(NHL) San Jose vs. Minnesota, 01/22/2021 8:00 PM, Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: -165.00 Minnesota (Home)
Result: Win
The Sharks are giving up 33 shots per game which ranks as the 7th highest in the NHL and now they face a young, hot team in Minnesota who is 3-1 on the season. As this season progresses older teams will suffer at the hands of sheer number of games in a short span. When on a road trip this will even be more apparent. Such is the case in this one as the Sharks are on a 8 game road trip living a covid life in hotels. This is not the easiest thing to do and it will show tonight as they face Minnesota in their first home game. The Wild will come out fast and furious with their young guns. Defensively the Wild are at 92% on the penalty kill. The Sharks are 2-2 but both wins have come via shoot outs and I simply do not see them winning this one as the youthfulness of the Wild will prevail! Take the WILD on the ML!
