    That's what I'm leaning towards. wondering if Phoenix will come out strong tonight tho after their loss in calgary. half wondering about calgary now too as they're seeming to be getting hot at the moment.

    Fair points, but MIN is at home and CAL does not have the Sedins, Edler, et al. I'd also go with the safer bet to not get completely lit up in Backstrom.

    You know Vancouver is gonna pepper Smith but is that a bad thing? Smith's splits when OPP have 30+ shots: .950, when they have less than 30: .880. Phoenix has been giving up about 33 SPG on the road and a svg pct. of .909.

    Minny has a slightly lower save pct on the road at .906... no time to look at Backstrom's splits but you can see Smith is not a bad option.
