FOX has been a bit behind the curve with dropping the Wild in the rankings, but they do continue to drop them week after week. This week is another three point drop, down to 21 this week. As stated earlier, 21 is still too high, but at least they are catching up.
In a course of two weeks, the Wild have fallen eight places in the rankings — five last week and three this week — courtesy of Minny losing four in a row last week and seven of its last eight. But when a team goes 1-for-25 on the power play in its last eight tilts, there’s nowhere to go but down.
Always nice to know it could still be worse.
