Minnesota have not done well this season on offense and have scored less than three goals per game on average and this has made things difficult for them. The duo of Kirill Kaprizov and Mats Zuccarello have been involved in the majority of the offense with 30 goal contributions.
The defense has conceded over three goals per game this season. The goaltenders had a lot of work to do. Although they did decently, they still could not lower the deficit caused due to poor defense and poor offense.
Sharks vs Wild Betting Prediction
The San Jose have struggled this season with form and consistency. Their past record goes against them too, as they are 6-13 in their last 19 Sunday games. They will take inspiration from their last game and look to build over it.
The Wild are 6-1 in their last seven Sunday games and have done well at home. They have done well against teams from the Pacific division but have to be wary of their poor offense.
Though Minnesota have not played well, they are coming up with a win in the game and can put in a good performance in this game while keeping it close.
