The Minnesota Wild will meet with the Vegas Golden Knights in NHL action in T-Mobile Arena, Paradise, NV, on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, at 10:00 PM (EDT). Minnesota was led all season by their defense, which allowed just 2.8 goals per game. The entire team performed admirably with Ian Cole and Carson Soucy leading the team’s defense and Cam Talbot in net, saving all 42 shots for an overtime shutout win in Game One. Minnesota is 3rd at 35-16 in the NL West.

Although the defense was able to lead the team to win in the first game, the offense suffered greatly. Only Joel Erikkson Ek, who has 19 goals this season, scored the game-winning goal in overtime. Kirill Kaprizov, a 24-year-old phenom, is expected to find the back of the net in the upcoming match, as his pace, as well as his 27 regular-season goals, power the team’s offense.

  • The total went OVER in 9 of Minnesota’s last 12 matches.

  • The Minnesota Wild is 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches against Vegas.

  • The total went OVER in 7 of Minnesota’s last 10 matches this season.

Minnesota Wild vs Vegas Golden Knights Predictions 5/18/2021

The Golden Knights were one of the strongest teams in the NHL this year, winning 40 games and averaging 3.3 goals per game. The Minnesota team made the Golden Knights’ offense look luckless in the first game, shutting them out in regulation and overtime.

Marc-Andre Fleury made 29 saves and only allowed a goal in overtime as the Wild were defeated 1-0, while Alec Martinez and Shea Theodore, who combined for 8.9 defensive point shares this season, were able to keep the Wild off the board.
