Everybody seems to be making picks for Game 6, and those on my staff seem to be picking the Wild.
If you were silly enough to bet on sports, wouldn't you go that way, too?
The Wild have played 12 playoff games this season. In those 12 games, the road team has not won in regulation once. The only road victory in those 12 games occured when the Wild won in overtime at Colorado, long after establishing that Minnesota was the superior team.
So, yes, if you're going to pick a winner based on logic, you'd pick the Wild to win Game 6.
And the Blackhawks to win Game 7.
