It’s a Western Conference showdown to start the conference playoffs on Wednesday night, as the Minnesota Wild and Winnipeg Jets will go toe-toe to kick off the start of the NHL playoffs.
The teams matched up four times in the regular season. Each team won two of the previous match ups with the home team winning each match up. Two of the four match ups were also decided by one goal.
The Minnesota Wild enter the playoffs with finishing 3rd in the Central Division as they finished the season on a strong note. The Wild would finish the season with a huge win against the San Jose Sharks as they proved they can win some important games.
Minnesota most continue their strong defensive line especially to start the series as the Wild have been lacking a strong line in the past couple of weeks.
They are averaging three goals per game with allowing almost 2.8 goals to their name. That is one of the smallest differences to enter the playoffs, however, clean up their defensive back line and they have some fire power to win this series.
One of the strongest teams to enter the playoffs, the Winnipeg Jets enter to win the Stanley Cup as the fifth favorite team to hopefully secure it all. However the Jets must continue their offensive attack.
Winnipeg had the second highest goals per game scored in the NHL with averaging 3.3 goals per game and only allowing 2.3 goals per game. Now that is a huge difference that can win them some games down the road.
Free Minnesota Wild vs. Winnipeg Jets Series Prediction:
This game is going to come down to how well the Wild can play defense, and with the Winnipeg Jets fast scoring offense, I don’t see them holding down the Jets all throughout the series.
