The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 27.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg with 17 goals, Mark Scheifele has 27 assists and Nikolaj Ehlers has 113 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 79.3 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 70 goals on 840 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up 22 goals on 257 shots.
The Calgary Flames need a win after losing five of their last seven games. The Calgary Flames are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 19.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Johnny Gaudreau leads Calgary with 13 goals, Elias Lindholm has 22 assists and Matthew Tkachuk has 104 shots on goal. Defensively, the Calgary Flames are allowing three goals per game and are killing 80.2 percent of their opponents power plays. Jacob Markstrom has allowed 69 goals on 720 shots faced and David Rittich has allowed 31 goals on 338 shots.
The Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 games playing on 1 days rest and 4-1 in their last 5 vs. a team with a losing record. The Flames are 5-2 in their last 7 Monday games and 1-4 in their last 5 overall. The over is 9-3-2 in Jets last 14 overall. The under is 4-0-1 in Flames last 5 overall. The Jets are 5-15 in the last 20 meetings in Calgary. The home team is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
The Winnipeg Jets haven't had a ton of success in Calgary and it's the home team that's won most of the meetings this season. This will be the third time these clubs have met over the last week. The Calgary Flames probably should be the favorites based on the home ice and how past meetings have gone, but it's the Jets who are playing the better hockey. The Flames have not been able to string wins together this season and they have lost four of the seven games against the Jets. I'll take the road team and the plus money.
