This looks set to be a huge opportunity for the home side on Wednesday, as the Jets could pull clear of the Flames in their hunt for a top-eight finish. Winnipeg currently sits in the coveted final playoff spot in the West, and they come into this game after winning each of their previous two. Meanwhile, they have claimed five victories in their previous ten.

The Jets home form throughout the season has been solid, as they have gone 24-12-2 at MTS Centre. Their most recent win was picked up with a home advantage, as they landed a huge 6-1 win over the New Jersey Devils earlier this week. Nikolaj Ehlers was the star in that game with two goals.

While it may not be a must-win game for the Flames on Wednesday, their chances of achieving a playoff finish this term will be taken firmly out of their hands if they are beaten in Winnipeg. At present, they sit ninth in the overall standings, and sit two points behind the Jets.

They come into this game after suffering defeat in their previous outing. But, they have still won six of their previous ten matches, with just three regulation losses having been suffered over that period. However, they have gone 17-11-11 on the road this season.


This is a key game for both teams in their hunt for a playoff place this season. However, we are keen to side with the home team, as they have been in excellent form over their previous three games in the NHL.
