Minnesota vs San Jose: how will the guests fix?
On January 25, Minnesota will again host San Jose, and our site will make a prediction about this event.
Minnesota is looking great at the start of this season and has won four victories out of five matches, having been defeated with a minimum gap only from Anaheim (0:1). By the way, in the next match, the "The Wild" smashed the score and outplayed the "Ducks" (3:2). The previous match against San Jose also proceeded in an equal fight but as a result ended in a score of 4:1, and there were two empty-net goals.
After the first period, goalkeeper Kaapo Kahkonen had to enter the game, as Cam Talbot was slightly injured. But, as it turned out, everything is all right with the Canadian goalkeeper, and in the next match he will probably go onto the ice.
Upcoming Predictions for Hockey
First, San Jose tried to play open hockey and to score as much as possible, but lost control and suffered two defeats. In the last match against St. Louis, the ''Sharks'' played more disciplined in defense, and this game gave positive results. They celebrated success in a shootout with a score of 2:1.
However, the same problems that were chasing the ''Sharks'' throughout the whole last season remain, and they cannot play stable and confidently in their own zone. It is interesting to see if Bob Boughner will find a way out of this situation, but so far everything looks not so promising.
We think that after the closed game that San Jose demonstrated in the first match against Minnesota, the ''Sharks'' will try to play more open hockey in order to break ''The Wild'' defense line more than once.
The guests are able to do this, because in the opening matches they demonstrated that they can score, and even managed to score four goals against St. Louis. Based on this, we offer to bet on individual total.
Our bet is San Jose's individual total over 2.5 goals for 2.02 on 1xbet.
