The Minnesota Wild is feeling the heat. The team lost for the second night in a row on Thursday and it feels like a major change could be take place shortly if they can’t start racking up the wins.
The Wild was dealt its sixth loss of the season on Thursday, and it has finally got to the players. After the 4-0 loss at the hands of the Montreal Canadiens, forward Jason Zucker called out the team, but also his own head coach Bruce Boudreau, who needs to get better, per team insider Michael Russo of The Athletic.
“I think more than (a meeting’s) going to have to jumpstart us to be honest with you. It’s going to be each individual guy from Bruce on down. Bruce has got to be better. We’ve got to be better. Everybody’s got to be better. That’s it.”
While Zucker believes a meeting needs to take place to get everyone back on track, he still called out his head coach in public. They might not go smoothly into the dressing room.
Zucker, who was mentioned more than once in trade rumours last season, has collected just two goals so far this year.
New general manager Bill Guerin has a lot on his hands and might be the one who will need to lead this meeting to get the Wild back on track and winning games…
