The Line: St. Louis Blues / Minnesota Wild --- Over/Under: See the Latest Odds
The Wild look to keep rolling after their win against the Hawks last night as they head into St. Louis to battle the Blues.
The Wild look for their third win in a row as they head into St. Louis on Saturday night in what is a show down of two of the best teams in the west and a preview of what could be a first round playoff match up later this year. The Wild are playing in a back to back after getting a win last night but with so much depth they are going to be a tough out every night of the week and the Blues know they are going to have to play a solid game if they're going to earn the two points. Devan Dubnyk is expected to get the start as he will go up against Jake Allen who responded nicely his last time out earning a shutout.

The Blues and Wild sport identical 7-2-1 marks heading into tonight's tilt which makes things even more interesting as they are not only division rivals, and employ the same game plan, they are virtually identical across the board right now. St. Louis is coming off a first round playoff exit at the hands of the Wild so you can be sure they'll be ready to make amends and while in the long run I do think the Wild are more equipped for a deep playoff run I think the home side is in the better position here. Minny is coming off a game last night and I think the Blues at home are the better play.
