Jets drop final game before break
Winnipeg had its four-game winning streak snapped nine days ago with a 4-2 loss at Dallas to drop to 31-15-2 on the season. The Jets trailed 3-0 through two periods before Brendan Lamieux put them on the board in the third on an assist by Mason Appleton. Kyle Connor trimmed it to 3-2 a couple minutes later on assists from Blake Wheeler and Mark Scheifele. Dallas put it away on a power play goal with 1:45 remaining. Connor Hellebuyck suffered the loss as he surrendered four goals on 39 shots.
Flyers stay hot at Canadiens
Philadelphia won its third straight game to head into the All-Star Break as it topped host Montreal by a count of 5-2. Travis Konecny opened the scoring in the second period on assists courtesy of Oskar Lindblom and Shayne Gostisbehere. James van Riemsdyk added another goal for the Flyers to make it 2-0 through two periods with Robert Hagg and Konecny recording assists. Nolan Patrick made it 3-0 seven-plus minutes into the third period on assists by Wayne Simmonds and Scott Laughton. After Montreal cut it to 3-1, Philly put the lead back at three goals on a score courtesy of Patrick on assists by Jakub Voracek and Gostisbehere. The Canadiens trimmed it back to 4-2 with four minutes remaining, but the Flyers added anther goal in the final minute by Michael Raffl on an assist by Sean Couturier.

NHL Betting Trends
The Jets are 9-4 in their last 13 road games. Winnipeg is 18-40-2 in the last 60 meetings.
The Flyers are 4-12 in their last 16 home games. The home team is 6-0 in the last six meetings.
Winnipeg is the better team here and while the Flyers played well before the break, their season as a whole has been disappointing. Breaks also have a way to halting positive momentum. I'm taking the Jets here as they should find plent of offense to get the job done against a leaky Philadelphia back line.
