Golden Knights vs. Wild Prediction

I’m leaning towards Vegas here. This is an important game between two teams that are fighting for the final Wild Card spot in the Western Conference, and Minnesota does need this win to keep themselves in the conversation for the final spot, but Vegas is still not off the hook in their own right and I think this is a good spot for them to get some momentum. The Golden Knights are playing the better hockey right now and I just can’t trust the Wild here, even at home. I’ll side with Vegas in this one.
