The Minnesota Wild enter this game 23rd in the NHL with a record of 20-19-6 on the season. The Wild have a road record of 9-14-2 this year, not doing as well as they would like. Minnesota has a record of 4-5-1 in their last 10 games, dropping two of them in a row. On the other side of the ice, the Pittsburgh Penguins enter this game 4th in the NHL, posting a record of 28-12-5 this season. The Penguins have a home record of 16-5-3 so far this season and enter this game on a three-game winning streak. Both of these teams have the ability to win this game so let us see who the trends favor.

Minnesota Wild Are Struggling

The Minnesota Wild enter this game ranked 17th in the NHL. Eric Staal continues to provide veteran leadership and produces on the stat sheet as well. Staal has racked up the most points of any player on this team and will need to shine tonight if the Wild want to pull off the upset.

The Wild are ranked 28th in the NHL when it comes to goals allowed per game when on the road. Alex Stalock will look to get the nod tonight. Stalock will need to be perfect to get the win tonight, closing down on his angles and getting vocal to his defense from the crease.

Pittsburgh Penguins Win Big At Home

The Pittsburgh Penguins are one of the best teams in the NHL right now. The Penguins rank 14th in the NHL in goals scored per game when at home. Bryan Rust has been a stud the last month, scoring goals left and right. Rust has racked up 18 goals and 20 assists on the year and will be every bit as good tonight to get a win at home here tonight.

Pittsburgh ranks 5th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when on home ice. Tristin Jarry has emerged as the new starter for the Penguins and has played to elite status since taking over the starting job. Look for Jarry to be a stone wall here tonight.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Go with the home team in this game, as the Pittsburgh Penguins are going to extend their crazy hot streak here tonight. The Pittsburgh Penguins are the hottest team in the NHL right now and have every reason to be confident going into this game. Evgeni Malkin and Bryan Rust have been electric all season long and have especially good during this hot streak. Malkin is one of the best puck handlers in the NHL and has been racking up points left and right. Kris Letang has been a monster on the blue line and is always good for a one-timer. The Penguins are so well equipped on offense they are the clear choice in this game. Tristin Jarry is gonna have a game tonight, so he will not be a liability.

Prediction: Pittsburgh Penguins

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Go with the under in this game. The under may not always be flashy, but it is the smart play in this one. The Minnesota Wild and the Pittsburgh Penguins are among the better teams in the NHL when it comes to defense. Alex Stalock and Tristin Jarry are two solid goalies who are both motivated to have a big night tonight. These two teams can get down and get dirty to deliver some wins and I would expect that to happen again here tonight. These two teams have the scorers to get the job done but their skaters excel at shutting down even the most prolific scorers in this league.

Prediction: Under 6
