Wild Lose Eighth Straight, Fall to Blues 6-3

There isn’t much to write on this one. The Wild have packed it up for the season, pride be damned. Mikko Koivu had three assists, Antti Miettinen benefited on two of them, and Niklas Backstrom was left out to dry yet again, facing 47 shots against.

After the game, the media was asked to leave the locker room for a coaches meeting with the players. As of this writing, the meeting was still going on. More details as they become available.

Suffice to say, the Wild did not show up for another game. Frustrations are high, and there is nothing left to play for but pride. Looks like not even that at this point.
