These two teams will meet for the second straight game after Toronto defeated Winnipeg in overtime by a score of 1-0 on Wednesday night. Toronto has won three of their last four games and they are 13-5-6 on the road. The Jets have been one of the best teams in the NHL this season, but they have lost two straight games. Winnipeg is only allowing 2.26 goals against per game this season and they have allowed two goals or fewer in 15 of their last 16 games. The Jets have been elite on defense and I like them to pick up the win at home.
