9* Saturday NHL SJ/MIN
San Jose vs. Minnesota,
03/23/2013 14:00 EDT,
Score: 0 - 2
Money Line: -130 Minnesota
The Minnesota Wild host the San Jose Sharks on Saturday. Minnesota is coming off a 4-2 win over Detroit, while San Jose dropped their last game to Edmonton in a shootout, 4-3.
Minnesota enters this game having won four in a row overall, and five of six at home.
Devin Setoguchi has been the star of their current run, and he would love nothing more than to carry his current streak into this game against his former team.
Setoguchi is riding a five-game point streak, with six goals and eight points in those games.
San Jose would love to find a recipe for getting over their offensive woes. After scoring 29 times in winning their first seven games of the season, they have struggled to find the back of the net ever since.
The Sharks relied heavily on their power play in those early season games, but that unit has gone cold, converting on just 11 of their last 90 opportunities.
The Wild are 5-1 in their last six home games. The home team is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these teams, and the Sharks are 0-4 in their last four trips to the Xcel Energy Center. Take Minnesota.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
