The first period was not good, but overall this was an impressive effort for the second of back-to-back games on the road. Hopefully the Wild begin to understand they are capable of controlling a game when they have all five guys putting in the effort on the forecheck and creating turnovers.

Anaheim is a good team. That is all I can say.

Anaheim is a good team? A little more than that...size...goal tending ....and shooters. Not a defensemen under 6'1". 6'1"...see why they're good? Big in the right place...that's how you build...noone who wins the cup will have a defenseman under 6'0" noone.

Great game to be at! The wild looked really good and moved the puck really well the last 2 periods. I hope they can build off this loss.

I knew this coming when I read Russo tweeted that Yeo is changing the line up again. After an impressive win game, Yeo again tinkered the lines for another loss. doesn't he know by now that linemates need chemistry? a good team need stability in the line up. what's with all the scratching in and out. the team played bad, the coach made moves. the team showed off impressive win, the coach made more moves. you must be kidding me. I don't thing the wild can get anywhere with all this joke around. stability is the key, coach. can your player played well for you if you keep demoting him in and out of the line up. I would not be very happy right now if I'm Grandlund. the poor kid should think twice when he decided to sign with the wild under this coach. the kid's confident is getting worst. one day he was in the top of his self and was well known to the hockey world. now because Yeo thinks differently, he isn't what he is. he's becoming a 4th liner, scratches in and out of the line up, and a down throdden loser to second round draft picks, Zucker and even larson whom even fares much better playing in houston. I think Yeo can get this team barely to the layoff, simply because he used military like style to treat his troop, pushing everyone around to the point they have to die hard or give up. so I''m sure none of them happy. the wild will not get to the top with Yeo as their coach simply because they never play happy. they are and will be angry hungry wild ones.

We need finishers. Just like the gophers, someone on the 3rd or 4the line needs to bury one for the win. Another frustrating Minnesota sports team. Turn it on! Where is the sports psych now?

Playing 40 minutes a game and moral victories aint getting the Wild to the Cup, nor the playoffs.

Another sorry outing for the home team. Contrast the Wild's losing last minute efforts with the same night Blackhawk's overtime victory. Their passing put the puck on the right stick at the right time. Did Ryan Suter get another assist on an opposing team goal when the puck went off his skate in front of our net to set up an easy Ducks tap in? He's no Nick Leddy for sure.
