Minnesota vs Chicago: prediction for the NHL preseason match
The Minnesota Wild lost the first two preseason games, but then chalked up two victories over Colorado (3:1) and St. Louis (4:3 OT). Kirill Kaprizov appeared in the game against the Avalanche and gave two assists and scored a goal.
Dean Evason chooses to play open hockey, and his charges scored quite a lot. Even in the preseason, they stick to open attacking play, which looks very exciting. The Wild definitely aim for the playoffs this year, and judging by their current form, they should be able to easily achieve that goal.
The Chicago Blackhawks didn't strengthen their roster and parted ways with several key players in the offseason. After losing the first two preseason games, the Blackhawks triumphed over St. Louis (5:1) and defeated Detroit in a bitter struggle with a score of 6:4.
The Blackhawks continue to experience problems on the defensive, which they compensate for with a powerful attacking line and excellent forwards. However, the results of the past years show, that Chicago can't keep up with the leaders of their division.
In the last 2 games, Minnesota scored more than 2 goals.
In the last 5 games, Minnesota scored in the second period.
Minnesota look stronger than Chicago at the moment. The Wild have better teamwork on the defensive and they always try to cover the shots. Moreover, the Wild won the last two home games. We believe that Minnesota are in better form and should win.
Our prediction - Minnesota to win
Prediction: Minnesota to win

In each of the last two games, Minnesota scored three goals. Chicago almost always concede a lot, so we suggest betting on the hosts' individual total.
