The Winnipeg Jets and Ottawa Senators meet Thursday in NHL action at the Canadian Tire Centre.

The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after winning six of their last nine games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 19.4 percent of their power play opportunities. Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg with 29 goals, Mark Scheifele has 36 assists and Blake Wheeler has 156 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing three goals per game and are killing 75.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 123 goals on 1,520 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has allowed 50 goals on 445 shots. The Winnipeg Jets have allowed two goals in seven of their last 10 games.

The Ottawa Senators look for a win after winning three of their last four games. The Ottawa Senators are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 14.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Jean-Gabriel Pageau leads Ottawa with 22 goals, Thomas Chabot has 28 assists and Anthony Duclair has 164 shots on goal. Defensively, the Ottawa Senators are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 78.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Craig Anderson has given up 73 goals on 736 shots faced and Anders Nilsson has allowed 58 goals on 628 shots. The Ottawa Senators have allowed three or more goals in 10 of their last 14 games.

The Jets are 23-11 in their last 34 games as a road favorite, 1-4 in their last 5 road games and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Senators are 4-11 in their last 15 home games, 4-12 in their last 16 Thursday games and 35-72 in their last 107 overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Jets last 6 road games. The under is 5-2 in Senators last 7 Thursday games. The Jets are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

The Winnipeg Jets will eventually have to take their winning act on the road, but right now they're playing much better hockey than the Senators, a team that can't win much no matter where the game is played. Yes, the Senators have strung a few surprising wins together this week, but they're still the third least profitable team in the sport. The Winnipeg Jets also beat the Senators 5-2 earlier this month. I'll take the reasonable price with the Jets to continue fading the Senators.
