The Wild has won four games in a row, three by a goal and the last one by two. Minnesota has run through some decent teams during the stretch: at Anaheim, at San Jose, and then versus Calgary and Toronto. The Blackhawks fit right into that group.
Even so, Minnesota is just tied with Chicago and Dallas in the Central, looking up at Winnipeg, St. Louis and Nashville. The Wild’s strong point is the power play, where it converts at the sixth-best rate in the league and defends at a top-ten clip, too.
Eric Staal is approaching 30 points and Jason Zucker has 25, the latter leading the team in scoring and the former in assists.
The ‘Hawks have won four in a row in their own right, three straight home wins against subpar opponents before a big 5–1 win in Winnipeg on Thursday.
Corey Crawford has given up just six goals in those last four games. He had a shutout in Winnipeg until the third period when the Blackhawks were already up big. Chicago got three goals in the first and a fourth in the second, all from different scorers. Michael Kempny became the fifth scorer in the third period to make it 5–1.
Chicago might be on the run we’ve been waiting for it to get on. This game could prove to be a big on in the Central Division between two outsiders that are very capable of getting into it and proving dangerous in the playoffs.
NHL Betting Trends:
- CHI are 3-12 in their last 15 vs. Central.
- CHI are 60-25 in their last 85 Sun. games.
- Over is 5-1-3 in the last 9 meetings.
