Continued: Wild gets back on winning track with 4-1 win over Buffalo

The victory came against the lowest-scoring team in the NHL, one that’s 0-9-2 in its past 11 on the road.

All is not solved for the Wild, which has a way to go to climb comfortably back into the playoff race. But it was a start.

The team closes a four-game homestand Saturday against the Washington Capitals.

“We can’t get too excited,” Yeo said. “We have another challenge coming up.”
