Slow Starts Continue As Wild Fall to Kings

The Wild have to settle for a .500 road trip and to be honest that may be a fortunate result given the fact that they yielded the first two goals in each of the four games.

Call it what you want, the Wild continue to be unprepared at the start night after night, combine that with the fact that they are offensively challenged and the record they have is no surprise.

Los Angeles came into the game with the 30th ranked penalty kill yet the Wild were unable to take advantage of the three man advantage opportunities they had. Boudreau indicated the Wild failed to execute and work the Kings PK and therefore they were unsuccessful.

That is an explanation, the question is, where is the solution?

In order for the Wild to be successful they need to take advantage of opportunities and to be honest they must show a better sense of urgency in their game from the start.

This is a total team effort or should I say lack there of on many nights. It seems like one step forward and two steps back far too often with this team.

Not saying that the Wild should have a winning record by any stretch, however they should be a lot closer to .500 than they currently sit. There is very little momentum from game to game it appears that each game evolves into something the Wild have to adjust to.

We have said this a lot over the last couple of seasons about the Wild, they truly lack identity.

Back home finally for consecutive games for only the second time all season the Wild host the Coyotes tomorrow night and the Hurricanes on Saturday afternoon.
