MINNESOTA @ VANCOUVER
Last time the Wild traveled to Vancouver they were finishing off a 5-game road trip on which they had already gone 0-4.
This time they are finishing off a 5-game road trip on which they have already gone 3-1 (including a win in Calgary where they had won one of their last 17). I’m much less fed up this time around.
Bold prediction – The last time Eric Belanger didn’t win at least half of his faceoffs in a game was the Wild’s last visit to Vancouver (a streak of 24 games). He avenges that tonight, winning 60% of his draws.
