I would like to predict not a simple win over Blues with a score 4:3 in OT (or SO). We should stay far from penalty box and be persistently productive including lines #2;#3 and #4 and defensemen too.

You ask a lot. 😁

Probably good for us that the Blues don't take a lot of penalties so we can play more 5 on 5.

I know it's a long ways away but I fear a repeat of the goalie situation come PO time.
If the Wild say they're going to keep Fleury fresh by playing Gustav as much as possible, Then play him against the so-called tougher teams too.
Starting Fleury against them mostly will only burn him out due to mental and physical stress.
Let him have possibly a less involved night now and then with teams we might get up ahead by a few goals to take the pressure off.

I believe last year to run with Fleury late and in the PO's was all BG saying that's why we got him.
