ESPN SCORES NHL Pick Minnesota Wild vs. Boston Bruins
The Bruins come into the game after 2 full days of rest following their previous encounter,on the other hand the Wilds are continuing on the road without any rest after their game against the Canedians which was yesterday. This fact alone gives the Bruins a huge advantage over the Wild. So, even thought the Wilds have a terrific record at the TD Garden the circumstances are not in their favor. The Bruins of late also seem to be playing better than the Wild beating strong teams like the Flames, so expect the Bruins to walk away with this one.
