Vegas Golden Knights Fantasy Spin

Marc-Andre Fleury will start on Friday against Winnipeg. Fleury stopped 13 of 17 shots in a 4-1 loss to Los Angeles on Sunday. He has a 26-15-5 record, 2.76 GAA, and .906 save percentage in 47 contests this season.

Winnipeg Jets Fantasy Spin

Connor Hellebuyck allowed one goal on 26 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win against the Minnesota Wild. Hellebuyck allowed an even-strength goal to Rasmus Ristolainen midway through the second period, but that was all the Michigander allowed. And that goal came after he was already staked to a 3-0 lead. He improved to 28-21-5 with a 2.64 goals-against average and .920 save percentage across his 55 appearances. The Jets are back at it Friday night at MTS Centre against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Our Prediction

In looking at the trends for this matchup, I can see why bettors must have been hammering the under to the total that oddsmakers adjusted the total. The under has been highly profitable, cashing in four of the last five meetings between these two teams in Winnipeg with one push. The under is also 4-1-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams overall, is 3-0-1 in the Golden Knights’ last four games and is 3-1-2 in Vegas’ last six games playing on two days of rest. On the other side, the under has been even better, cashing in five of the Jets’ last six home games and going 5-1-1 in Winnipeg’s last seven games overall.

Friday NHL Prediction: Golden Knights/Jets UNDER 5.5
