St. Louis Blues vs Winnipeg Jets NHL Show Me State Showdown

St. Louis Blues vs Winnipeg Jets NHL Show Me State Showdown

St. Louis Blues: Aim to continue winning ways versus Winnipeg

Few rivalries are more lopsided than the one St. Louis and Winnipeg are currently involved in. Since joining the Central Division together at the start of the 2013-14 NHL season, the Blues have posted a 10-1-2 record versus the Jets. That said, it’s rarely a walk in the park for St. Louis as ten games have been decided by one goal and the Blues have outscored the Jets by a 38-28 margin during those thirteen contests. St. Louis skidded into the New Year with four losses - though three of those games went into extra time. Still lacking a winning consistency, the Blues have earned at least one point in eleven of their last fourteen matches. Despite being outshot by a 39-24 count versus Minnesota, the Blues posted a 4-1 win over the Wild in their last action on Saturday night.

Winnipeg Jets: Beginning to face the reality of NHL 2015-16 being another lost season

After playoff hockey returned to Winnipeg last season, for the first time in 19 years, a continuance was expected during the 2015-16 NHL campaign. A 7-3-1 October start buoyed the expectations but things have gone downhill since. After the Jets went 10-15-1 to close out 2015, the New Year hasn’t acted as a new beginning as Winnipeg has posted a 5-8-1 record over 14 games in 2016. Following a 1-5-0 slide, during which they were outscored by a 21-14 margin, the Jets posted a 4-2 win over the Avalanche in Colorado on Saturday to bring a one-game winning streak into St. Louis. A lack of scoring (2.62 GFPG) weak goaltending (2.88 GAPG) and leagues second most penalty minutes (652) have all contributed to Winnipeg occupying the Central Division cellar.

St. Louis vs Winnipeg NHL Game Day Call: Jets rookie Connor Hellebuyck (12-10-1 GAA 2.31) battles Blues eight-year veteran Brian Elliott (12-7-5 GAA 2.13) in the goaltending duel tonight. Hellebuyck gave up three goals and was pulled after 4:33 minutes of play during a 5-3 home loss to Carolina during his last start – his second straight game that the Jets suffered a 5-3 loss. Elliot has been solid allowing ten goals over his last seven starts. The Blues will be without defenseman Alex Pietrangelo who is out with a knee injury while Winnipeg is one of the healthiest teams in the league. St. Louis is looking for a season series sweep after the Blues won the first three matches this year by an 11-7 margin. Back the Blues with a five-unit wager on the SportsInteraction money line.
