This game has been postponed. The St. Louis Blues and the Minnesota Wild meet in NHL action from the Xcel Energy Center on Monday night.

The St. Louis Blues will look to build on their 3-2 win over the Wild in their last matchup. David Perron leads the Blues in scoring with 40 points including a team-high 27 assists while Ryan O’Reilly has 39 points with a team-high 17 goals and 22 assists. Brayden Schenn has 28 points and Jordan Kyrou and Mike Hoffman have 25 and 23 points respectively with Schenn, Kyrou and Hoffman all having double-digit goal and assist marks this season. Torey Krug also has 21 assists for the Blues this season. As a team, St. Louis is averaging 2.9 goals per game on 30 shots with an 18.1% success rate on the power play while allowing 3.1 goals on 29.9 shots against with a 76.6% success rate killing off penalties this season.

The Minnesota Wild could use a win to get back on track after their loss to St. Louis last time out. Kirill Kaprizov leads the Wild in scoring with 34 points including a team-high 16 goals with 18 assists while Kevin Fiala has 25 points with 14 goals and 11 assists. Joel Greenway has 24 points with a team-high 19 assists while Mats Zuccarello has 16 assists and Joel Eriksson Ek has 13 goals this season.

St. Louis is 5-12 in their last 17 games overall and 0-4 in their last 4 road games while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a win. Minnesota is 10-1 in their last 11 games as a home favorite and 10-4 in their last 14 games overall while the under is 6-2 in their last 8 home games. The home team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings between these two teams.

I think a case could be made either way here as the Blues picked up a couple of nice wins lately and have done their best work on the road, but Minnesota’s been tough to beat on home ice. With that said, we’re getting a really good price to back a Minnesota team that’s not only been tough at home, but have been playing the better hockey as of late. St. Louis has been one of the worst money won/lost teams in the NHL this season and getting a reasonable price with the Wild is too good to pass on here.
