The Minnesota Wild and the Montreal Canadiens will both be gunning for a victory on Thursday when they meet at Bell Centre.

ABOUT THE WILD (5-7-2): Despite the team’s struggles, the duo of Eric Staal and Jason Zucker have begun to heat up offensively during the road trip. Staal has recorded a goal and two assists over the first two games of the trek to take over the team scoring lead with 11 points while Zucker scored twice against the Maple Leafs after notching an assist at Boston on Monday. Chris Stewart leads the team with six goals but is mired in an eight-game drought.

ABOUT THE CANADIENS (7-8-1): Charlie Lindgren made 29 saves against the Golden Knights to continue the strong start to his NHL career. The 23-year-old native of Minnesota has won each of his two starts this season in place of the injured Carey Price (lower body) and is 5-0-0 with one shutout, a 1.39 goals-against average and a .955 save percentage in five career contests. Montreal could face the Wild without Jonathan Drouin, who left the win over Vegas with an upper-body injury and was absent from Wednesday’s practice.

Oddsmakers opened the Canadiens as -144-moneyline favorites versus the Wild, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Montreal Canadiens will have revenge on their minds when they continue a six-game homestand Thursday against the Minnesota Wild. Montreal, which is seeking its fourth straight victory, hopes to return the favor after dropping a 6-3 decision in Minnesota last Thursday.

The Canadiens kicked off their string at Bell Centre on Tuesday with a 3-2 triumph over Vegas in which defenseman Jordie Benn recorded a goal and an assist for his first two-point performance since Dec. 13 while with Dallas. Montreal captain Max Pacioretty has been hot of late, collecting four goals and four assists during the six-game point streak he carries into Thursday’s contest. Minnesota is looking to halt a losing streak that reached three games with Wednesday’s 4-2 setback at Toronto. The Wild are just 2-4-1 away from home this season after dropping the first two contests of their four-game road trip, allowing nine goals in the process.

Last time out for Montreal, they were a 3-2 winner as they battled the Golden Knights at home. Moneyline bettors who got the Canadiens at -224 were rewarded, while the 5 combined goals moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Minnesota lost its last outing, a 4-2 result against the Maple Leafs on November 08. Bettors who backed the Maple Leafs at -130 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (6) sent PUSH bettors to the payout window.
