Minnesota Wild vs Colorado Avalanche / NHL – The regular season is in its finish and we expect interesting battles, both for leading positions and those are first to qualify for the play-off.

Minnesota Wild vs Colorado Avalanche begins 20.03.2019 at 01:00 CET
After weak results achieved in the last month Minnesota’s situation got very complicated and now even the play-off has become questionable. Although the Wild have just one points fewer than 8th-placed Arizone it isn’t much likely to qualify for the play-off if they continue to play like they did recently. Out of last eight games Minnesota won just two. It is interesting that of those two wins was won against leading Tampa Bay Lightning away by sound 3-0.
It was a huge surprise given that the Lightning is by far the best team in the NHL and very rarely losses at home. However, Minnesota failed to repeat similar performances in following games and they lost three times in a row. Out of last two games they won one and lost the other game. They firstly won New York Rangers and then lost to the Islanders in the previous round. Minnesota played both games at home where they have plenty of problems since they lost even 10 out of last 12 games.
This is the last chance for Colorado to join the race for the 8th place, the last that lead to the play-off. If they win they would close in on Colorado to just one point and two to 8th-placed Arizona, which gives them realistic chance to qualify for the play-off by the end of regular season. The Avalanche plays fairly variably and cannot win several games in a row. They played four previous games at home but didn’t use in full the easy schedule.
They won two and lost the same number of games. Their schedule in the coming period is far more demanding given fact that will play next four games on road. Around mid-February they won three away games in a row and thanks to that they improved their position in the standings. Still, the winning streak didn’t last for long and they suffered defeats in three previous games played outside their arena. Colorado coach cannot count on four injured players for match with Minnesota.
Minnesota Wild vs Colorado Avalanche PICK
The two teams played their first head-to-head at the beginning of season and then Colorado won in front of its fans by sound goal difference. After that they met two more times and Minnesota won again. This is the last chance for the home team to improve its performances at home. Colorado lost three previous away games and that is why we give an advantage to Minnesota.
