Continued: At halfway mark, Wild's goal drought, road woes must be fixed

It’s simple. If the Wild doesn’t solve its scoring woes and start winning on the road, it won’t make the playoffs.

Fletcher still is looking at the big picture.

“In the short-term, you can look at the standings every day and see where you are and see who’s behind you and who’s ahead of you and that’s a big part of it, but from my perspective, I try to take a broader view,” he said. “We obviously have work to do, we have a ways to go to become an elite team in this league, but to me over the last 24 months, we’ve taken huge strides. Last year was a big step forward and this year we’ll continue to get better.”
