The Wild on the other side of things will be looking to continue on with their mightily impressive season, and they should like their chances here of closing the gap on the division leading Vegas Golden Knights.
The Arizona Coyotes cannot be feeling great coming into the third game of the series, as they have been collectively out-scored by Minnesota in the first two games 8-1 and there is no real apparent reason why things should change here outside of the Coyotes showing up with some serious motivation.
They were a little bit unlucky that they ran into a hot Cam Talbot in that last loss, as he was able to pick up the second star of the game in that win stopping 21 of the 22 shots Arizona fired his way.
They may be in for another rough game in front of goal as well with Kaapo Kahkonen slated to pick up the start here with the Finish goaltender coming into this game with stellar stats including a 2.19 GAA and a .922% save percentage.
The Coyotes will counter with Antti Raanta who is a bit hit or miss, however what I have seen of him so far I have not been overly impressed and some of his stats back that up, as he enters with a 3.35 goals against average and it is looking like the loss of Darcy Kuemper was critical here during the stretch run for Arizona.
The Minnesota Wild have put plenty of NHL fans on notice with their recent run of form winning 11 of their last 14 games which even included a recent 2 game sweep of the impressive Vegas Golden Knights.
A lot of the success the Wild are having is because of their budding young left-winger Kirill Kaprizov, as the 23 year old Russian has already gotten 10 goals and 14 assists in just the first 24 games.
The other reason for success though, is the depth, with this team having 11 different players with at least 10 points this season they really can hit you on all 4 lines making them extremely dangerous and likely not a team many of the top dogs want to play early in the playoffs.

Free Arizona Coyotes vs. Minnesota Wild NHL Prediction:
Minnesota certainly has had their success in front of net so far this series and I do not think that will stop here, as they are deserved favorites against this Coyotes team. The Wild, though, do not look like very good bets at -200, as I firmly believe we are getting far better value on the under, as Minnesota could fall off in terms of efficiency and I don’t see Arizona running up a huge goal tally.
The return of Kaapo Kahkonen in net also worries me a bit for the Coyotes attacking players, as they are unlikely to have success against Kaapo if they had no luck getting anything past Cam Talbot.
