On January 27, the Winnipeg Jets suffered their sixth consecutive defeat against the Vancouver Canucks, which fell 5-1. If there was one positive thing about getting out of that last outing, it was Andrew Copp score a beautiful baseball style goal on the side of the net.
Other than that, it was a very disappointing night for Winnipeg and its fans.
On the betting front, I went 2-for-6 that night. I will take a moment to relax and try to get back to winning bets. During this afternoon’s competition we should discover the answer to our question, can the Jets break their longest slide of the year? Let’s hope so.
What you need to know about the jets
The Jets are not enjoying a good time right now. Due to injuries to key players, it feels like half of the team is being filled by AHLers. This club currently ranks sixth in the Central Division with a 17-16-7 record and 41 points.
For the 14th consecutive game, interim coach Dave Lowry will start Connor Hellebuyck. In his last 10 starts, he has a 3-5-2 record. Overall, Hellebuyck recorded a record of 14-14-6, a 0.909 saving percentage and a 2.93 goals-against-average.
The Jets will be without it Nikolaj Ehlers (lower body), Dominic Toninato (COVID-19), Josh Morrissey (COVID-19), Dylan DeMelo (lower body), Logan Stanley (lower body) and Dylan Samberg (bolyf).
Forward @Kyle Connor leads Winnipeg in goals (23), assists (19) and points (42).
What you need to know about the Blues
The Blues are having a great time at the moment as they are 7-3-0 over their last 10 games. At that time, they were either blown away or their opponent ran out of town themselves. On top of that, only two of those matches were decided with one goal.
On the season, the Blues shake with a 26-12-5 record and are third in the Central Division. A win or an overtime loss against the Jets will enable them to jump to second place.
Ville Husso will man the fold in this afternoon matter. Despite being his second NHL season, Husso is enjoying a solid performance so far, with a 9-2-1 record, a 0.945 save percentage and a 1.81 goals at average.
@Jordan Kyrou leads St Louis in goals (17) and points (42) while Robert Thomas leads the team in assists (27).
