“We can’t play with the starts we have,” Pominville said. “You’re not going to win many games when you have to battle back through the course of the game.
The top line and second line started the game with back-to-back shifts pinned in the Wild end, with the second shift proving painful.
After Scandella failed to check Saku Koivu in the corner, the veteran center sprung free, fed Beauchemin at the point and tipped his little wrist shot from the top of the circles past Backstrom.
Then, after a Granlund hooking penalty, Nick Bonino scored a power-play goal on Corey Perry’s rebound with Scandella caught between in the crease defending nobody and Backstrom slow to get over.
But Matt Cooke showed why his value goes beyond physicality. He’s known for drawing penalties and he drew two on this night; both resulted in power-play goals.
“We battled back to get a point, but we’re not happy about this one,” Yeo said.
