The Winnipeg Jets are coming off a massive 4-3 overtime victory over the St.Louis Blues. Thanks to a massive 3-on-0 save in the extra frame from goaltender @Connor Hellebuyck, this team earned its third overtime victory of the season.

Since Winnipeg currently sits four points back of the Vegas Golden Knights for the final playoff spot, there’s no question Tuesday’s contest is one of the most meaningful of 2021-22. With a regulation win and a Dallas Stars loss, this franchise would move just two points back of that second wild-card seed.

I feel dirty saying this but, let’s go Toronto Maple Leafs.

On the betting side, I enjoyed a pretty successful night, hopefully you did too, as I went 4-for-6 on the night. Let’s hope for continued success during this highly-anticipated bout at Canada Life Centre.
