Puck Line Pick
The Bruins seemingly had one of the longest All-Star break among every team, as they finally played their first post-break game on Friday night. They’ll jump right back into it on Saturday, taking on the Wild. Following a bit of a rough stretch, Boston has turned it around recently, going 3-1 over their last four and 6-2-1 over their last nine. The Bruins have also been solid on the road (13-8-3), and they’re going against a team they’ve already beat once this season (albeit in overtime).
Over Under Pick
Meanwhile, the Wild are also playing better of late. Following a stretch that saw them go 1-5-1 (with that lone victory coming in overtime), they’re now 3-1 straight since the middle of January. Unfortunately, we’re not sure if we can take a whole lot out of that active stretch, as Minnesota hasn’t seen the ice since January 22nd. While they’re 14-6-4 record leaves some room for optimism, they’re also only 8-17-3 as underdogs this season.
