Vegas Golden Knights vs Minnesota Wild 3/21/2022 Picks Predictions Previews
Vegas at Minnesota, 8:00 PM ET, TVAS, BSN, BSWI, ATTSN-RM
Vegas: There is a problem in southern Nevada between gamblers and the hockey team. Yes, the club announced its injuries, but they really declare who is coming back until it’s almost too late to make the correct wager.
Just the other day, Jonathan Marchessault was declared in against the Florida Panthers, and although he contributed little on offense, his return balanced the other three lines and the Golden Knights went on to easily down the Panthers, 5-3.
The betting line went from Florida -115 all the way to -185 — the second-largest move of the season.
Now, Vegas’ injury list is shortening, but who is back. Look for Reilly Smith, Brayden McNabb and Alec Martinez at any time — like right before opening face-off.
However, All-Star defensemen and captain Mark Stone was just placed on the long-0term reserved list.
Meanwhile, VGK may have got lucky in regards to sinking goalie situation.

Robin Lehner wan never the true permanent replacement for the over-priced Marc-Andre Fleury, but Lehner is hurt and backup Laurent Brossoit owns (somehow) a 10-9-3 record despite a save percentage under 90 percent.
So VGK management called across town to the Henderson (AHL) Silver knights to try their goalie, Logan Thompson, and caught a break.
Thompson, out of Brock University in St. Catherines, Ontario, the centre of Canada’s Niagara Peninsula, has pushed on by winning two straight, including the victory over Florida.
“Push On” is (in Latin) the official motto of Brock. According to history, they were the final words from Sir Isaac Brock, the famous major general from the early 19th Century, for whom the school is named.
Thus, with VGK forward getting gealigning in their normal lines, the defense returning health, and a goalie the team and manage,mt see, to trut (although he is young), Vegas seeks to overtake Edmonton and gain home ice for the playoffs.
Yes, BGK is 3-8 ATS in L11, but those numbers do not reflect the current roster — so ignore them.
Minnesota: .Left wing Kirill Kaprizov continues to lead the Wild in scoring, but at least the club’s make-up as a defensive club could aid them should they continue on course to meet St. Louis in the first round of the playoffs.
Many handicappers lst the Pacific Division as the weakest, but I have the Central a full step below, so the close pennant race — off-balanced by a solid Colorado Avalanche side — makes their points totals of the middle-level clubs — STL, MIN, NSH, DAL and WGP –very misleading.
Minnesota does own a good record against VGK, especially in St. Paul, but a current 4-4 ATS run has concern written all over it. In other word, the Wild better start improving play during this fourth game of a 9-game home stand or they could miss the playoffs.
Prediction: a healthy Vegas is a happy one for bettors… GOLDEN KNIGHTS.
