Tonight OTT are on a B2B where they lost to the Blackhawks in CHI. Tonight in net is Talbot in net for MIN and Gustavsson for OTT. Talbot is 5-2 with a 2.55 GAA and a 91.2 SV%. Gustavsson is 2-1 with a 2.24 GAA and a 93.2 SV%. MIN has gone to OT in 4 games and OTT 1 game. MIN is also coming off a loss to the Avs in Colorado. I am looking for MIN to bounce back here tonight. Every person on MIN team has notched at least 1 point this season. That is a lot of production for the Sens to handle. Gustavsson has been very good for OTT this season but MIN is one of the best teams in the Central Division. With OTT being on a B2B and on the road this favors MIN. For our player highlight tonight we will look at Kirill Kaprizov. Kaprizov finished last season with 51 points and won the Calder Trophy. He finished the season with 157 shots on goal for an average of 2.85 per game. This season he has 6 points in 8 games and is averaging 3.25 shots per game. He has been over 2.5 SOGs in 7 of the 8 games he has played this year. OTT is giving up an average of 33 SOGs per game. Look for Kaprizov to get a minimum of 3 SOGs tonight in this matchup.
