Coach Bruce Boudreau wants to see Charlie Coyle shoot more often this season.

"I know I have to be more selfish," said Coyle. "It doesn't come naturally, but it's the right thing to do. You don't get that many opportunities to shoot the puck in this league. When you do, you have to take advantage. Being selfish here is a good thing most of the time. I just have to get it into my head to put it on net, and not always look for other guys and try to make the pretty play." He scored 18 goals and registered a personal high 56 points last season. Coyle is slated to start the year alongside Eric Staal and Nino Niederreiter.

Charlie Coyle scored the game-winning goal in Thursday's 3-2 win over the St. Louis Blues.

Coyle broke the 2-2 tie with just 4.3 seconds remaining in regulation. The 25-year-old scored 18 goals and a career-high 56 points in 82 games. His point total has actually increased in each one of his five NHL seasons. There's plenty of talented forwards in Minnesota, so it'll be difficult for him to get a remarkably high point total in 2017-18, but Coyle is capable of hitting 60 points.

Charlie Coyle believes the Minnesota Wild can push the Blues in their best-of-seven series.

Minnesota was able to cut their deficit to 3-1 in the series thanks to a big win in Game 4. Even though the odds aren't in their favor, Coyle believes his team can make a comeback. "I think it's huge," Coyle said of Minnesota's Game 4 win. "We get that win, and all of a sudden, they're second-guessing. They're still in the driver's seat, but they're second-guessing. The pressure's on, and now they're thinking, 'We're going back home, Game 6; if we lose this one, it's Game 7 back in their barn.' And they're starting to doubt themselves. It's such a mental thing here. That's what you learn as it goes along."
