Mikko Koivu said his team isn't playing well enough to win right now.

The Wild lost a 6-5 overtime game to Nashville on Saturday and Koivu wasn't pleased with his team's effort. "We can talk and say all the right things,’’ said Koivu. ""But at the end, it’s got to be happening on the ice. We’ve got some good parts of the game, but we can’t keep it for 60 minutes, and we’ve got to find an answer for that. We’re chasing these guys, and we need points. That can’t happen. With five goals, we should be able to win a hockey game, and we’re not doing that right now. The bottom line is, we’ve got to be better.’’
