Chicago vs Minnesota: prediction for the NHL preseason match
On October 10, Chicago lock horns with Minnesota in the NHL preseason match. What to expect from this fixture? Our answer is in the prediction below.
The Chicago Blackhawks played three away games in a row. First, they crushed St. Louis with a score of 5:1. Goaltender Subban gave a nearly perfect performance. Then the Blackhawks confidently won against Detroit (6:4). Toews and Hagel each gave three assists.
In the third away match, the Blackhawks lost to Minnesota in overtime (2:3). They will be looking to get revenge in today's game.
The Minnesota Wild got off to a terrible start in the preseason. In the first two matches, the team suffered devastating defeats from St. Louis (2:6) and Colorado (4:6). Goaltenders Talbot and Kähkönen were far from their best. The Wild recorded their first victory at home in the return game against Colorado (3:1). Forward Kaprizov had a superb game and participated in all three goals.
In the following two games at home, the Wild defeated St. Louis (4:3 OT) and Chicago (3:2 OT).
In 3 head-to-head games out of 4, the teams failed to score more than one goal in the first period.
In 3 out of 4 head-to-head games, Minnesota opened the scoring.
Minnesota have gained momentum at home and are now fully prepared to face their opponents away. Chicago show average results, and the home court is not much of a help to them.
