Minnesota is 4-0 in their last 4 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 8-1 in their last 9 games as a road favorite. Arizona is 1-6 in their last 7 games overall and 1-5 in their last 6 games as an underdog while the over is 4-1 in their last 5 games played on 1 days rest. The over is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in Arizona.

I get the case that could be made for the under here as Minnesota plays a strong defensive brand of hockey and Arizona usually plays defense first and relies on it to get the job done, but I think we see the offenses come to play once again on Wednesday. The last two meetings have combined for 14 goals, 7 in each, and I think we could see something similar on Wednesday. Give me the over.
