Minnesota Wild Fantasy Spin

Alex Stalock made 40 saves on 42 shots to help the Wild to a 3-2 victory in San Jose on Thursday night. The 32-year old was cool and collected in the crease against the Sharks, making tough saves look easy and allowing the Wild, who never trailed, to establish a 3-1 lead in the second period. Stalock has been impressive lately, winning six of his last seven starts, allowing 15 goals on 214 shots (.930 save percentage) in that span. Overall in 2019-20, the St. Paul, MN native has authored a 20-10-4 record with a 2.58 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage.

Los Angeles Kings Fantasy Spin

Jonathan Quick was instrumental in his 36-save shutout to lead the Kings to a 1-0 shootout victory over the Maple Leafs on Thursday night. The 34-year old put on an absolute clinic at the Staples Center on Thursday night. No amount of words could properly illustrate his body of work against Toronto, so I invite you to search for the highlights of this game. In fact, both goaltenders were perfect in this contest, with each earning shutouts with the game progressing to a shootout. Quick however had the upper hand over his counterpart, allowing just one goal on four attempts. The shutout marks the veteran’s first shutout of the season and the 52nd of his career. The two-time William M. Jennings trophy winner has now won four of his last five appearances, allowing just seven goals in that span, improving his season mark to 15-22-4 with a 2.83 goals-against average and a .903 save percentage.

Our Prediction

The under is 7-3-1 in the last 11 meetings between these two teams at Staples Center and is 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams overall. The under is also 8-2-1 in the Wild’s last 11 games versus Western Conference opponents, is 14-6-3 in their last 23 games as a favorite and is 5-2 in their last seven games when their opponent allowed two goals or fewer in its previous game. On the other side, the under is 7-1 in the Kings’ last eight games versus Central Division opponents, is 34-16-3 in their last 53 games overall and is 16-5 in their last 21 games coming off a win.

Saturday NHL Prediction: Wild/Kings UNDER 5.5
