Full detailed prediction read below
Minnesota Wild does not have the best regular season. Now the team from Saint Paul is only the twelfth in the West – respectively, the Bruce Boudreau team is not going to the playoffs at the moment. Minnesota Wild is good at moments, but unfortunately it’s just a splash of quality hockey.
We are not talking about any stability in the Wild’s game. The team can defeat the leader of the table in one day and a little later without a chance to lose from outsider. Nevertheless, the team is quite promising. Everything will come with the gained experience.
The team misses too much. And the second big problem is that Wild’s guests perform much worse than home – 15-7-4 and 9-15-2.
Perhaps quite eloquent is the fact that the top four Minnesota scorers are already age-old hockey players. All over 30 years old. In the end, the club has too old a line-up now, but to make a step forward you will have to part with even these leaders.
The team from Texas continues to chase St. Louis Blues, who ran ahead. This requires, first and foremost, a stable performance by Stars, and this is something the Sheriffs sometimes have problems with.
The team failed the start of the regular season. Last season the first link, consisting of Alexander Radulov, Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin, led the rivals to fear, but right now they’re too lame. Yeah, these trinity are the best scorers of the Texans, but they have 27 to 39 points, although each has participated in at least 50 games.
But the defense and the goalkeepers are carrying the whole team. Stars has a second defense in the league (one more goal conceded than Columbus). Anton Khudobin and Ben Bishop are probably the strongest pair of goalkeepers in the NHL. The statistics are excellent for both of them, so the main goalkeeper will be fresh at the crucial moments of the season.

Wild vs Stars Prediction
There’s no doubt that Dallas is burning with a desire to get even for a humiliating defeat less than a month ago. But they don’t have much stability. There was a great winning streak of their six games, but it happened almost a month ago. Since then, there have been no more than two winning matches by the Texans.
Minnesota, on contrary, is good: only two of the six games were lost. But Wild go on the road after six consecutive home games, and also to an opponent who is angry with the score of the last game.
We think that Dallas’ will to win today’s match will be stronger than Minnesota’s attacking effort and they will be able to take revenge.
Our prediction is the victory of Dallas Stars!
