Winnipeg Jets vs Vegas Golden Knights Predictions 4/20/2023

 

The Vegas Golden Knights finished first in the Western Conference after winning 5 of their final seven regular-season games.

 

Prior to the 2023 Stanley Cup, Vegas had high expectations, but their opening game against the Jets was a total disaster.

 

It was a huge letdown that the Golden Knights managed just 17 shots on Connor Hellebuyck while they had the man advantage and went 0 for 3. 

 

Last Tuesday, Laurent Brossoit allowed four goals on 30 shots. Jonathan Quick went 5-2-2 with a 3.13 GAA and .901 save percentage since joining Vegas in March, but the 30-year-old goalkeeper was 7-0-3 with a 2.17 GAA and .927 save percentage during the previous regular season.

 

Logan Thompson (lower body), who was 21-13-3 with a 2.65 GAA and .915 SV% in 2022–23, is not available for the Golden Knights.

 

They completed the regular season scoring 3.26 goals per game (twelfth in the NHL) and allowing 2.74 goals per game (twelfth).

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Vegas’ last 6 matches.
  • The Vegas Golden Knights are 13-6 SU in their last 19 matches.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Vegas’ last 9 matches at home.

Winnipeg Jets vs Vegas Golden Knights. The NHL pick for this game is the Vegas Golden Knights. The Golden Knights can only improve upon their performance from Game 1.

 

Vegas defeated Winnipeg in three games during the regular season (5-2, 2-1 in overtime, and 6-5), thus, anticipated the Golden Knights to respond favorably and tie the Jets’ playoff series.

 

Winnipeg relies on its defense and one of the NHL’s top goalies, Connor Hellebuyck. Despite their five-goal effort in the opener, the Jets’ attack is far from being at an elite level.

 

In Game 2, the Golden Knights will be considerably more aggressive. Since avoiding a two-game deficit is imperative for Vegas, they have a wealth of seasoned players who will know how to handle intense pressure.

 

The Vegas Golden Knights will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
