Minnesota Wild vs Dallas Stars 2/8/2023 Expert Picks and Betting Tips

The Minnesota Wild travel to the American Airlines Center in Dallas to face off against the first-place Dallas Stars in a highly anticipated NHL Central Division showdown on Wednesday, February 8th. Despite their third-place standing with a 27-18-4 record and 58 points, the Wild trail the Stars by 10 points, but hold a strong 12-10-3 road record so far this season. With inconsistent play causing alternating winning and losing streaks, the Wild look to bounce back from a 2-3 road loss to the Arizona Coyotes on Monday, where Kirill Kaprizov opened the scoring with a goal assisted by Mats Zuccarello and Calen Addison, before Jonas Brodin added the final goal in the 2-1 defeat. 

On the season, Minnesota has put up a formidable offensive display with 149 goals, 252 assists, and a total of 401 points from 1,532 shots. Left-winger Kirill Kaprizov leads the charge with a team-high 28 goals and 32 assists for 60 points, while right-winger Mats Zuccarello follows closely with 19 goals, 30 assists, and 49 points.  

  • Minnesota is 6-3 SU in their last 9 matches with the Dallas Stars.
  • The Minnesota Wild are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.

With a strong 29-13-10 record and 68 points, Dallas retains the top spot in the Central Division, boasting a 15-8-1 home record so far this season. The Stars are eager for a consecutive home victory after ending a three-game losing streak with a thrilling 3-2 shootout victory over the Anaheim Ducks on Monday. Despite getting out to an early 2-0 lead, Dallas allowed the Ducks to tie the game at 2-2 in the final period, leading to an overtime period where both teams were unable to find the back of the net. However, the Stars emerged victorious in the shootout with a 2-1 score. 

Last night’s game also marked the 1000th match for Dallas’ team captain Jamie Benn, who celebrated the milestone with a victory over the Ducks. Benn, who has been working to bounce back from a rough performance last year, has recorded 19 goals, 25 assists, and 44 points in 51 games this season. Meanwhile, left-winger Jason Robertson has been the standout player for the Stars this season, with a team-leading 33 goals, 34 assists, and 67 points so far.
