from Tom Powers of the Pioneer Press, The Wild played their ninth game of 2011-12 Thursday night against the Anaheim Ducks. They have scored a grand total of 18 goals (not counting shootouts). Last season, which generally is referred to as “that God- forsaken season,” the team had 25 goals after eight games.
They lost 3-2 to Anaheim. And afterward, coach Mike Yeo did everything but light a victory cigar.
“You have to look at the big picture,” Yeo explained. “Did we deserve to win the game? I believe we did.”
“Through the course of that game, we were better than them,” he added.
“We’re doing the things that winners do.”
Actually, no. Winners win.
