In a game from NHL, we will see Minnesota Wild at Vancouver Canucks.
The Wild may have started the year 1-4 but they have turned things around since and they are on a 5-game winning streak. They have allowed just 9 goals in these last 5 games and their defense it tough to break. There are still some issues on offense but given the fact that they don’t need to score much, in order to win their games, it is enough. Minnesota enters this game ranked 22nd on offense with 2.90 goals per game while its defense is ranked 8th in the league, allowing just 2.60 goals.
Vancouver had a nice start to the season but things are not looking great at the moment. They lost their last two game by a combined score of 9-1, including a home loss to the Penguins by 5-0. The Canucks have now lost 4 of their last 6 games and if they don’t find a way to score goals, they will be in for a long season. Currently, they are ranked 26th on offense with 2.50 goals scored per game and 20th on defense, allowing 3.33 goals.
I believe that we won’t see many goals in this one and the Minnesota Wild will score just enough to secure the victory. Which won’t be hard at all since Vancouver has been having problems on both sides of the ball.
