Continued: Wild caught flat-footed in loss to Avalanche

Yeo flipped struggling Spurgeon and Jonas Brodin on the first and second pairs. In the second period, Nino Niederreiter and Matt Moulson switched lines. In the third, Yeo reunited the Parise-Mikael Granlund-Jason Pominville line and a put together a Moulson-Koivu-Coyle line.

Yeo can do all the line switching he wants. If the Wild doesn’t figure out a way to clean up the neutral zone and shut down the Landeskog-MacKinnon-Stastny line, this series will be over before he knows it.

“You’ve got to get the next one. That has to be the mind- set,” Suter said. “You can’t get frustrated. We’ll be better.”
