Vancouver Canucks vs Winnipeg Jets 05/11/2021 Betting Odds:
There were a handful of scenarios entering the NHL’s schedule on Monday. For the Canucks, they knew that it would take the stars to align for them in their bid to extend their season lives. But, to no avail. They did their part with success as they took down the Jets at home in convincing fashion. Unfortunately, though, the fourth and final playoff seat in the North was eventually clinched by the Montreal Canadiens. The cast is now complete for the postseason joust, as teams like the Canucks are left to put up the finishing touches to their year.
Players to watch: B. Boeser RW (G 20 A 21 PTS 41), J.T. Miller C (G 13 A 25 PTS 38), Q. Hughes D (G 3 A 33 PTS 36).
The struggles continue for the Jets as they approach the last two games of their regular season schedule. Falling to their ninth loss in the last 10 games, there really is no reason for Winnipeg to be pleased. Home fans are running out of negative superlatives to describe their team’s recent play, let alone its performance inside the Bell MTS Place. It is far from their ideal way of punctuating a season, which started with a series of stellar showing on ice. Despite an assured spot in the playoffs, it’s clear that Winnipeg has already pressed the panic button – a signal that they must figure things out immediately before it is too late.
Players to watch: M. Scheifele C (G 20 A 38 PTS 58), N. Ehlers LW (G 21 A 25 PTS 46), K. Connor LW (G 22 A 22 PTS 44).

The Canucks got the win on Monday, but just like the Jets, they too are entering Tuesday’s rematch as a dispirited group. It should be an apparent opportunity for Winnipeg to break out of its slump.
