The NHL is back on Monday evening as the Winnipeg Jets head to the Canadian Tire Centre to face the Ottawa Senators. The Jets go into this game after an impressive 3-1 away win over the Maple Leafs. Their opponents, the Senators will look to bounce back after a 2-0 away defeat at the hands of the Red Wings.
Winnipeg Jets Form
The Jets have been enjoying a solid season as they secured their place in the playoffs this year. Winnipeg has been on a good winning momentum as they won seven of their last eight games. The Jets away form is 18-21 combined with an average 2.72 goals per game and have allowed 2.72 goals per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the ice, Winnipeg has been very good so far this season as they are placed on the 6th spot in scoring at 3.28 goals per game. The Jets have converted 23.4% of their chances. At the defensive side of the game, they have been very solid as they are ranked 5th in goals allowed, letting in 2.63 goals per game, allowing the opponents to convert on 18.0% of their chances.
Ottawa Senators Form
The Ottawa Senators have a really bad season. There is no sign from that team that was showing impressive results last season. The Senators have lost seven of their last eight games including the latest away loss at the Red Wings. Ottawa is facing a lot of challenges this year and they will need a serious rebuilding plan if they want to complete next year.
The Senators have been poor at the offensive part of the game as they are now ranked at 25th in the league in scoring at 2.67 goals per game, converting only 16.5% of their chances. At the defensive end of the ice, they have also been in poor form so far as they are on the 30th spot in goals allowed, letting in 3.42 goals per game, allowing the opposing teams to convert on 24.2% of their chances.
The Jets are still in the fight for the Central Division and that will be their aim in the remaining games. They also have one of the best offenses in the league. On the other side, we have the depleted Senators team that is already looking at the postseason period after having a bad season. It is a no-brainer for that the Jets will have a free-scoring game and beat the Senators.
