St. Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild Predictions 4/8/2023


Due to their inability to generate much of an offensive effort against the Penguins on the road on Thursday night, Minnesota lost for the third time in a row.


The Wild are third in the Central Division heading into this contest with a record of 44-24-10, 2 points behind the Stars and Avalanche for first place.


Minnesota averages 2.90 goals per game, which ranks 25th in the nation. The Wild rank third in goals against this season with 2.65 goals allowed per game.


Minnesota converts 21.7% of their opportunities when they have the man advantage, ranking 15th in power play success.


As they successfully handle 81.2% of their shorthanded situations this season, the Wild are ranked 11th in penalty killing.


Minnesota’s offense looked uninspired in their match against the Penguins, and that ultimately cost them the victory as they were defeated on the road.


The Wild were fortunate to trail by just one goal after 20 minutes of play as they were routinely outshot 19-5 in the opening stanza of play.


In the second quarter, Minnesota had a 13-5 edge in shots on goal, but they were outscored 1-0 and trailed 2-0 at the break.


  • The total went OVER in 12 of Minnesota’s last 17 matches against St. Louis.
  • The Minnesota Wild is 8-3 SU in their last 11 matches at home.
  • The Minnesota Wild is 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches at home against St. Louis.

St. Louis Blues vs Minnesota Wild. The NHL pick for this game is the Minnesota Wild.


Kirill Kaprizov’s return to the lineup for this game after missing a month due to a lower-body injury sustained March 8 against Winnipeg must be viewed as a blessing for Minnesota.


The Wild, who are a below-average team on the attacking end of the ice, missed him when he was out of the lineup because he is a superior offensive force. Although St. Louis played respectable hockey 


lately, the reality is that at this moment, their main motivation is pride. The Blues defeated the Rangers at home on Thursday night, but it was against a Rangers squad that was playing on two consecutive nights.


St. Louis is a.500 team on the road, finishing 19-19-1, but Minnesota will be more driven to win this game because they are still vying for at least one of the top two slots in the Central Division and home ice advantage.


Give Minnesota the advantage because they win at home and especially now that Kaprizov is back. The Minnesota Wild will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
