Vegas Golden Knights vs. Minnesota Wild. The NHL Pick for this contest is Minnesota Wild.. Although the Minnesota Wild will be without their top scorer, Left-winger Kirill Kaprizov, due to an upper-body injury, the team has shown they can still perform well without him. With home-ice advantage and a supportive crowd behind them, the Wild look to come out strong and dominate the Vegas Golden Knights in Monday’s match-up, aiming to split the back-to-back games. The prediction is a 4-2 win for the Minnesota Wild.
