Look for the game here to be a battle, but the fact that Wheeler is potentially out for the Jets it could make it harder for the Jets to win. However, Montreal is coming in after playing in back to back games and that means Montreal will be tired and unable to play as strong as normal here which leads to the Jets getting the win. Final Score Prediction, Winnipeg Jets win 4-3.
