07:42 AM ET 12.24 | Mike Yeo had hoped to enter the three-day holiday break "feeling good about our game," and yet the Wild have now tripped into it on a sour note. [Minnesota] scored four goals in three consecutive losses, the latest being a 4-1 defeat Monday night to the Philadelphia Flyers. The Wild, the NHL's 29th-ranked offense, has scored nine goals in a stretch of eight losses in nine road games (1-7-1) and 22 goals in the past 15 games overall. ... Yeo, in the last year of his contract, is feeling the heat now. "I'm not worried about that. I don't care," Yeo said. "I believe in this group and I believe we're going in the right direction. I believe this is the group that's going to get it done. We'll keep hammering away at it."

perhaps they will get it done, but he won't be behind the bench to see it

Agreed. I think there is more talent on that team than what they are showing and Yeo has to know that the axe is coming.

This has never been a franchise known for it's scoring.

They're like the Predators, a low scoring defensive team that tries to win 2-1. BUT, that was supposed to change when Parise, Pominville, Heatley, Koivu, etc. showed up. Sometimes things don't always work out the way they're supposed to.

No, the Wild Turkey comes after the lame duck gets chopped.

Ducks, axes, feeling the heat. Sounds like somebody is about to have Roast Duck for Christmas.
