After collecting 15 defeats in their past 17 outings, the Los Angeles Kings (8th in Pacific Division) are about to play host to the Winnipeg Jets (1st in Central), who have won two games in a row…

Jets Beat Calgary

A three-game homestand finished with a 2-1-0 record for the Winnipeg Jets (42-25-4), who edged out the Calgary Flames with a score of 2-1 at Bell MTS Place on Saturday. Mark Scheifele (34 goals, 79 points this year) and Mathieu Perreault (14 goals, 27 points) both found the back of the net, as the Jets went 5-3-0 in their last eight contests after winning just one of their previous six (1-4-1). The team sits at the top of the Central Division with 88 points from 71 matchups, one point ahead of the 2nd-placed Nashville Predators and with two games in hand.

Goalie Connor Hellebuyck turned away 27 shots to take his current performance total to 30-20-2 for the year with a 2.97 GAA and a .910 save percentage. He has posted a 2-3-0 past tally against the Los Angeles Kings with a 2.99 GAA and a .896 save percentage. The Jets, meanwhile, are scoring the 6th highest amount of goals per game (3.39), while allowing the 14th lowest quantity in their defensive zone (2.96). They are 4th in power play with a 25.6% success rate and 23rd in penalty kill with 79.3% proficiency.

Kings Lose To Cats

The Los Angeles Kings (25-38-8) lost for the second consecutive time (0-2-0) following a 4-3 defeat to the Florida Panthers at Staples Center on Saturday. Dustin Brown (18 goals, 41 points this year), Brendan Leipsic (7 goals, 22 points) and Anze Kopitar (20 goals, 50 points) all lit the lamp for the Kings, who have managed to triumph on just two of their last 17 occasions (2-11-4). They are 8th in the Pacific Division with 58 points from 71 outings, 20 points outside the playoff contention of the Western Conference.

Goalie Jonathan Quick made 31 saves versus Florida and has now gone 13-21-6 for the year with a 3.30 GAA and a .891 save percentage. He is 5-5-2 against the Winnipeg Jets historically with a 2.84 GAA and a .895 save percentage. The Kings, meanwhile, are netting the 2nd lowest number of goals per game (2.34), while giving up the 10th highest amount on the defensive end (3.15). They are 26th in power play with a 15.3% conversion rate and 3rd from the bottom in penalty kill with 75.7% effectiveness.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Jets have not been too lucky when visiting poor home teams, winning just four of the last 15 such contests. Still, Los Angeles has already dropped four straight domestic fixtures and is 2-5 versus sides with a winning road record. So, do back Winnipeg to triumph in this one with confidence. The Kings have nothing to play for, while the Jets are still battling to remain at the top of the Central Division.

Prediction: Winnipeg Jets

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Not a lot of goals have been scored in this series lately, with four of the past five meetings between the two sides going under the total, averaging just 3.5 snipes per contest. Besides, four of the last six outings of the Jets, following a win, have already gone below the set goal-mark, with five of the previous seven games of the Kings versus teams with a winning record doing exactly the same.

Prediction: Under 6
