Winnipeg Jets at Vegas Golden Knights 2/22/19 NHL Pick

Vegas Golden KnightsThe Jets are facing a challenge from the Predators in the standings, but also the Golden Knights are not far back from the Sharks either. With the Golden Knights, they are attempting to run down the Sharks, but the Vegas squad is also looking to hold off the Coyotes in the standings and since the Golden Knights have put 10 points between them and that could help the Golden Knights lock in the third place in the Pacific.

Winnipeg Jets Preview

The Jets are coming into this game after dropping the last 3 games in a row. However,  the Jets are really trying to figure out what happened in the last game when they lost the game to the Avalanche team that has looked lost quite a bit this year by a score of 7-1. Kyle Conner would score the lone goal for the Jets, but it would come in the 3rd period and actually ended up being a power play goal. Hellebuyck in the game was off of his game as he faced 46 shots, but only saved 84.8% of the shots.

On the year the Jets have been able to rely on Blake Wheeler for the scoring with 69 points total and 57 assist. Mark Scheifele has been able to get a total of 30 goals on the year. When he is playing good Connor Hellebuyck is the goalie who plays best with the Jets with 26 wins, 2.98 goals allowed and 90.9% saved. As a team the Jets have been able to get 3.35 goals a game. The defense for the Jets have allowed 2.95 goals a game. The Jets have converted on the power play at 24.7%, but have managed to kill off 79.4% of the opponents power plays.

The Golden Knights are playing decent on the year at home, but the Jets are just over the five hundred mark on the year when playing on the road. The Golden Knights have even been able to beat quite a few teams lately that have been ahead of them at home. Not to mention the Golden Knights did not lose to the Avalanche by giving up 7 goals in the last game and that luck will continue in all likelihood for the Jets. I personally look for this game to be a battle, but I look for the Golden Knights to pull off a home battle here 3-2.
