NHL Wednesday: Peterson picks Anaheim Ducks vs Minnesota Wild, Buffalo Sabres vs Pittsburgh Penguins
Anaheim Ducks @ Minnesota Wild, 5:30 pm EDT
If there is one thing we know about the Minnesota Wild and the Anaheim Ducks, it's that few pucks ever find the back of the net when these 2 clubs meet. The Under (5.5) has cashed in on 9 of the past 10 meetings, including Monday night in Minnesota when the Wild eked out a 2-1 victory at home. The Minnesota Wild continue to prove they're the better club, but the victories don't come easy and they sure aren't pretty. Take the Under and play it with confidence.
PICK: Under 5.5 (-120)
Buffalo Sabres @ Pittsburgh Penguins, 8:00 pm EDT
Despite struggling with the lackluster New Jersey Devils recently, Pittsburgh is 7-3 in their last 10 and will fully embrace this opportunity to drown a sinking Buffalo club that can't seem to string together anything positive this season. Having already dominated Buffalo twice recently, 3-0 & 5-2, expect the Pittsburgh Penguins to pull ahead early and never look back.
PICK: Pittsburgh Penguins -1.5 (-110)
