The Minnesota Wild and the Arizona Coyotes meet in NHL action from the Gila River Arena on Saturday night.

The Minnesota Wild will look to build on their 5-1 win over the Coyotes in their last meeting on Friday night.

Mats Zuccarello opened the scoring for the Wild just 4:27 into the game and the lead would hold until Brad Hunt doubled the lead with just under seven minutes to go in the opening frame and Nick Bjugstad added a 3rd goal just 1:09 later. The 3-0 line would hold until Joel Greenway made it 4-0 just over five minutes into the second with the lone goal of the middle period. Clayton Keller got the Coyotes on the board just under five minutes into the 3rd but that’s as close as Arizona ended up getting as Kevin Fiala restored the four-goal cushion with just over a minute to go in the game and the Wild rode the 5-1 score all the way to the finish line.

Kaapo Kahkonen would pick up the win in goal for Minnesota after stopping 24 of 25 shots faced in the winning effort while Antti Raanta took the loss for the Coyotes after allowing all 5 goals on 27 shots faced in the loss.

Minnesota is 6-2 in their last 8 games overall and 15-7 in their last 22 road games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 games played on no rest. Arizona is 17-42 in their last 59 games played on no rest and 1-4 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 home games. Minnesota is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings between the two in Arizona.

I thought maybe we’d see a bit of a competitive game from Arizona here, and well, we didn’t get it. Maybe we’ll get it here! Not betting on that though. The Wild just play a physical style that the Coyotes are not well equipped to get past and realistically, the Coyotes offense isn’t well equipped to get past many teams in the league. I just think Minnesota is the better team and with no rest advantage on either side, I have to go with the Wild for another victory on the short turnaround.
