Minnesota Wild came out on top in the last clash against Montreal Canadiens, winning with the score of 0-2 on 04/19/2022. One of the reasons behind the Wild’s triumph was the performance of Kevin Fiala. He was on the ice for 18:33 and ended the game with 1 goal and 1 assist to his account. Minnesota’s triumph may also be attributed to the team’s netminder. Cam Talbot was phenomenal and denied all shots towards his goal. Carey Price was between the sticks for the Canadiens and parried 28 of all the 30 shots he faced, but that proved insufficient for the win. There is a clear favorite when it comes to the latest five encounters, as Montreal Canadiens won 1 and the Minnesota Wild triumphed 4 times in the process.
