Cappers Analysis:

Dan Kaiser: nhl 2

The Minnesota Wild one game one of the series but have dropped the next two and will need a win here to force a game five. The offense is led by Kevin Fiala with three goals, and Eric Staal has added four helpers. As a team, they are putting up just two goals a game and on the defensive end, they are giving up 2.33 goals. On special teams, they are scoring on 11.8 percent of their power play opportunities and killing off 80 percent of their penalties.

The Vancouver Canucks will try to close out this series with a third straight win. The offense is led by Brock Boeser with two goals and Quinn Hughes has added four helpers. As a team, they are putting up 2.33 goals a game and on the defensive end, they are giving up just two goals a game. on special teams, they are scoring on 20 percent of their power play opportunities and they are killing off 88.2 percent of their penalties.

After a game one shutout the Canucks have bounced back and won the next two games by a combined score of 7-3. These have been tight scoring affairs and with the series on the line, there is no reason for that to change.

Ricky Tran: Ricky's NHL **PUNISHER** - Wild vs Canucks

Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.

Key Trends:
- The under is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings in Minnesota.
- The Canucks goalie is coming off a 27 save shutout yesterday.
- The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings.

Jazz Ray: **NHL Barn Burner - GAME OF THE NIGHT

Been tough to find goals in this series! The wild have lost their spark an just trying to grind it out which means they won't be pounding goals in. This is a must win for the wild and there only shot is keeping it low scoring.

 

Best of luck!
