On the second night of a back-to-back after a tilt with the Los Angeles Kings, the Minnesota Wild head to Canada to take on the Winnipeg Jets.
Winnipeg, with points in each of the last five games, still have a shot at the playoffs and need to continue winning, especially against a fellow Central Division team in Minnesota.
The Minnesota Wild have been a fantastic team this season on both ends of the ice. With Sunday’s acquisition of Martin Hanzal from Arizona, the Wild have solid, goal-scoring centers on all four lines.
Hanzal should contribute for this team, after scoring 16 goals and 10 assists for the Coyotes.
Right wing Nino Niederreiter has been an important skater for this team as well. He has 19 goals and 26 assists this year, including a goal and three assists in the last five games.
Center Eric Staal is playing great hockey for the Wild. He has 17 goals and 28 assists this season, including a goal and an assist in his last five games.
Just as important as the offense has been the goaltending. Starting netminder Devan Dubnyk is having an All-Star season, with a record of 32-11-3 and a .933 save percentage. He also has a 2.01 goals against average.
After a two-game suspension, Jacob Trouba should be back for the game against Minnesota. Trouba has been missed and it will be good for the Jets to have him back in the lineup.
Trouba is an important defenseman for the team and contributes on the offensive end as well. Trouba has five goals and 19 assists on the year, including a goal over his last five games.
Offensively, the Jets have been a great hockey team. Right wing Patrik Laine, the rookie, is having a tremendous year. He has 30 goals and 24 assists this season, including seven goals and three assists in his last five games.
Center Mark Scheifele has been Winnipeg’s other top offensive skater. He has 25 goals and 37 assists, including nine assists over his last five games. He has four multi-point games in those last five.
Unfortunately, the team isn’t even close to as good on the defensive end. The Jets give up the 2nd most goals in the NHL and give up 3.16 per game.
NHL Betting Trends:
- The OVER is 6-3 in Minnesota’s last nine games
- Winnipeg is 3-6 SU in the last nine games
