The Red Wings are 24-8-3 in their last 35 games with Minnesota but the home team is 6-2 in the last 8 games in this series. The over has hit in the last 5 in this series as well. My pick is the Wild as the Wings have some key injuries and are just not on track. I will take the Wild at home as an underdog.
