Tuesday NHL action brings a matchup between the Winnipeg Jets and Vegas Golden Knights.

The Vegas Golden Knights have been at the top of their game with wins in eight of nine after a 4-3 OT victory at Chicago on Saturday. Alex Debrincat scored twice and Patrick Kane also tallied for the Blackhawks. Erik Gustafsson gave Chicago two assists and Collin Delia gave up four goals on 23 shots.

The Golden Knights received regulation goals from Alex Tuch, Ryan Carpenter and Paul Stastny. Shea Theodore scored the overtime winner with Max Pacioretty posting a pair of helpers for Vegas and Marc-Andre Fleury recorded 29 saves to get the win.

The Winnipeg Jets sit atop the Central with wins in four of five after defeating visiting Anaheim 4-2 in OT on Sunday. The Ducks received scoring from Brian Gibbons, Rickard Rakell and Andrew Cogliano. Carter Rowney recorded three helpers and Daniel Sprong assisted twice while John Gibson gave up four goals on 34 shots to get the loss Anaheim. 

Blake Wheeler, Patrik Laine and Ben Chairot scored in regulation for Winnipeg with Bryan Little netting the OT winner. Little also posted an assist and Connor Hellebuyck made 28 stops to get the win for the Jets.

Golden Knights are 4-0 in their last 4 Tuesday games and Golden Knights are 6-0 in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and Golden Knights are 5-0 in their last 5 vs. Central. Jets are 7-1 in their last 8 in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation and Jets are 13-3 in their last 16 games playing on 1 days rest and Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. Pacific. Under is 3-0-1 in the last 4 meetings in Winnipeg and Golden Knights are 4-0 in the last 4 meetings and under is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings. 

Both teams are playing well so I’d avoid the juice in this matchup and do something on Vegas…

I have been a sports fan since I was old enough to pick up a ball and have always been drawn to competition. I don't participate in sporting events any longer but I do like to provide my opinion on games and writing gives me that outlet. I won't always be right but I always put 100% in to every article I do whether it's the World Series or an 0-10 college football team. Mitch shares that same passion and allows me to express myself in my own way.
