Minnesotalla on vaikeaa.
"The guys, they practice well, they've got good energy; and then the game comes the next day and there's nothing — and you can tell," Wild coach Jacques Lemaire said. "Even their minds; they're not sharp."
Don't think coach Jacques Lemaire didn't notice. And after the Wild's listless 3-1 loss to Los Angeles on Saturday afternoon, don't think he didn't remember. "They are responsible for what they do off the ice," he said. "I'm not a baby sitter. They're responsible, they're professionals. We talked about that. They know." And though there's no scientific evidence to report that Wild players were swept away by L.A.'s nightlife, Lemaire is clearly frustrated by what he sees as a lack of game-day focus from his team. "That's all we talk about," he said. "It shouldn't be hard." One good sign Lemaire is starting to see? Anger. "Sometimes I like when they get frustrated and they get upset and they kick the door and they break their sticks," he said. "It's a good sign. They're starting to do it, so that's good."
"I think there's a lot of things (wrong)," Miettinen said as he rode a stationary bike after Saturday's loss. "I don't think it's preparation, or focus, or anything like that. We're giving up 40 shots in the last couple games; there's something more going on than just (lack of) scoring. When we play tight and together, we create more chances — more quality shots.
