Suter, Pominville, Wild coach talk 3-0 loss to LA Kings

Over in the Kings’ locker room they were talking about Thursday night’s game providing a bit of redemption, as LA felt like they let one get away in Minnesota last week (where they had a 3-1 lead and lost via a shootout). In the re-match – and possible playoff preview – it was the Wild coming up short, laying a 3-0 egg at Staples Center. After things were finished on the ice, here’s what they were saying back in the visiting team’s locker room…

- Ryan Suter on the overall game: “When you are playing a lot of games, on the road you can’t get behind. We have been doing that to ourselves; shooting in the foot to start the game. You can’t afford to do that. Obviously, you are concerned but you can’t panic. Throughout the year you are going to go through ups and downs. You have to work harder to get out of the hole. We have the guys in here who can do it. We have to get back to playing simple hockey. I think we are trying to complicate it. It doesn’t make it any easier for us.”

- Jason Pominville on the overall game: “Bernier was good tonight. I think we can find ways to create a little bit more. Obviously we only had one power play. We weren’t able to generate much on it. It was a low scoring game where not a lot was done with the quality opportunities, but I think we had some good zone time, we moved them around. I think the scoring chances will definitely come for sure.”

- Coach Mike Yeo on the overall game:“It’s tough for sure to start the game like that. But still you give up a goal, it can’t turn into two. Obviously we have to eliminate some of the big mistakes we are making. Two goals on line changes. That’s usually something we are pretty strong on. The reality is this has been a grueling stretch, but we have a couple of days now. We have to use them the right way. Get the rest and get focused on this final stretch.”

- Yeo on Pominville tonight: “I thought that line was great for us. That for me is a bright spot. We saw some things that were very encouraging.”
