The Winnipeg Jets and Vancouver Canucks meet Monday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.
The Winnipeg Jets need a win here after losing five of their last eight games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 25.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg with 16 goals, Mark Scheifele has 25 assists and Nikolaj Ehlers has 98 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 77.8 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 67 goals on 752 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up 18 goals on 224 shots.
The Vancouver Canucks look to stay hot after winning seven of their last nine games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 20.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 16 goals, Quinn Hughes has 26 assists and Bo Horvat has 80 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 79.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Braden Holtby has given up 39 goals on 406 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 61 goals on 772 shots.
The Jets are 7-2 in their last 9 games as a road favorite and 10-3 in their last 13 games as a favorite. The Canucks are 4-1 in their last 5 home games and 4-1 in their last 5 overall. The over is 8-1-1 in Jets last 10 overall. The under is 7-1-1 in Canucks last 9 overall. The Jets are 6-0 in the last 6 meetings in Vancouver and 17-4 in the last 21 meetings. The favorite is 20-7 in the last 27 meetings. The road team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Winnipeg Jets are probably the better team overall and they've absolutely owned the Canucks over the years, wining 17 of the last 21 meetings. However, it's the Canucks who are playing the better hockey right now with wins in seven of their last nine games and a defense that seems to be getting better and better. At home, I'm not sure how I can pass up the cheaper price with the red hot Canucks.
