Boudreau walks into this one by viewing Wild’s next contest ‘like a Game 7'
It’s tough not to feel bad for Minnesota Wild head coach Bruce Boudreau ... unless you’d rather just make fun of him.
Boudreau said that he’s not going to criticize his team’s efforts after the St. Louis Blues opened up a startling 3-0 series lead against the Wild, and it’s easy to see why. Luck can be pretty cruel and fickle in the playoffs, and as it stands, Minnesota just can’t seem to solve Jake Allen.
