The Wild are ‘finding different ways to lose hockey games’


The Minnesota Wild lost again last night, falling 5-3 to the Islanders in Brooklyn.

The latest defeat saw the Wild’s record fall to 3-8-3 in 2016, and it left head coach Mike Yeo bemoaning his team’s inability to make any “winning plays.”

“What’s concerning,” Yeo told reporters, “is we’re finding different ways to lose hockey games.”

For example, this defensive effort on the Isles’ third goal:

Thomas Vanek took responsibility for that one, calling it “on me.”

Hard to disagree there.

The Wild’s next game is Thursday against the Rangers at MSG.
