Connor Hellebuyck has given up five goals on 63 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up three goals on 41 shots.

The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 Thursday games and 6-2 in their last 8 games as a road favorite. The Senators are 6-13 in their last 19 Thursday games and 35-75 in their last 110 games as an underdog. The under is 3-1-1 in Jets last 5 Thursday games. The over is 7-3 in Senators last 10 overall. The Jets are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Ottawa and 7-2 in the last 9 meetings. The favorite is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings.
The Ottawa Senators have more to prove if they want to become a team worthy of backing this season, as they've been on the struggle bus these last couple of years. The Winnipeg Jets are off to a decent start through three games, and they've had the upper hand over the Senators in past meetings, which includes a rally a couple days ago where they won in overtime. The Jets have also won six straight games in the favorite role. Hard not to like the Winnipeg Jets to get another one over the Senators.
