The Jets fly into this evening’s contest sporting a 36-20-4 record that nets them 76 points on the season. That 76 point tally currently ranks Winnipeg 2nd overall in the Central Division. Right now the division is led by the Nashville Preds and their 77 point tally on the season. With that in mind, it’s clear that Winnipeg could make a push for the lead in the division. Nevertheless, it’s looking like tonight’s NHL hockey betting odds are predicting a loss for Winnipeg this evening. This isn’t shocking however, since Winnipeg is 3-5-1 straight up in their last 10 versus Winnipeg. If that trends continues this Friday night, Winnipeg will be in store for yet another loss. This is terrible for the team since they’re in a rut and the St. Louis Blues aren’t too far behind them with 69 on the year.
Players to Watch: Blake Wheeler (12 G, 57 A, 69 PTS.), Mark Scheifele (30 G, 38 A, 68 PTS.), and Kyle Connor (23 G, 22 A, 45 PS).
Vegas Golden Knights
The Golden Knights march into this evening’s contest sporting a 32-25-5 record that ranks them 3rd overall in the Pacific Division. Right now the Pacific is led by the Calgary Flames and their 80 point tally on the year. Behind them is none other than the San Jose Sharks and their 80 point on the season. With that in mind, it’s clear that Vegas needs to turn things around soon if they are to make this year’s playoffs. So will tonight’s matchup be the catalyst to that turnaround? The odds seem to think so. Notwithstanding that favoritism, it’ll be up to Vegas to overcome Winnipeg’s superior offense at home tonight.
Players to Watch: Alex Tuch (16 G, 26 A, 42 PTS.), Jonathan Marchessault (19 G, 22 A, 41 PTS.), and William Karlsson (18 G, 20 A, 38 PTS.).
