The Winnipeg Jets are coming off a 6-4 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. There’s good news, this club finds itself four points back of the Vegas Golden Knights and has two games in hand over them.
Forward @Jansen Harkins enjoyed the first multi-point game of his NHL career in that game, and @Kyle Connor also registered new career-highs in goals (39) and points (77) thanks to his four-point performance in Chicago.
On the betting front, I had another average night, going 3-for-6 on my bets. Let the good times roll for both me and the Jets.
What You Need to Know About the Jets
This season has been a rollercoaster, to say the least, for the Jets as they own 68 points and a 29-23-10 record. They only need 13 more wins to reach that magical number of 94 points.
Hellebuyck is making his fifth straight start in this contest. His below-average performance continues with a 22-22-9 record, a 3.01 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage.
Connor is not only having his best NHL season, but he also leads the Jets in goals (39) and points(77). Teammate @Mark Scheifele ranks second on the team in scoring with 55 points.
Winnipeg will be without @Cole Perfetti (upper body) and @Adam Lowry (COVID-19).
The Jets and the Golden Knights last met seven days ago, where a crowd-induced surge sparked Winnipeg’s 7-4 victory.

The Golden Knights have fallen off the wagon since Jan. 1, as they own a 12-18-0 record since then. Overall, their club features a 34-27-4 record, 72 points, and has 17 games remaining in the regular season.
Former Jet @Laurent Brossoit is likely to play against his former team for a third time this season. In two previous matchups, he’s allowed nine goals on 50 shots against. Overall, Brossoit possesses a 1-9-3 record, a 2.90 goals-against average and a .895 save percentage this season.
