Winnipeg Jets vs Vegas Golden Knights Predictions 4/18/2023


With a 5-0-3 record over their previous eight games, the Vegas Golden Knights approach the playoffs as one of the NHL’s hottest teams.


In order to get the best overall record in the Western Conference, the club beat Seattle twice in the final two games of the regular season. At home, the Golden Knights are 25-15-1.


In April, Vegas’ goalie truly clicked, giving up two goals or fewer in five of the seven games and allowing just 17 goals overall.


Although Jonathan Quick entered the goaltender race, Laurent Brossoit (10-7-3, 2.17, .927) is likely to start in the net.


He permitted eight goals overall over his last five games but kept Seattle to one goal in each of the final two games. Vegas had a 2.80 goals-against average at home and stopped 77.4% of the man-advantage opportunities.


  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Vegas’ last 5 matches.
  • The Vegas Golden Knights are 13-5 SU in their last 18 matches.
  • The Vegas Golden Knights are 12-3 SU in their last 15 matches at home.

Winnipeg Jets vs Vegas Golden Knights. The NHL pick for this game is the Vegas Golden Knights. Rarely does the club with the best conference record approach the postseason with a significant question mark in the goalie position.


Vegas saw four different goalies earn important minutes for the team this season due to the number of injuries to this goaltending corps, and they currently rely on Brossoit, who only played in one playoff game in his career and allowed two goals on eight shots.


The opening game of a playoff series is typically when the underdog is able to win a game.


With Hellebuyck having a ton of experience (and success), and the Golden Knights goalie being a touch unsteady, expect the Jets to win Game 1.


They will give the Golden Knights anything they can handle because they were playing well lately as well. The Vegas Golden Knights will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
