The Minnesota Wild and Vegas Golden Knights meet Monday in NHL action at the T-Mobile Arena.
The Minnesota Wild look to build on their six-game winning streak. The Minnesota Wild are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 7.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Joel Eriksson Ek leads Minnesota with eight goals, Jordan Greenway has 12 assists and Zach Parise has 43 shots on goal. Defensively, the Minnesota Wild are allowing 2.4 goals per game and are killing 84.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Cam Talbot has allowed 14 goals on 190 shots faced and Kaapo Kahkonen has allowed 28 goals on 330 shots.
The Vegas Golden Knights look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The Vegas Golden Knights are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 18.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Max Pacioretty leads Vegas with eight goals, Mark Stone has 13 assists and Shea Theodore has 44 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing 2.1 goals per game and are killing 87.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Robin Lehner has given up 15 goals on 136 shots faced and Marc-Andre Fleury has given up 19 goals on 324 shots.
The Wild are 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 6-0 in their last 6 overall. The Golden Knights are 23-8 in their last 31 home games and 35-16 in their last 51 overall. The over is 4-1 in Wild last 5 overall. The under is 7-0 in Golden Knights last 7 overall. The Wild are 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The underdog is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Vegas Golden Knights are obviously the rightful favorites here, as they're the better team on paper, elite defensively and are at home. However, we're getting plus money with the Wild, a team that's won six straight and has won six of the last eight meetings against Vegas. There's not a lot of teams in this league that have had one-sided success against the Golden Knights. I'll take my chances with the Wild and the plus money on the road.
