Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights achieved a place in the playoffs, but until the end of the regular season, the question stays of what place Bruce Cassidy's team will take. Everything could be more evident here. Vegas is still leading in the Pacific Division, but Edmonton is only two points ahead and Los Angeles by three. Playing with one of these competitors in the first round of the playoffs is still a pleasure. So, Vegas would undoubtedly like to keep their leadership in the division to play with Seattle or Winnipeg.
The team's results prove that the Knights will keep first in the division – eight wins in the last 11 matches, six of which they won in regular time. However, the Golden Knights returned to the game with Minnesota after two consecutive defeats – home 4-7 from Edmonton and away 3-4 at the end of overtime from San Jose. Vegas still rarely loses, being one of the most stable teams in this championship.
The Wild can also be called one of the most stable teams of this season. Moreover, even Kirill Kaprizov's injury did not unsettle Minnesota. Without their leader, Dean Evasson's team has even improved their results and, at the moment, has already reached second place in the summary standings of the Western Conference. If they win the upcoming game, they will be equal to Vegas. All this suggests that Minnesota cannot be underestimated in the Stanley Cup. The team's final place is still unclear – the Wild are first in the Central Division, but they are ahead of Dallas by only one point and Colorado by three.
Expert Betting Tips
As the game with Colorado showed, Minnesota has already grown to play on equal terms with opponents and beat them. However, it is hardly worth betting on the victory of the Wild in the upcoming game. Vegas is much more stable in this regular season than Colorado and, for example, has lost only 2 of the last 12 games. However, Minnesota can score points – Dean Evasson's team has not lost within 60 minutes for 11 games in a row. So, it's time to bet on a draw in the upcoming match – the probability of such an outcome here seems high.
