The Wild could not have tripped into the Christmas break in a worse way.

With Mike Yeo’s stated goal last week to enter the three-day holiday hiatus “feeling good about our game,” the Wild 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.

“I’m not going to try to paint a rosy picture and I’m not going to make any excuses,” Yeo said. “Flat out, we need to better. It’s every one of us, it starts with me.

“This is not us. There’s no way we can accept this. It’s not us and we have to fix it. With that said, this is the same group that will fix it. I have no doubt. Am I worried? No. Ticked off? Yeah, that we’re in this funk. But I also don’t have any doubts that we’ll fix it. This is the same group that raised the expectations, this is the same group that got us to a point where we were in a good spot and this is the same group that’s going to get us out of it.”

From Oct. 22-Nov. 23, the Wild reeled off a 12-2-1 run to climb to fifth in the West. It has since gone 5-9-1 and slipped to ninth in the West.
