Prediction

The Red Wings have been up and down this season and are only 4-3-2 at home losing 5 of their last 6 games in Pitt. The Wild are having a great start of the season and have been insane on the road as they have won 10 of 12 games away from home. The Pens beat the Wild twice last season but things are looking different now so go with Minnesota to steal another win on the road.
