Expect a playoff-like atmosphere from Bell MTS Place on Saturday night when two Western Conference titans go head-to-head. A mere 2 points separates the 1st place Jets from the visiting Predators in the Central division race so things could get wild.
The Jets have taken the last two in this head to head matchup including a 5-3 home win to kick off March. Both teams come in off of a loss but home ice has made Winnipeg a slight favorite.
Nashville continued their strong defensive showing even though it resulted in a 1-2 SO loss to Pittsburgh on Thursday. That defeat broke a three game winning streak the Predators had going but it still makes just 5 goals allowed over the last four games total.
Pekka Rinne has buckled down a bit in net, allowing just 2 goals total in his last 3 outings. The veteran had hit a bit of a rough patch prior to that with 10 goals given up in 3 games but he seems to have snapped out of it.
Do the Jets just match up well with the Predators? Aside from an 0-3 loss in Nashville back in the fourth game of the season, Winnipeg has won two straight over the Preds by a combined score of 10-4. Rinne has been in net for both defeats too.
Winnipeg was skunked in Las Vegas on Thursday to snap a four game win streak of their own. Much like Nashville, defense has been the name of the game for the Jets who allowed just 3 goals total in the three games prior to the Golden Knights loss.
One bright spot for Winnipeg is that Connor Hellebuyck only allowed 2 goals of the 5 that Vegas scored. He’ll look to get back on track Saturday, as he has allowed just 4 goals in three starts prior to Thursday’s relief appearance.
Saturday’s O/U is just 5.5 which is a testament to the solid goaltending from both squads. The Winnipeg offense also looked bad in their last outing but in their defense it was on part two of a B2B.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Predators are 4-1 their last 5 vs. Western Conference
- Predators are 1-6 their last 7 Saturday games
- Jets are 4-1 their last 5 overall
- Jets are 67-26 their last 93 home games
- Road team is 5-2 the last 7 H2H meetings
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Predators +100
Nashville wants this one as they’ve lost two in a row to Winnipeg and it’s starting to get personal. The Jets could be a bit fatigued playing their 3rd game in 4 nights which should be enough to give the Preds an edge.
