The Columbus Blue Jackets travel to Minnesota to take on the Wild. JT Miller breaks down the game and shares his picks.

Columbus Blue Jackets vs Minnesota Wild Prediction: Back the Wild in St. Paul

This hockey team in St. Paul Minnesota is about to get dangerously good heading into the playoffs if things play out the way they are hoping, I believe they will. Their offensive prowess is elite and they put up goals in bunches; they have had little dry spots here and there but all teams do and they tend to really show out on home Ice. They were struggling to keep pucks out of the net heading towards the deadline and knew they had to make a move to get some help on the backend if they really wanted to make a push this season.

Columbus Blue Jackets vs Minnesota Wild Prediction

They went and got a future hall of fame netminder Marc-Andre Fleury and tonight is his first start for the Wild. The players know that the team, management, ownership, and all others along those lines are backing them and are basically pushing their chips in making a move like that here. I love it and I think they can be dangerous in the playoffs if they continue to build form and things settle in nicely with the new man between the pipes.

I am riding the guys with the motivation here that are fighting for a playoff spot and want to show out for their new netminder, and I can assure you the guy who is now supposed the be the #1 for a cup contending team wants to do so as well. Fade Columbus on the back-to-back here; goals should flow as they always do but I do not like the full game total at 6.5 with Fleury in net. I am looking for things to happen early and the Wild to win this one. It is juicy and I am not touching that money line straight so here is how I am laying it.
