The Jets would probably need Thursday’s game more as they hold just a 3 point lead over Nashville for 1st place in the Central division. That being said, Vegas has gone on a nice little run lately and is always tough to beat at T-Mobile Arena.
Make no mistake, the Jets have been no slouch as they’ve rattled off wins in 7 of 10 including victories in four straight. Winnipeg did play last night however, a 3-0 win over Anaheim. Thursday is the Jets’ 3rd game in four nights – all on the road.
Winnipeg attacked the very winnable game vs. Anaheim last night and used their #1 goaltender Connor Hellebuyck. He guided the shut out and has now allowed just 1 goal in his last two starts.
Using Hellebuyck in Anaheim leaves Laurent Brossoit to man the pipes in Vegas. He started the first game on this road trip and engineered a 3-2 win over the Kings as the Jets defense allowed LA just 17 shots.
Winnipeg has ramped up their defense overall, allowing just 3 total goals during their three game win streak. The stakes get a little higher with a red hot Vegas offense on the ice Thursday however.
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights have tallied wins in 9 of 10 games and have now won five straight on their own ice. The last team to beat Vegas at T-Mobile Arena was Winnipeg, who scored a 6-3 victory back on February 22nd.
The Vegas offense is definitely going to give the Jets backup G fits in this one. The Golden Knights have scored 24 goals in their last five games having scored 6+ in 3 of 5.
Winnipeg is not the only team fighting goaltending issues Thursday as Vegas netminder Marc-Andre Fleury is doubtful with a lower body injury. Malcolm Subban will likely get the nod aiming for his third straight win, allowing 3 goals each to Calgary and San Jose in back-to-back outings.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Jets are 16-7 their last 23 vs. a team with a winning record
- Golden Knights are 9-1 their last 10 overall
- Golden Knights are 57-28 their last 85 home games
- Under is 5-2-1 the last 8 meetings
4* Free NHL Betting Pick: Over 6
There’s issues in net for both teams and two top 11 scoring offenses squaring off. Winnipeg is a bit fatigued and will have to hold up their end of the bargain if the ‘over’ wants to hit. With Subban in net, they should be able to squeeze out three scores.
NHL Free Score Prediction: Vegas 4 – Jets 3
Vegas could even open it up more with 5-6 goals on their own.
