The Vegas Golden Knights will meet with the Minnesota Wild in NHL action in the Xcel Energy Center, St. Paul, on Thursday, May 20, 2021, at 9:30 PM (EDT). The second game was won 3-1 by the Vegas Golden Knights, but the series will now be played in Minnesota, where the Wild already stole a game on the road. The Golden Knights were driven all season by their outstanding defense, which allowed only 2.1 goals per game. Only one goal was allowed in each of the first two games, demonstrating the defense’s superiority. Vegas is 2nd at 40-14 in the West Division.

Alec Martinez and Shea Theodore led the squad with 8.9 defensive point shares, but they were helped tremendously by starting goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who saved 63 of 65 shots so far and continues to thrive in the net, allowing only 1.9 goals per game. While the defense was outstanding in the first two games, the offense must improve. The Golden Knights only scored three goals in the first two matches of the series against the Wild, despite averaging 3.3 goals per game.

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Vegas’ previous 5 matches.
  • The Vegas Golden Knights are 2-6 SU in their last 8 matches against Minnesota.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Vegas’ last 7 matches this season.

Vegas Golden Knights vs Minnesota Wild Predictions 5/20/2021

The Wild pulled off a spectacular shock in Game One, winning 1-0 in overtime to assist them in splitting the first two games of the series. The Wild was led offensively by their younger scorers throughout the season. Kirill Kaprizov, a 23-year-old player, has 27 goals this season, while Joel Eriksson Ek and Kevin Fiala, both 24 years old, accounted for 39 goals this season. However, only Eriksson Ek reached the back of the net in the Wild’s opening two games, while the Wild had only two goals. Minnesota is 3rd at 35-16 in the West Division.

Although the offense struggled in the first two games, the defense was outstanding, allowing only three goals in total, including one shutout in the series opener. The team only permitted 2.8 goals per game, and it’s simple to understand why Carson Soucy, Matt Dumba, and Ian Cole all performed admirably in the first two games, while Cam Talbot was a brick in the first game, posting a shutout while stopping 42 shots.

  • The total went OVER in 9 of Minnesota’s last 13 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Minnesota’s last 6 matches against Vegas.
  • The total went OVER in 9 of Minnesota’s last 13 matches in the West Conference.

Vegas Golden Knights vs Minnesota Wild. The NHL pick for this game is the Vegas Golden Knights. If you follow the home team advantage, the Wild will have a better chance of winning when they return home. However, Vegas is a squad that performed admirably on the road and might match the Wild defense’s strength here. The Wild are expected to put up a bigger fight in this game, but they are outmatched on their ice. The Vegas Golden Knights will win to a predicted score of 3-2.
