As players, I don't think that's any of our business. There's nothing we can do about it. This is between Marian and the Wild organization. It's not between any of the players. We basically come to play and we still have a job to do. The season is not going to stop. We have a job to do and we can't worry about his situation. That's something that he believes in and he's making a stand for it.
We have a lot of good character guys in the room that care about winning and care about each other. We have probably five, six, seven, eight nine guys that are like that, so I think we're OK in that department.
We have stretches in games where we kind of lose our train our thought, we start opening up and making mistakes in different areas. We really got to make sure that we do the right things for 60 minutes. We had that nice little stretch in January when we did that and were successful.
This is such a tight battle with nine or 10 teams that are neck and neck. Coming home is big for us. We can't afford a letdown. A lot of times when you're on the road for a period of time, you come back and have a letdown for a game or two.
We had been working a little on that in practice. We talked about it the shift before we went on. We made an adjustment or two and they were a little aggressive, so we thought we would catch them off-guard. Clark snuck down there and snuck one past them.
It's a swing game for both us. It's as much desperation for us as it is for them. It is a scary lead, 2-0, because it is a momentum shift. We have to treat it like it is 1-1 and try to dictate the flow.
