Both teams are coming into this Saturday matchup playing well. The Wild have won five of their last six while the Kings have won four straight.
The Minnesota Wild are playing phenomenal hockey. With their gritty 3-2 win over the Sharks last Thursday they find themselves sitting currently at 7th place. This is the first time in exactly 3 months (December 6th) the Wild have found themselves in playoff contention as that win catapulted them four spots into 7th. Those four teams are just behind Minnesota with 74 points each: Vancouver, Nashville, Winnipeg and Arizona.
“There’s obviously still a lot of games left, but to know you’re over that wild-card line, it’s great,” center Alex Galchenyuk had to say after Thursday’s win in San Jose.
The Wild will look to continue their march up the standings with just 15 games left in the regular season. Minnesota is led, in goals, by Zach Parise who has 25, 12 of which has come off the powerplay. Defensemen Ryan Suter leads the team with 48 assists.
It is important to note that the teams’ second leader in points, Eric Staal, is not traveling with the team due to a death in the family. Thoughts and prayers are with him as his Wild play their second of three games in a California road trip on Saturday.
Los Angeles Kings
While the Los Angeles Kings are far out of contention for the cup, that hasn’t stopped them from enjoying their roll as spoilers. With Spring turning the Eastern part of the country to slush and mud teams have expected to come to California for some sun and easy points. At Staples center however, this has not been the case.
With wins over the Pittsburgh Penguins, Vegas Knights and most recently in a shootout with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Kings have found a fire and they’re doing so by keeping pucks out of the net. Only allowing three goals total in their last four the goalie play of both Jonathan Quick and Cal Petersen the Kings have made coming to California less of a vacation for other teams.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Minnesota are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
- Minnesota are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against Los Angeles.
- Los Angeles are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games against an opponent in the Central Division division.

With all that being said we are gonna get the Wild at a great number here despite them playing some of the best hockey of the season. Yes the Kings are also on the upswing but that can only go so far on a team playing out a season condemned. Look for the Wild to get ahead early here and secure some much needed points with so little games left.
