Ehlers, Perron listed as questionable 

Jets left winger Nikolaj Ehlers, a 22-year-old former first round draft pick, missed Game 3 of the series with an undisclosed injury and is questionable for tonight. He accounted for 29 goals and 31 assists in 82 regular season games. He has not scored a goal in 13 playoff games, but does have seven assists. Golden Knights left winger David Perron (illness) has not played since Game 1 and is questionable to play tonight. He also has not scored a postseason goal, but has seven assists in nine games. Perron had 16 goals and 50 assists in 70 regular season contests. 

Marchessault scores twice in wins

Las Vegas center Jonathan Marchessault opened and closed the scoring in Game 3 as the hosts doubled up Winnipeg by a 4-2 count. Marchessault scored 35 seconds into the contest for the first period's only goal, while he then put it away with an empty netter as only three seconds remained on the clock for his eighth playoff goal. James Neal and Alex Tuch also scored in the win for the Golden Knights. Marc-Andre Fleury had 33 saves on 35 shots to register the win. Mark Scheifele scored both goals for the Jets as his outstanding postseason continues, now having racked up 14 goals. Connor Hellebuyck made 26 saves on 29 shots in the loss.

NHL Betting Trends

Winnipeg

The over is 4-0 in the last four Jets road games. The over is 3-0-1 in the last four Winnipeg games when its opponent allowed two or less goals in the previous game.

Las Vegas

The over is 4-0 in the last four Golden Knights home games. The over is 14-2 in the last 16 Las Vegas games on Friday.

Prediction:

The Golden Knights are now 34-10-2-1 at home this season and played very well in securing the Game 3 win, frustrating the Jets at many stages of the game. I'm surprised the line has shifted so much in Winnipeg's favor after Las Vegas was favored at -145 last game. My advice is to take advantage of the friendly line on a team that plays so well on its home ice.
