Things have not been going very well for the Wild lately, but things are REALLY not going well for fellow Central Division foe St. Louis.
The Blues got off to a slow start this year and fired former Wild coach Mike Yeo after compiling a 7-8-3 record in their first 18 games.
Things have only gotten worse since then, with St. Louis going 3-6-1 since Yeo was dumped — including a 6-1 home loss to Vancouver in its most recent game.
And during practice Monday, things seemed to have reach a boiling point when TEAMMATES Robert Bortuzzo and Zach Sanford fought each other on the ice. I mean, sometimes a scrap during a game can change momentum but when it’s two teammates doing battle I’m pretty sure the net benefit is zero or less.
In case you’re worried that news of a practice fight was overblown: there’s video! They did, indeed, fight.
