The New York Rangers and Minnesota Wild face off on Saturday in an NHL showdown at Xcel Energy Center. 

The Wild Need to Find Some Defense

The Wild have had some major defensive issues and they are going to need to figure them out if they want to turn the season around. The Wild in the last game gave up five goals to the Devils and they are going to need the offense to be a whole lot better here. In goal was Filip Gustavsson and he saved 33 of the 38 shots. The Wild are averaging 3.5 goals while their defense is giving up 4.2 gaols per game.

What a Start of the Season for the Rangers

The Rangers sit with an 8-2-0 record overall and they are coming off a victory in the last game. The Rangers gave up only a goal against the Carolina Hurricanes and that was enough for one goal victory. The Rangers are averaging 3.0 goals while their defense is giving up 1.9 goals per game. The offense is ranked 19th while the defense is ranked 2nd. Igor Shesterkin is expected to start in goal for the Rangers and coming into this game he sits with a 6-2 record and he has a save percentage of 91.3 percent. 

Shane’s Free Pick

Even on the road, this is going to be a blowout victory for the Rangers. The Wild’s defense has been awful and the Rangers are going to score four or five goals here. The Rangers defense is also going to be dominant here, and the Wild are going to struggle to score more than a goal. This is going to be a 4-1 or 5-1 type of game with the Rangers securing the victory. Back the Rangers -1.5. 

Shane’s Pick Rangers -1.5
