Latest Odds : VEG -175 Total 6.5
The Jets are looking like they will lock up a playoff berth soon, but they still have not clinched yet so they cannot really breathe easy yet. However, the Jets are a team that has been able to play really well on the yea and finally has topped Nashville in the standings and while they only have a point lead it is a lead that the Jets should be able to build upon coming into this game here.
Connor Hellebuyck is the goalie the Jets have relied on most of the season with a total of30 wins. He has a 2.97 goals against average, but he has managed to turn away 91% of the shots that have been sent towards him on the year.
The Golden Knights look like they will be heading to the playoffs again this season as they are sitting in third place in the Pacific and have a 9 point lead over the Coyotes. The Golden Knights are only 7 points back from the Sharks in the standings as well, which is a gap that the Golden Knights could make up, but it could be a stretch for the Golden Knights.
Marc-Andre Fleury who struggled early in the year bounced back nicely and has a total of 35 wins on the year. He has managed to get a 2.46 goals against average, but also has turned away 91.4% of the shots that have been sent towards him on the year.
