Knights at Jets OddsShark Matchup Report
The biggest question mark for the jets in this postseason was how Connor Hellebuyck would react to the pressure of the limelight in the playoffs. Hellebuyck has passed the test so far and stopped 36 of the 37 shots in Game 7 against the Nashville Predators to lead Winnipeg to a 5-1 victory and improve to 8-4 in this postseason with a 2.25 goal counter (19659011 ) As Hellebuyck plays at a high level and the jets are locked in the postseason with 3.58 goals per game for the highest score, Winnipeg looks like a tough team.
Since March 15, the jets are 19-5 in their last 24 games per oddsshark NHL database.
Vegas Golden Knights
For the second straight series, the Golden Knights punched their ticket in the next round with an exclusion victory on the road, this time in a 3-0 win over San Jose in Game Sixth Vegas much more like a well-oiled engine than does a Cinderella story, mowing the first two laps with an 8-2 record, which includes a 4-1 record on the road.
Marc-Andre Fleury was the best goalkeeper In the playoffs this season, he was top scorer with an average goal score of 1.53 and a safe percentage of 0.951.
There are 5.5 goals on Saturday. The UNDER is 9-5 in Winnipeg's last 14 games.
If the top offensive in the postseason collides with the top goalkeeper in the postseason, something has to be done. These two teams have achieved this point because of their excellent depth and ability to roll four effective lines. This type of game should pave the way for a very entertaining series.
