St. Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild Predictions

Score Prediction Wild 3 Blues 2

It's not the side that interests me here, as this is another one of those games that we've seen across the league in the past week or so that has two teams battling it out for a playoff position/seeding – Minnesota is just a point behind second place in the West – and defense takes priority.

The East division has seen plenty of 1-0 and 2-1 games of late, and that Montreal/Calgary 2-1 game on Monday probably fits this specific scenario even better. Montreal hasn't secured a playoff spot like the Wild have, and with Minnesota scoring four-plus goals in five straight games does make this play tough to hit “submit” on, but Minnesota's been beating up on Arizona, San Jose, and LA in those last seven games, after losing 3-2 to this Blues team in OT prior to that run. A 3-2 score is what I'm expecting again.
