The NHL Western Conference Finals bring more action this evening at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as the Winnipeg Jets will clash with the Vegas Golden Knights in game three of their best-of-seven series. The Golden Knights were able to win the second game to put the series to 1-1.
Winnipeg Jets Form
The Winnipeg Jets have been one of the best teams in the National Hockey League this year. The Jets were also a very strong home team all season and they did win their first four playoffs games here at home. However, it seems that their home form dropped as they have now lost three of their last four at Bell MTS Centre. They have also lost game two by a score of 3-1. The Jets away record for this season is 24-23 and they have averaged 2.98 goals per game and have allowed 2.77 goals per game in those games.
On the offensive side of the game, Winnipeg has been in a solid form in the playoffs as they are the 3rd best team in scoring at 3.43 goals per game, converting on 28.2% of their chances. On the defensive side of the ice, they have some solid stats as well as they are also on the 3rd spot in goals conceded, letting in an average of 2.36 goals per game, allowing teams to convert on 25.7% of their chances.
Vegas Golden Knights Form
The Golden Knights are the biggest surprise this season. They had achieved great results getting this far and they surely have a potential for more. Their biggest strength is their defensive and timely offense. They were able to walk away with the win in game two and have now tied up this series at 1-1. Now the Golden Knights will aim to keep the momentum and to continue their home ground domination. Their home record for the season is 33-13 and they have averaged 3.57 goals per game and have allowed 2.39 goals per game.
On the offensive side of the game, Vegas has below average stats the postseason so far as they are placed on the 10th spot in scoring at 2.83 goals per game, converting on 18.2% of their chances. On the defensive side of the game, the Knights have been very strong during the postseason, as they are the 2nd best team in goals allowed, conceding an average of 1.83 goals per game, allowing the opposing teams to convert on 19.2% of their chances.
The Winnipeg Jets have been playing well on the road in recent games. On the other side, the Golden Knights have been very strong at home. Also, they are a good offensive team this season, and their defensive record at home is very good. Both of these teams tend to defend well and have a strong offensive firepower. However, it seems that both teams have the strategy to build their game from the back, so I can’t see more than 5 goals in this game. Go for under 5.5
