Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues Odds
Last time the two teams met, the Blues defeated Wild 3-3. Center Robert Thomas pushed the Blues to the win with an overtime goal with 1: 27 left.
Both of these teams are 98 point-rich, making this match very crucial. The Blues will win and take second in the Central Division. However, if they lose, the Wild will remain in control.
The Minnesota Wild are one of the top NHL teams over the past month. They are currently in the playoffs, despite being out of playoff contention for most of the season. Since March 16, they have only lost one game in regulation.
The Wild’s wingers are Mats Zuccarello, Kirill Kaprizov, and Alex Goligoski. Kaprizov has become the star on this team and has 91 points, Zuccarello is a veteran with 50 assists and 72 points, and Goligoski is an efficient defenseman with a +/- of 40.
The Wild are winning but don’t have an outstanding goaltender, Cam Talbot. Talbot’s performance is average and he gives up nearly 2.8 goals each game.
The St. Louis Blues have been the most popular team in April. The Blues have won seven of their previous games, and they lost the last one on April 1.
The Blues’ leadership team includes Vladimir Tarasenko and Robert Thomas. Tarasenko is a crafty veteran winger who can score and pass (he has 31 goals and 41 assists). Kyrou, a center who is just starting out with 42 assist. Although he’s a rising star, he isn’t the only center who is good in this league. He is joined by Robert Thomas; Thomas has an impressive 53 assists and plays almost 19 minutes a game. While Thomas, Tarasenko and Kyrou are all great, it would be remiss of me not to mention Justin Faulk. Faulk is the most efficient defenseman for St. Louis; he plays over 23 minutes a game and has a +/- of 38.
St. Louis’ success can be attributed to Ville Husso, the goaltender. Husso was the first goaltender of the season. After Jordan Binnington’s struggles, Husso became the starting goaltender and was promoted to starter. His performance has been impressive, and he was instrumental to the Blues’ recent success.
The Blues are the stronger team, and they’ll win at home.
St. Louis beats Minnesota 5-3. Blues win, 6 goals more.
