The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 16.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Nikolaj Ehlers leads Winnipeg with seven goals, Patrik Laine has 11 assists and Blake Wheeler has 53 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing three goals per game and are killing 72.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 35 goals on 487 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has allowed 19 goals on 134 shots. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed three or less goals in eight of their last 10 games.
The Florida Panthers look to stay hot after winning seven of their last 11 games. The Florida Panthers are averaging 3.5 goals per game and are scoring on 22.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Jonathan Huberdeau leads Florida with nine goals, Aleksander Barkov has 19 assists and Mike Hoffman has 53 shots on goal. Defensively, the Florida Panthers are allowing 3.5 goals per game and are killing 83 percent of their opponents power plays. Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 47 goals on 395 shots faced and Sam Montembeault has allowed 15 goals on 154 shots. The Florida Panthers have allowed three or more goals in five of their last seven games.
The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 road games, 8-20 in their last 28 Thursday games and 2-8 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest. The Panthers are 7-3 in their last 10 games playing on 1 days rest, 3-7 in their last 10 games following a win and 2-5 in their last 7 games as a favorite. The under is 4-1-1 in Jets last 6 road games. The over is 14-4-1 in Panthers last 19 home games. The favorite is 43-21 in the last 64 meetings. The home team is 12-5 in the last 17 meetings. The over is 2-0-2 in the last 4 meetings.
The Winnipeg Jets have had a lot of recent success on the road and have thrived in the underdog role. However, it's the Florida Panthers who I am watching very closely, as they're starting to come together as a team and make serious progress with wins in seven of their last 11 tries. The Florida Panthers are also fresh off a win over the Boston Bruins where they entered the third period down 0-4, completing the biggest comeback in franchise history. It's those types of wins that can do wonders for a teams momentum. I'll side with the Florida Panthers at home and the reasonable price.
