The Vegas Golden Knights and Minnesota Wild meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Xcel Energy Center.
The Vegas Golden Knights look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 20.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with 24 goals, Mark Stone has 33 assists and Reilly Smith has 141 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing three goals per game and are killing 79 percent of their opponents power plays. Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 111 goals on 1,177 shots faced and Malcolm Subban has allowed 50 goals on 487 shots. The Vegas Golden Knights have allowed three or more goals in 10 of their last 13 games.
The Minnesota Wild look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Minnesota Wild are averaging 3.1 goals per game and are scoring on 20.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Zach Parise leads Minnesota with 20 goals, Ryan Suter has 31 assists and Eric Staal has 95 shots on goal. Defensively, the Minnesota Wild are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 73.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Devan Dubnyk has given up 79 goals on 730 shots faced and Alex Stalock has allowed 72 goals on 757 shots. The Minnesota Wild have allowed three or less goals in seven of their last nine games.
The Golden Knights are 0-4 in their last 4 Tuesday games, 0-4 in their last 4 games playing on 2 days rest and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The Wild are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Western Conference and 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games. The over is 3-1-1 in Golden Knights last 5 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Wild last 4 overall. The Golden Knights are 2-5 in the last 7 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The underdog is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings.
The Vegas Golden Knights continue to be hit or miss lately and the defense has been hard to trust a lot of the time. The Minnesota Wild have caught fire over the last two weeks with wins in six of their last nine tries, and the defense is playing some of its best hockey during that stretch. The Minnesota Wild have also won five of the seven meetings against Vegas. I'll gladly take the Wild and the plus money with them on their home ice.
