The Minnesota Wild at at the Pond, ready to take on the Anaheim Ducks for the third time this season. The previous two meetings were split, with a close 3-2 loss and closer 1-0 win.

Coming off a 4-0 shutout loss to the Los Angeles Kings, the Wild’s lineup has been in flux due to the league’s COVID-19 protocols. Forwards Nick Bonino and Nico Sturm will be returning tonight after coming off the protocol list on Sunday.

The two teams are both heavy on defense, but the Wild match that with significant shot volume, unlike the Ducks. Expect another tight game.
