Jets Look to Even Opening-Round Series with Blues at 2-2

The Winnipeg Jets got in the win column for the first time in this postseason in Game 3 and now look to knot their series vs the St. Louis Blues at 2-2 at the Enterprise Center. This opening-round series has seen the road team win each of the first three games. Despite that trend, the Blues are a -150 favorite with the Jets coming back at +130. The total opened at 5.5 goals.

Jets vs Blues Game Center

Standout Stats

  • St. Louis opened this series with a couple of tight one-goal wins at Bell MTS Place. However, Winnipeg earned revenge with a three-goal triumph at the Enterprise Center in Game 3. Through the series, the Jets have outscored the Blues 10-9.
  • The total has been set at 5.5 for each of the games in this opening-round series, including tonight’s game. The combined scores have gone OVER that total in two of the three games with an average combined score of 6.33 and only the first game going UNDER.
  • One of the biggest reasons that St. Louis made the playoffs this year was the play of goaltender Jordan Binnington. The 25-year-old sported a record of 24-5-1 with a 1.89 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage from mid-December onward. However, it appears that Winnipeg may have figured him out as he has a .880 save percentage and a 3.36 GAA in the postseason. Meanwhile, Jets netminder Connor Hellebuyck hasn’t been much better but that little edge could be the difference in this series as he has a .897 save percentage and a 3.06 GAA.
  • The Jets have done a fantastic job at maintaining puck possession, committing just 19 turnovers through the first three games, while the Blues have had 29 giveaways. Additionally, Winnipeg has had the edge in the special teams as it has gone 3-for-9 on the power play while limiting St. Louis to 1-for-12 with the man advantage.
  • St. Louis has to figure out a way to slow down Patrik Laine as the winger has three goals in the series and now has 16 in 15 games against the Blues all-time, which is his most against any team.

My Best Bet for Winnipeg vs St. Louis

Winnipeg Moneyline

I think the Jets might have found some weaknesses in Jordan Binnington’s armor and they are going to fill up the scoresheet once again. By limiting turnovers, Winnipeg isn’t allowing St. Louis many extra opportunities. Additionally, with both teams playing fairly chippy out there, the advantage, once again, swings in favor of the Jets as their PP unit is clicking at 33.3 percent while the Blues are just 1-for-12.
