Ehlers Downs Oilers

After losing their opening two games of the season with a combined score of 13-5, the Winnipeg Jets (1-2-0) put on quite a show against the Edmonton Oilers, snatching a convincing 5-2 victory at Rogers Place on Monday. Despite being outshot 20-11 in the opening 20 minutes, the Jets went into the first intermission with a 2-0 lead. The hosts tied the proceedings at the start of the second frame, but a star turn from Nikolaj Ehlers, who scored 25 snipes for 64 points last term, cut every bit of lifeline the Oilers might have had in the game. The 21-year-old netted twice in a matter of just over a minute in the second period, adding his third of the night with just 1:14 remaining in the final third. This was second NHL hat trick for Ehlers, who also notched an assist.

Mark Scheifele (3 goals, 5 points so far this term) bagged a goal and two helpers. Dmitry Kulikov collected his first goal and assist of the year, while Blake Wheeler (no goals, 4 points) provided three helpers. Goalie Connor Hellebuyck, who allowed two goals on 11 shots in Winnipeg’s season-opening 7-2 defeat against the Toronto Maple Leafs, stepping out in relief to Steve Mason, made his first start of the new campaign with a 37-save performance. He is 1-0-0 so far this year with a 3.04 GAA and a .920 save percentage and has lost his previous start against Vancouver in a 4-1 defeat for the Jets in December 2016. Steve Mason, who has gone 0-2-0 for the current term with a 6.53 GAA and a .831 save percentage, is 6-8-2 versus the Canucks with a 3.15 GAA and a .902 save percentage. The Jets are 9th in most goals scored per game (3.33), top of the league in most goals allowed on average (5.00), 21st in power play with a 13.3% success rate (2-for-15) and 27th in penalty kill with 66.7% efficiency (8-for-12).

Unlucky Loss For Canucks

A spirited effort by the Vancouver Canucks (1-0-1) didn’t bring them their second straight home victory in 2017-18, as the visiting Ottawa Senators claimed a 3-2 shootout win at Rogers Arena on Tuesday. After beating the Edmonton Oilers 3-2 three days earlier, the ‘Nucks faced an Ottawa team, which was missing both Erik Karlsson and Johnny Oduya from its blue line. The hosts, though, couldn’t take advantage of the defensive re-shuffle of their opponent, finishing 2-2 in regulation. Christopher Tanev cancelled out Ottawa’s opener with his first goal of the new campaign in the first period, while Thomas Vanek, who provided the screen for Tanev’s strike, netted his own debut snipe for Vancouver to make it 2-1 in the second frame. Henrik Sedin grabbed two assists.

After the Sens tied the game at 2-2 in the final third to force overtime, Canucks were inches away from a victory, with Tanev hitting the post just 28 seconds into the extra session and Sven Baertschi unable to capitalize on a breakaway. The Senators won the contest after the fifth round of the shootout. Goalie Jacob Markstrom made 40 saves, but conceded two shootout strikes. He has now gone 1-0-1 for the year with a 1.94 GAA and a .948 save percentage and has recorded a 2-4-1 past total against the Winnipeg Jets with a 3.34 GAA and a .901 save percentage. After the first two matchups of the new campaign, the Canucks are 11th in least goals netted per fixture (2.50), 5th in least goals allowed on average (2.00), 34th in power play with a 9.1% success rate (1-for-11) and 11th in penalty kill with 88.9% proficiency (8-for-9).

Trends

Winnipeg

  • Jets are 6-0 in their last 6 games following a win.
  • Jets are 4-1 in their last 5 road games.
  • Jets are 8-2 in their last 10 overall.

Vancouver

  • Canucks are 1-10 in their last 11 when their opponent allows 2 goals or less in their previous game.
  • Canucks are 5-16 in their last 21 home games.

The Canucks have started the new season, playing much better than last term. But they are bound to struggle against offensively more potent teams. The Jets proved in their last outing that they are more than able to take their offensive opportunities. And while Winnipeg has won just two of its last nine trips to Vancouver, the Jets still are 6-1-0 in their last seven overall matchups against the ‘Nucks, including 2-1-0 away at Rogers Arena…

Pick: Winnipeg Jets -125
