Home Ice Vital When Jets, Flames Face Off

If the NHL playoffs were to start today, then the Winnipeg Jets would find themselves on the outside looking in. The Jets, who need to start winning more consistently, will have history on their side when they host the Calgary Flames Saturday night. The all-Canadian matchup has hinged on home ice with the road team dropping the past seven meetings between the two franchises.

SHARK BITES
  • The Jets are 0-8 SU in their last 8 games at home against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in 16 of the Jets' last 22 games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the past 5 games between the Flames and Jets.

If any Flames team is to go into Winnipeg and end the streak it is this one. Calgary enters this game riding an eight-game winning streak that has seen them score 3.8 goals per game. Johnny Gaudreau has been on fire during the winning streak with the diminutive winger tallying three goals and 10 assists in the past eight outings.

The Jets inconsistency has been surprisingly consistent lately, as Winnipeg has alternated two wins and then two losses across their past eight games. No matter the ups and downs, Mark Scheifele is one of the hottest players in the NHL. Scheifele has tallied three goals and 12 assists in the past 10 games.
