Minnesota Wild vs. Arizona Coyotes: Do the guests have a chance?
Minnesota vs. Arizona: NHL match prediction (March 17, 2021)
"Minnesota" have won two previous matches against "Arizona" and will host the fight against the "Coyotes" on their ice again on March 17th. Will the hosts succeed in the meeting? - the answer will be found in our prediction.
"Minnesota Wild" are ranked second in the Western Division and have 35 points to their credit. The team has been in great shape for a long period of time and has now developed a streak to four wins. On their own ice, they dealt with "Vegas" twice, and in the previous two fights, they beat "Arizona" with a score of 4:0 and 4:1, respectively.
Even despite the fact that the "Wilds" were the first to concede in the last meeting, they still looked more active than their rival and again had a great final twenty minutes. As a rule, recently, Dean Evason's wards concede less than three goals per game, which makes them feel comfortable.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
"Arizona Coyotes" are outside the playoff zone and are in sixth place. The team shows unstable results and most often faces problems in the attack since both on their own ice and on the road they score no more than two goals per game on average. It should be noted that the "Coyotes" celebrated success only in five away matches out of 11.
Moreover, Rick Tocchet’s team is holding the fifth meeting in a row on the road, so they are probably not in the best physical shape. The "Coyotes" have poor realization of chances. They are currently one of the most underperforming clubs in the division.
"Minnesota" have developed a streak of up to four wins and will hardly stop there. The "Wild" are now doing everything well both in defense and in the attack, but "Arizona" have problems with creating and implementing chances throughout the season. The "Wild" had a great two previous matches against the "Coyotes" and did not allow the opponent to demonstrate anything in their own zone.
We think that the hosts will again be stronger, and the guests will score a maximum of two goals.
Our prediction is that "Minnesota" will win with odds of 1.82 on 1xbet.
