We’ve forgotten about them right now until the thing happens. -Bruce Boudreau, Wild Head Coach
The ‘thing’ that Boudreau was referring to is a potential playoff matchup against the Golden Knights. It’s not the matchup as of right now, but Minnesota’s holds just a three point lead on the wild card teams which means a date with Vegas is certainly a realistic possibility.
Boudreau’s nickname is Gabby, because he’s constantly gabbing. However, he gave short responses when I asked how a season sweep could carry over to the postseason.
Playoffs are a whole different animal. But this was as close to a playoff matchup you’ll get. -Boudreau
Unlike their coach, the Wild players didn’t downplay the season sweep.
Yeah I think we can use this confidence. I think to have the psychological advantage over them says something. We can definitely use that. -Charlie Coyle, Wild Forward
Coyle scored his 11th goal of the season on Friday night.
We’d be pretty confident playing against these guys. For some reason we play well against them every game. We see our real team when we play against these guys. -Coyle
