Vegas Golden Knights vs Winnipeg Jets 4/22/2023 Picks, Odds and Predictions

West 1st Round – Game 3, Series tied 1-1

On Saturday night, the Vegas Golden Knights (51-22-5-4, 43-39 PL, 35-41 O/U) will clash with the Winnipeg Jets (46-33-2-1, 42-40 PL, 23-53 O/U) in a pivotal game three of the Western Conference Quarterfinals at the Canada Life Centre. The Golden Knights had a commanding regular season record against the Jets, winning all three matchups. However, the Jets surprised the Golden Knights with a convincing 5-1 victory in game one, only to see the Golden Knights bounce back with a decisive 5-2 win in game two.

Despite the setback in game one, the Vegas Golden Knights head into game three with unwavering confidence. With a history of playoff success in their six seasons in the NHL, including winning the Pacific division this season ahead of the Oilers, the Golden Knights possess the potential and experience to make a deep playoff run.

When it comes to players to watch, Jack Eichel, who had a productive regular season against the Jets with four points in two meetings, was held scoreless in game one but rebounded with his first career playoff goal in game two. Chandler Stephenson, who had a breakout season with 65 points, including a four-point performance against the Jets in December, has also made an impact in this series with two points. Alex Pietrangelo, the star defenseman who logs significant minutes, contributed with two assists in game two after a minus-two performance in game one. Additionally, William Karlsson has been a key contributor with three points in the series, showcasing his valuable presence on the ice.

  • The Vegas Golden Knights are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road against the Jets.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 4 of Vegas’ last 5 games played on a Saturday.
  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of Vegas’ last 5 road games played on a Saturday.

Vegas Golden Knights vs Winnipeg Jets 4/22/2023 Picks, Odds and Predictions

The Winnipeg Jets are determined to regroup and rebound as they head back to their home ice after splitting the first two games on the road against the Vegas Golden Knights. Despite a challenging third period in game two, which resulted in a 5-2 defeat, the Jets remain optimistic as they return to their home arena where they have found success throughout the season. In fact, their only home game against Vegas this season was a closely contested 6-5 loss back in December.

The performance of key players will be crucial to the Jets’ success in the series. Players like Kyle Connor, Blake Wheeler, and Mark Scheifele will need to step up. Connor, who had only one point in three regular-season matchups against the Golden Knights, has already made an impact in this series with a crucial goal in game one. Wheeler, a veteran right-winger with extensive playoff experience, had an impressive three-point performance in game one, showcasing his leadership and skill. Scheifele, a 30-year-old center who recorded 68 points in the regular season, is still looking to find the scoresheet in this series after being minus-three in game two.

  • Winnipeg is 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home against Vegas.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 9 of Winnipeg’s last 13 games against an opponent in the Western Conference.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 11 of Winnipeg’s last 14 games played on a Saturday. 

Vegas Golden Knights vs Winnipeg Jets. The NHL pick for this game is the Winnipeg Jets. Although the final score of Game 2 may not fully reflect it, the matchup between the Vegas Golden Knights and the Winnipeg Jets was much closer than anticipated. With the game tied 2-2 heading into the third period, the Golden Knights managed to pull ahead with three unanswered goals. However, Jets’ goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, known for his exceptional skills, is expected to bounce back and showcase a sharper performance in Game 3. Game 2 was an anomaly in terms of his usual performance level.

Notably, the Golden Knights have struggled when playing in Winnipeg in recent history, and the home crowd advantage is expected to play a significant role in Game 3. The Jets will likely capitalize on the support of their enthusiastic fans to elevate their performance on the ice. As a result, many experts predict that the Jets will prevail over the Golden Knights in Game 3, potentially securing a 4-2 victory.
