Ducks-Wild stream: Monday’s NHL on NBCSN matchup

NBCSN’s coverage of the 2020-21 NHL season continues with Monday’s matchup between the Anaheim Ducks and Minnesota Wild. Ducks-Wild stream coverage begins at 7 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.

After each played on Saturday, these clubs will meet for the fifth of eight times this season in the first of a two-game set. The next game for each team is on Wednesday night (also on NBCSN). Minnesota dominated the February meetings, outscoring Anaheim 8-2.

Minnesota has been one of the hottest teams in the league over the last month. This began with that sweep of Anaheim in February, which was the start of a 12-2-1 run before the Wild’s most recent two-game series at Colorado, where they were outscored 11-1 over two losses. Despite the recent forgettable showings, Minnesota has still managed to climb into playoff position – sitting third in the West – as they look to secure an eighth playoff appearance in the last nine years.

Even with the back-to-back losses, Minnesota’s 12-4-1 record (25 points) since Feb. 18 is still tied for third-best in the league since that mark, behind only Washington. The Wild are also 10-3-0 at home this season, and have won eight straight home games (tied for longest in franchise history). Minnesota has not lost at home since January 30th – longest active home win streak in the league.

While this season seems to be lost for the Ducks, and never really was on track from the get-go, reason for optimism does exist in Anaheim in the form of 22-year-old Max Comtois, Trevor Zegras (turned 20 on Saturday) and Jamie Drysdale (turns 19 on April 8).
