Coming off the team’s fifth straight win, the Winnipeg Jets will look to make it six in a row when it heads to Columbus to take on the tough Blue Jackets.
Columbus, with losses in four straight games, need to get back in the win column with just three games left until the playoffs begin.
Winnipeg has been officially eliminated from playoff contention, but the team has certainly looked like one that could be in the playoffs this year. The Jets have won five straight games, including a great 5-2 win over St. Louis.
Unfortunately, 83 points with three games to go won’t get it done in the Western Conference and the Jets will look to finish strong and get ready for next season.
The Jets have been great offensively, ranking 6th in the league in goals. Rookie Patrik Laine continues to be fantastic, tallying 36 goals and 28 assists. In his last five games, he has two goals and an assist.
Columbus Blue Jackets
The Columbus Blue Jackets are having its franchise-best season this year and the team is just one win shy of a 50-win season.
However, it’s been a tough stretch for Columbus recently, as the team has lost four straight and six of the last eight.
The Blue Jackets rank 8th in the NHL in goals, averaging about three goals per game. The team’s scoring is led by Cam Atkinson, who has 33 goals and 27 assists. He has just a single goal and no assists in his last five games.
Defensively, Columbus ranks 2nd in goals against, giving up just 2.3 goals per game. Starting goaltending Sergei Bobrovsky has been great, posting a record of 41-16-5 with a 2.02 GAA.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Winnipeg is 5-0 SU in the last five games
- The Total has gone UNDER in five of Columbus’ last six games
Free Winnipeg Jets vs. Columbus Blue Jackets NHL Hockey Prediction:
Winnipeg is on a five-game winning streak and Columbus has lost its last four games in pretty poor fashion. Both teams should play tough in this game but I like Winnipeg to get the W in this one.
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Winnipeg ML
Winnipeg has been much better over the past few games than Columbus has been. I like the Winnipeg money line in this one, considering the team is playing great and is the underdog.
