- This ice hockey betting tip comes from the NHL and the match between Minnesota Wild (35-29-7) and
- Columbus Blue Jackets (32-28-10).
- Although Minnesota have lost their previous 4 in a row, the wild are now back at home and can put the the recent
- 4-game road trip behind them, they have a 4 game homestand now and will look to return to winning ways.
- The Wild aren't the only team struggling with form though, Columbus have only won one of their last 10, ruining
- their chances of a top 8 finish.
- I believe this self-destruction will continue for the remainder of the season, including this saturday evening.
- One key reason for the Blue Jackets poor run, is Rick Nash's (their captain and best player) failure to score in 11
- games, his worst run since his rookie season.
- If he fails to perform it removes a huge threat from Columbus' game and will make it much easier for the Wild.
- Minnesota struggled to score in their recent run of poor form, but Cal Clutterbuck has scored in all 3 games
- versus columbus this season and will look to be a serious threat once again to give the Wild the advantage.
- Another Minnesota player who enjoys playing against Columbus is Nicolas Backstrom, who is 7-3-0 vs
- Columbus with a 2.03 goals against average, which should put the Wild in good stead for this encounter.
- This compares to 3 consecutive loses for Steve Mason in visits to Minnesota as goaltender, which will be
- detrimental to his confidence.
- Both teams have no injuries to their front line players so they should be free to pick strong lines for Saturdays
- game, this favours the Wild who over the season have more wins than Columbus.
- I believe the Wild will receive a huge boost returning to their home crowd on Saturday, whilst Columbus will
- continue to perform below par and fail to get points.
- I believe the Wild will come through this one by a single goal in a low scoring game.
