The Winnipeg Jets are coming off another big win! This time over the Vegas Golden Knights, by a score of 7-3 on Mar.15. Unfortunately, a Golden Knights win over the Florida Panthers one night ago means they’re still four points ahead of the Jets for the second wild-card seed.
Defenceman @Logan Stanley stood out massively, picking up his first career Gordie Howe hat-trick. Forward @Kyle Connor also cracked the score sheet, extending his goal streak to five games – perhaps he can stay red-hot Friday night.
Personally, I enjoyed a successful night of betting, going 4-for-6 on the evening. Hopefully, myself and the Jets can continue this recent success.

The Jets are 6-3-1 in their last 10 games, putting them right back into the hunt for a playoff spot. This season, they own a 28-23-10 record and 66 points.
