Anaheim Ducks vs. Minnesota Wild, 8PM ET (View Matchup)
The home team has won 25 of the last 33 meetings in this series and the Ducks are 0-4 in their last 4 games at Minnesota. My pick for this one goes with the Wild as this game is pretty even, so you have to go with the home team. Both need this win in the playoff race, but Minnesota needs it a little more and is at home, so I like the Wild.
