MINNESOTA v. NASHVILLE
Updating some stats I looked at a couple weeks ago:
Time spent behind – 378:46 (57%)
Time spent tied – 224:02 (33%)
Time spent with the lead – 67:15 (10%)
The Wild have trailed at some point in every game this season (they’ve had a lead in only 4 games). Another little note, of those 67 minutes, the Wild have lead by 2 goals for only 2:12 (against San Jose). That’s a ton of time where one mistake makes a whole lot of difference. It’s just not fun to play that way, and I’m sure all involved are getting tired of it.
Bold Prediction – Final margin of victory tonight will be greater than or equal to two goals (not going to pick a team, but whoever wins will win by at least two).
