FRIDAYS STORY LINES: After a dominating 5-1 win over Vancouver last night, the Wild came to practice today riding a three-game winning streak and owning 4th place in the Western Conference standings. Head Coach Mike Yeo doesnt want his team to be satisfied with where they are. Today is only November 4th and the Wild have still have 70 games to play. It is not about where we are at today, its about coming to the rink and becoming a better team, and I feel like we have made improvement," said Yeo. "I feel like we are making strides. Winners are never satisfied, we cant be satisfied where we are at. We cant be satisfied with the fact we won three in a row, we have to come back tomorrow ready to work and build are game. Yeo felt things came easily in Minnesotas 5-1 win over the Canucks last night and didnt feel Vancouver was at their best. He cautioned things wont be as easy tomorrow against St. Louis. We have to quickly realize that things may have come fairly easy for us last night, but they are not going to come easy for us tomorrow night, and we are going to have to earn whatever we can take out there. Yeo felt his team worked really hard in practice" and that the team was loose. He cautioned that the cant become too complacent or comfortable with the three-game winning streak. We better be ready tomorrow. We better be ready to embrace how hard that game is going to be and bring a hard fought effort to the game. GOING WITH THE HOT HAND: Josh Harding will get his 4th straight start tomorrow night vs. St. Louis. Harding is 4-2-0, with a 1.78 GAA in his career vs. St. Louis. HE SAID IT: I dont expect Zid to go out there and all of a sudden dominate and have one of those games thats just incredible, but he was plus four in the game. I thought he was really good in the game. I think that is the kind of game he can build off of. He did a lot of good things in the game and hopefully he comes back the next day and feels a little bit confident in himself and is ready to go assert himself and show he can do it again and again, come back and have another good game, and keep building from there. Again, I dont think any player, you can ask them to just all of a sudden to start playing great. I think it has to go back and do what you have to do and build off one shift and build off the next shift and build off a good period and build off a good game, and that is what he has a chance to do now. ---Yeo on being happy with Zidlickys effort last night.
