The Winnipeg Jets look to keep rolling by already picking up their fourth win of the year. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.8 goals per game and are scoring on 33.3 percent of their power plays. Mark Scheifele leads Winnipeg with three goals, Mathieu Perreault has four assists and Nikolaj Ehlers has 15 shots on goal.

The Flames are 2-5 in their last 7 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-5 in their last 6 road games. The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. Western Conference. The home team is 13-5-1 in the last 19 meetings.
The home team has owned this series, and the Jets are off to an impressive start right out of the gate. I like Winnipeg to stay hot and beat the Flames for the fourth time in six tries.
