The NHL brings more action on Thursday as the Vancouver Canucks will clash with the Winnipeg Jets at the Bell MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The Canucks will head into this game on the wings of a 3-2 win over the Penguins and on the other side, the Jets lost their last game with a score of 5-4 at home to the Oilers. The Jets were the better team last season as they won the three games against the Canucks.
Vancouver Canucks Form
The Canucks had a terrible season last year. It came out to be their 3rd season in a row that they missed the playoffs. However, they have been playing well this season so far. They have 3 wins in their last 3 away games and it seems that they are on the right track.
They were able to beat Tampa Bay, Pittsburgh and Florida and those games and perhaps the win against the Penguins came as a surprise.
Vancouver is placed on the 7th spot in the league in scoring at 3.67 goals per game and 17th spot in goals allowed at 3.17 goals per game.
Winnipeg Jets Form
The Jets were one of the better teams last season. It seems that this season they got some solid reinforcements and it is expected that they will be challenging for the Stanley Cup.
In their last game, they fell to Edmonton at home in OT by a score of 5-4. They will need to improve as the Canucks are a solid team that can surprise them.
The Jets were one of the best offensive teams in the league last year, but they are currently 24th in the league in scoring at 2.50 goals per game and 10th in goals allowed, letting in an average of 2.67 goals per game so far.
The Canucks are one of the teams that are in a good form at the moment. They have been playing well in their away games and they have a good chance in this game. However, the Jets are the better team and after an average start of the season, they need to start picking up some wins. I expect that the Jets will win this game.
