This Monday night matchup will see the Minnesota Wild traveling to Nashville to take on the Predators. These teams know each other well as they are Central Division rivals out of the Western Conference. This will be the first time these teams have met in the 2018 season.
The Wild have had a rough start to the new season and have only picked up one win in four games. They have yet to pick up a road win and will be playing only their second game away from home. The Wild were a playoff team last year and will need to step to avoid falling behind further in the Central division standings and the Western Conference as a whole.
A lot of the Wild’s early struggles come from their inability to put the puck in the back of the net. They are only averaging 2.5 goals per game. This ranks in the bottom half of the National Hockey League at 21st. Their defense isn’t much better as they are allowing 3.2 goals per game, which ranks 19th. All in all the Wild need to produce more on the offensive side of the puck, especially when they are given the advantage through a power play.
The Predators have started the 2018 season strong and sit on top on the Central division with 8 points. They will be looking to extend their current win streak to 2 games, and will be facing a struggling Minnesota team.
Nashville only sit in 16th in goals per game with an average of 3.0. However, their defense has been rock solid and have emerged as the second best, allowing only 2.0 goals per game. The Predators will take advantage of a struggling Minnesota attack and will shut them down in this divisional matchup.
