Down one in an overtime shootout with the Canadiens Thursday night, the Wild sent out Devin Setoguchi, who scored earlier in the night, as their final shooter to hopefully extend the game. So what did the former 30-goal scorer do? Well, you can just see for yourself. Be warned: It ain’t pretty. Setoguchi has had an up-and-down (mostly down) season (not unlike his team) after being traded by the Sharks over the summer. After a promising start to the campaign, Setoguchi has had “attitude” issues (or has done things that suggest such) and has even been a healthy scratch on occasion. He’s also on pace for his one his worst statistical years. So yeah, you could say that shootout attempt was pretty much Setoguchi’s year, in a nutshell. [H/T Puck Daddy]
