Those thinking that perhaps Bruce Boudreau would wax poetic about his team’s second period comeback against Winnipeg would be mistaken.

The Minnesota Wild were down 4-0 early in the second period to the Jets before coming all the way back to tie the game before the middle period was up, thanks to four goals in just over 10 minutes.

In the end, the Wild still lost after giving up a third-period goal to Jets defenseman Josh Morrissey and not being able to beat goalie Michael Hutchinson for the equalizer in the final seconds.

Boudreau met with reporters post-game and, well, he wasn’t in any way happy or positive about the developments Sunday. Minnesota has now lost five in a row and eight of 10 games this month, falling out of first place in the Central Division.

Asked about his team’s resiliency, the coach offered this response: “Hey, listen: We stunk in the first period. We better come back in the second. Holy crap. It’s not resiliency. You’re making it sound like we’re good. That’s — I’m done.”

The Wild host the San Jose Sharks on Tuesday.
