Two of the top three teams in the Western Conference collide Saturday night when the Minnesota Wild visit the Dallas Stars. The lonestar state has not been kind to the Wild, with Minny going just 3-20 in their past 23 games in Dallas.
Though the Wild have been impressive this season, they have faltered on the road with a 3-2-2 record away from Minnesota. The Wild picked up a 3-2 overtime win against the Carolina Hurricanes Thursday to start a four-game road trip.
The Stars are arguably the hottest team in the NHL, winning seven of their last nine with the Toronto Maple Leafs being their only losses (yeah, we can’t figure that out either). Tyler Seguin and Jamie Benn have fuelled the Stars offense, with Seguin tied for the lead-league in points and Benn second in goals.
