Minnesota Wild vs St. Louis Blues Prediction

St. Louis finished the season with a 49-22-11 record for 109 points. They averaged 3.77 goals per game, which was third-best in the league, and 2.91 goals against, which was 11th. Despite asking for a trade in the off-season, Vladimir Tarasenko led the team in scoring as he notched 34 goals and 48 assists for 82 points. Ville Husso emerged as the number one goalie Over Jordan Binnington. Husso went 25-7-6 with a 2.56 GAA and a .919 Save %. Husso is the likely Game 1 starter.

The Minnesota Wild finished the season with a 53-22-7 record for 113 points. They averaged 3.72 goals per game, which was fifth in the league, and 3.04 goals against per game, which was 16th. The Wild were led by Superstar Kirill Kaprizov. Kiril "The Thrill" led the team in goals (47), Assists (61), and points (108). Minnesota solidified their goaltending at the deadline by acquiring Marc-Andre Fleury. Both he and Cam Talbot played very well down the stretch, it will be interesting to see who Dean Evason goes within this important Game 1.

These teams met three times during the season with the Blues winning all three games. St. Louis won 6-4, in Minnesota, in January and added 4-3 and 6-5 overtime home wins, in April. Those games were very entertaining and fast-paced as both teams like to play an up-tempo style of hockey. The interesting matchup to watch in this game and series will be St. Louis' second-best Power Play against Minnesota's 27th worst penalty kill.

The Blues notched a Power Play goal in each of the three meetings on the season. The Blues ended the season with 11 Power Play goals over their final 10 games. The Wild took the third-most PIMs in the league this season and with the animosity between these teams, you can expect more of the same. I think this is going to be the most entertaining series of the first round, I expect plenty of goals, beginning in Game 1.
