CALGARY, Alberta - The Minnesota Wild were looking to take another step forward after winning two straight games, but Matt Stajan and the Calgary Flames had a different idea in Saturday's 3-1 victory.
"We've been playing pretty good here lately," Yeo said. "We're talking about how we are still learning and still building our game. You learn from doing the right thing and seeing the result and from doing the wrong thing, like we just did."
With the game tied in the third period, Jarome Iginla screened Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom as Chris Butler's slap shot from the blue line was deflected on net by Iginla.
Backstrom stopped the initial drive and sprawled to get his pad on Stajan's rebound, but Stajan jammed the puck over the line just inside the post at 7:19.
Stajan entered as the Flames' leader at plus-5, and he has been one of Calgary's most consistent players this season.
The Wild seemed to have a jump in their step in the first period, but even then Yeo said he wasn't pleased with the style of play from his team.
"This whole game, we took the wrong approach," Yeo said. "If we want to score goals, we shouldn't play like that. The Edmonton game was a much better blueprint of how they will come. We didn't execute the right way. We didn't play our game and the result was what we deserved."
Yeo saidthe teamfell into a fast-paced style of play rather than focusing on one-on-one battles, gathering loose pucks and playing strong defense.
"This was a team effort tonight, in the wrong direction," Yeo said.
On a positive note, Charlie Coyle scored his first NHL goal.
"We are happy for him getting his first goal, but I'm sure he would have liked to have gotten it in a win," Yeo said.
