Minnesota Wild

It’s been more than a week since the stunning loss to the Jets but the Wild can still feel the sting of the upset. Back in the same place on Wednesday night, the second-best team in the Central will aim to be more assertive in order to avoid the same fate they had the last time they were in Winnipeg. The defeat was huge for Minnesota as it snapped a previous six-game winning streak. It was a momentum spoiler to say the least but the team has since started to recover, evinced by their last two games where they took down Carolina and Detroit respectively. Another win streak, albeit in its early stages, is on the line again against the Jets.Perhaps Minnesota has already learned its lesson; fans can expect a different kind of energy from their team this time around.  

Players to watch: K. Kaprizov LW (G 22, A 35, PTS 57), M. Zuccarello RW (G 14, A 32, PTS 46), K. Fiala LW (G 14, A 23, PTS 37).

Winnipeg Jets

The Jets pulled the rug from under the Wild the last time the teams met in the former’s home turf. The Jets were +142 underdogs in that game but they made sure to make a statement by keeping Minnesota scoreless the whole game. Winnipeg got the underdog tag anew in Wednesday’s clash and the team is looking to pull off the same performance they had eight days ago. They are aware of the Wild’s revenge intentions; this will prompt interim coach Dave Lowry to prepare and execute an even better game plan against still one of the top teams in their division. 

Players to watch: K. Connor LW (G 26, A 24, PTS 50), M. Scheifele C (G 14, A 22, PTS 36), P. Dubois C (G 20, A 15, PTS 35).
