New York Rangers vs Winnipeg Jets

Where: Bell MTS Place, Winnipeg, Manitoba

When: Tuesday, February 12, 2019 8:00pm Eastern

We have a National Hockey League contest to consider when the New York Rangers travel to Manitoba for a matchup with the Winnipeg Jets. The Rangers are currently seven points away from the eighth-place Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference standings and the Jets are only one point behind the Calgary Flames for the top spot in the Western Conference standings. This should be a highly entertaining contest on Tuesday night.

Rangers Need to Limit Goals

If the regular season were to end today, the New York Rangers would miss the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Their record of 24-23-8 just isn’t good enough to get them through the tough Eastern Conference. The minus 26 goal differential tells the who story behind the Rangers woes, but there is still time to catch the Penguins, but they must start winning games now.

The Rangers aren’t listing anyone on their injury report for this game.

The Rangers lost to the Jets in their previous meeting in a shootout, so the Rangers have the revenge factor working for them. New York has a road record of 9-14-2 this season and have a one-game winning streak.

Mika Zibanejad leads the Rangers with 54 points on 23 goals, 31 assists and a +/- minus six this season. Over the past five games, Zibanejad has three goals, three assists and a +/- of plus two this season.

Henrik Lundqvist is scheduled to protect the cage on Tuesday night. Lundqvist has a record of 16-14-8 this season with 2.99 goals against average and 90 percent save percentage. Lundqvist also boasts a 66 percent shootout save percentage this season.

Over the last five games, the Rangers have been outscored their opponents 16-14 and outshot 172-156. New York has scored two power play goals on 13 chances for a 15.4 percent success rate and allowed one shorthanded goal on 11 tries for a 90 percent success rate over their last five games.

Winnipeg Special Teams Getting it Done

The Jets have had a fantastic season, and their 35-18-3 record is good enough for second place in the Western Conference. Having a plus 34 goal differential and being only one point behind the Calgary Flames for the top spot in the Western Conference is also pretty good. The Jets have their competition, as the San Jose Sharks are also tied with Winnipeg and the Nashville Predators are a mere two points behind, so the Jets still have plenty of work to do and that begins on Tuesday night against the Rangers.

Winnipeg isn’t reporting any injuries for Tuesday night against the Rangers.

The Jets snuck past the Rangers in their last meeting, have a home record of 20-6-3 and have a one-game winning streak.

Blake Wheeler leads the Jets with 67 points on 12 goals and a team-leading 55 assists. Wheeler also has a +/- of plus eight and over his last five games has three goals, one assist and a +/- of minus two over his past five games.

Connor Hellebuyck is slated to crouch in the crease and has a record of 25-15-2 this season with 2.86 goals against average and 91 percent save percentage. Hellebuyck also has an 83 percent save rate on shootouts this season.

Over their last five games, the Jets have outscored their opponents 18-17 but have been outshot 188-167. Winnipeg has scored three power-play goals in 15 opportunities for a 20 percent success rate and allowed three shorthanded goals on 12 chances for a 75 percent success rate this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

There isn’t much value taking the Jets on the money line, but the Rangers aren’t going to beat the Jets. The Rangers are a terrible road team with a lousy goal differential playing against one of the best home sides in the NHL. I would play the Jets in this game.

Prediction: Winnipeg -216

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Lundqvist is still capable of brilliance and we always have to guard remember that when we look at his GAA. Hellebuyck is darn good also so I don’t see this game score being over five goals, let alone the 6.5 Vegas has opened with. Play the under and thank me on Wednesday.

Prediction: Under 6.5 Goals
