Jets vs. Canucks Prediction

I’m on the Canucks here. Vancouver hasn’t had a ton of luck against the Jets in the past, but Vancouver has had a lot easier of a time finding the back of the net in recent games. Winnipeg’s scored 2 goals or less in 8 straight and 9 of 10 and at a certain point, the defense can only do so much before the offense has to hold up its end. Vancouver’s been one of the most consistent teams in the NHL this season, especially at home, and I think they snag the win at home here.
