NHL: Ottawa Senators - Winnipeg Jets
- Title : NHL: Ottawa Senators - Winnipeg Jets
Jets hope to return to their winning ways as they travel to Ottawa to face the Senators. The Senators have surprised many by splitting their first two games against Toronto to start the season with a 1-1 record. This game is the start of a mini-series that will give us back-to-back games in Ottawa and if either team can sweep this series, it will put them in a great position for sure.
Winnipeg is a talented team but they are playing the second game of a back-to-back situation here. The Jets are going to have to battle fatigue and likely playing their #2 goaltender in this situation.
This game is going to be a closer game than many would anticipate but we can still expect the Jets to handle the Senators easily. We can expect Hellebuyck to have his best game of the season and constantly eliminate the Senators' attack. The Jets will also find scoring in this game aside from just Patrick Laine and Kyle Connor and will find the back of the net multiple times in this game.
UNDER 6,5 GOALS
But still,this game gives us two great goaltenders and will be a low-scoring game because of it. While Ottawa is displaying great depth in their offense, we can expect Hellebuyck to be able to constantly eliminate the offense. The Jets will also find a tough time scoring in this game against a defense that is blocking 20 shots per game. The Under is the best bet with the anticipation that both defenses and goaltenders will play well in this game.
