The Canadiens are a really tough team to pinpoint in terms of just how good they are, or how good they could become during the year with the bookies still thinking this is a pretty solid club, as they have the Canadiens listed as -130 favorites for this contest.
The Jets really like to score this year putting up 3.23 goals per game and although a lot of those offensive breakouts have come against lesser competition like the Seantors or Canucks, they have shown the ability to go toe to toe with the best teams in the North Division as well.
Mark Scheifele has been an outstanding play-maker as well as goal-scorer here in 2021, as he has tallied 15 goals and 31 assists during the first 40 games of the season. The center from Kitchener, Ontario has often times been overlook because of where he plays, but now at 27 years old and in his prime he is making people pay attention with his fantastic performances.
Connor Hellebuyck has been possibly the biggest reason why the Winnipeg Jets are flying so high this year, as he has stolen plenty of games for this team including the last one against this Canadiens side, as he made 36 stops in that 4-2 Jets win.
The Canadiens are a bit up and down lately and although they could make the playoffs, I do not really see them being good enough to make a run at the Stanley Cup unless something drastic happens between now and the playoffs.
Tyler Toffoli has been awesome this year scoring 19 goals and adding 11 assists and it is not surprising he has been able to thrive in an offense which puts up an average of 3.08 goals per game.
The Winnipeg Jets can be a team that takes plenty of penalties and that could be the Canadiens key to victory here, as they have been converting on the power play at a rate of 20.6% which is quite decent.

Free Winnipeg Jets vs. Montreal Canadiens NHL Prediction:
The Winnipeg Jets are the better team here and I think they can repeat their last win over the Canadiens here on Saturday night. The Jets have the edge in terms of the goal-keeping, especially based on what we saw in the last game and I tend to favor the Winnipeg offense as well, as they just have so many ways to hit you.
The early money is all on the Jets as well at a nice +110 price with around 80% of the money going on the Jets, so we could very well see some line movement between now and puck drop.
