Continued: Sluggish Wild shut out 3-0 by Ottawa at the X

A week ago, the Wild was bemoaning nine losses in its previous 10 road games. It suddenly has won three in a row on the road but has lost four of six at home.

“If you want to be a team that climbs in the standings and a team that’s tough to play against, you have to be better than what we were at home,” Pominville said.

What made the loss more aggravating for the eighth-place Wild is that ninth-place Phoenix lost, so the Wild could have built on a four-point cushion on a Coyotes team that has played three fewer games.

“Home’s where you’ve got to take advantage,” Fontaine said. “We’ve been playing good on the road. We’ve got to bring it back here. We all know it. We all know we’ve got better.”
