Continued: Wild coach Mike Yeo: 'We're going to be more aggressive'

Yeo: No. Believe it or not, it doesn’t worry me. You know me; that’s not the way my brain operates. This is where I want to stay. This is where I want to be, this is who I want to coach. But the one thing I’ve promised myself this year, everyday I’m just going to coach my butt off. And one thing I will say for sure, there will never be a day where I coach to save my job. I’m coaching to win.

Q: How critical was it to win that final game in Colorado and make the playoffs?

A: It was such an important step for our group. You could see it in our players, that last stretch of actually clinching it. You could see it in all of us; we knew how important it was. That fear can be almost paralyzing. But we overcame it and now we don’t have that fear. We can’t say that we haven’t made the playoffs in four years. We made the playoffs last year. And now our focus is on something bigger than that.
