rd or 4th pick. Unlikely if they win. Currently, the Wild are in 4th position. Practically no chance of 3rd. Montreal is 3 points below us, one game less than us: They would have to win 2 of their remaining 3 and we would lose all 4. So, scratch 3rd position off your list. 4th at best. We rest at 76 points. There are 3 teams with 77, one at 78, one at 79. We win one game, we could move up to 7th pick. One more, 9th. Where we actually land depends on the outcomes of many games this week, but based on the facts your assurances that the Wild will end up at least with 4th pick are premature.

I agree with lindy-frank123...and nice to see Zucker looking like he was much more relaxed...played a great 2nd game...as for the draft-we still sit in #4 position...GO WILD!!
