Minnesota Wild has lost two games in a row. and they have a high order ahead of them tonight if they intend to stop sliding. The Wild hit the road to take on the red-hot Oilers, who won five games in a row and climbed to third place in the Pacific Division.
The Wild took down the Oilers 4-1 on December 7. Can Edmonton exact revenge tonight on his home turf?

I still don’t believe in the Minnesota Wild. Their high shooting rate and aggressive goal-scoring play concealed the subpar’s play of possession and created dangerous scoring opportunities. Shoot and save percentages tend to be more volatile, and eventually we might see some regression on how well they actually play.
Meanwhile, Mike Smith is back in the middle of the pipeline for the Oilers and he seems to be back in shape. He’s had three strong performances in a row, and will have one more tonight.
The most promising sign for the Oilers is that they are ranked 11th in terms of high-risk scoring chances in their last 25 games. While that’s not an amazing mark, it’s good enough to allow their powerful attack to come into play and generate victory. During the same time period, they ranked 4th in expected goals per 60 minutes (3.31), while Wild ranked 20th (2.72).
Tonight I’m going on a red-hot train.
Select: Oilers -105
