Pittsburgh -140 Total 5
The Winnipeg Jets have enjoyed an up and down season that has only been marked by the consistency of their strong goal keeping and defensive lines. The Jets are 3rd in the Central Division and the owners of a 7-5-1 record. They'll be defending the MTS Centre from the Pittsburgh Penguins this Thursday night. The Penguins are 8-2-1 and 1st in the Metropolitan Division. With a win against Minnesota in their rearview mirror they'll look to string it together with a few more starting tomorrow night.
Pittsburgh is first in the league in offensive firepower as they are averaging 4.1 goals per game. Their strong offense has been buoyed by their incredible power play abilities. They convert 41% of the time that they have the PP on their side. Sidney Crosby has been vintage this year and he has 12 assists to show for his hard work. Chris Kunitz leads the team with 8 goals.
The Winnipeg Jets are a lacking offensive team and it is starting to show as they wear down late in games. Their defense, lead by Bryan Little and Tobias Enstrom, has been universally solid but that's about all that they have going for them. If they can't stay tight on defense this game will quickly get out of hand.
