Analysis
At 7:08 PM ET on Wednesday, we will be playing the money-line on the Minnesota Wild (29) versus the New Jersey Devils (39). THE SITUATION: Minnesota (11-6-1) have lost two straight and three of their last four after their 5-4 loss in a shootout at Tampa Bay on Sunday. New Jersey (8-5-3) snapped their three-game losing streak with a 5-3 win at Tampa Bay on Saturday. REASONS TO TAKE THE WILD WITH THE MONEY-LINE: Minnesota should respond with a strong effort tonight. They have won 15 of their last 22 games after allowing at least five goals in their last game. The Wild have also won 10 of their last 11 games after losing two in a row. Additionally, Minnesota has won 5 of their last 6 games when playing with two days of rest — and they have won 15 of their last 21 games when playing their third game on the road in a five-day stretch. Goalie Cam Talbot got the day off in the loss to the Lightning so he should be between the pipes again tonight. While he has a 3.55 Goals-Against-Average with an .872 save percentage in five home starts, he sports a 2.60 GAA with a .921 save percentage in nine starts on the road. The Wild have allowed at least four goals in two straight games — but they have then won 9 straight games after allowing at least four goals in two straight games. Minnesota has also won 9 of their last 12 road games when favored. New Jersey has lost 23 of their last 32 games at home after a game where at least seven combined goals were scored — and they have lost 14 of their last 18 home games after playing a game that finished Over the Total. The Devils have allowed at least three goals in four straight games — and they have lost 19 of their last 27 games after allowing at least three goals in four straight games. MacKenzie Blackwood should be in goal tonight with six starts under his belt since returning from an early-season injury. He has an unappealing 3.03 Goals-Against-Average so far this year. New Jersey returns home where they have lost 24 of their last 34 games — and they have lost 28 of their last 41 home games with the Total set at 6. The Devils have also lost 28 of their last 41 home games as an underdog. FINAL TAKE: Minnesota has won 37 of their last 53 games when favored. Look for them to end their losing streak tonight against a young Devils team still playing without an injured Jack Hughes. 25* NHL Game of the Month with the money-line on the Minnesota Wild (29) versus the New Jersey Devils (39). Best of luck for us — Frank.
