NHL Tips: Vegas Golden Knights @ Minnesota Wild (Friday, 0000 GMT)

Vegas Golden Knights will be looking to make it three wins in succession and extend their lead at the top of the Pacific Division when they travel to take on Minnesota Wild. The Golden Knights have won 10 of their last 12 games in the NHL and they come into this clash on the back of a 3-2 overtime win over Edmonton Oilers with Shea Theodore scoring the winner inside three minutes of the extra period. Minnesota currently occupy fourth place in the Central Division, and they have not given up hope of making the play-offs. Their recent form has seen them win six of their last eight matches. They head into the clash with the Knights on the back of a 5-4 overtime success away at Anaheim Ducks with Kevin Fiala grabbing his second goal of the game to secure the win. These two have already met twice this season with both teams claiming a victory each. The Knights took the first game on December 17 with Chandler Stephenson, Theodore and Tomas Nosek scoring in a 3-2 win. Minnesota got their revenge on February 11 with Joel Eriksson Ek, Jared Surgeon, Fiala and Zach Parise all getting on the score sheet in a 4-0 success. The Golden Knights will still be smarting from that defeat, so we are backing them with the point spread to take a 2-1 win in the series.
