Game 18 – Minnesota Wild @ Tampa Bay Lightning

MINNESOTA @ TAMPA BAY

Playing Toronto seemed to get Minnesota’s special teams back on track and Tampa is a team that has really struggled on the penalty kill (76.9%, 26th in the NHL) and not been terribly good on the power play either (17.6%, 21st in the NHL).  Through judicious pursuit of the charity point the Lightning have managed to remain above a point per game (6-4-5 record).

Bold Prediction – After their win over TB, the Wild realize they are 5-0 against the East and petition the NHL to switch conferences.
