Even during the offseason, Minnesota Wild coach Bruce Boudreau keeps his television tuned to the NHL Network to make sure he’s up on what’s happening around the league. But with free agency ending in early July and training camps not starting until September, what he sees mostly on his TV are replays of playoff games. That means on more than a few occasions, Boudreau has tuned in to relive the Wild’s disappointing first-round series loss to the St. Louis Blues. “As soon as I see it on, I sit there and try to dissect it all over again,” he said. “Then I go to the office and pull up the computer and start looking at games there as well. When you get over it is when the season gets closer. Then you start thinking about training camp and your juices start flowing about the upcoming year.” For now, Boudreau is trapped between last season’s playoff disappointment and this season’s excitement about a revamped team that will come to training camp in six weeks. After delivering a $2,500 check to the Wounded Warriors Project at Plymouth Ice Center on Friday, Boudreau sat down to talk with the Pioneer Press.
