Wild look to rebound in tonight's Game 6 of playoff series
ST. PAUL - The Minnesota Wild remain confident they can recover from last night's Game Five playoff loss in Chicago.
Wild head coach Mike Yeo says they can't concern themselves with the "near-miss" 2-1 loss. He says they're frustrated and mad, but thinks that there's been enough in the series where they should feel confident. He adds "we also recognize that we better be ready."
Yeo's team trails the Blackhawks three-games-to-two in the best-of-seven NHL Western Conference semifinals. That means tonight's Game Six in St. Paul is an elimination game for the Wild. Minnesota needs to win it to keep the season alive and move to a decisive Game Seven in Chicago on Thursday.
