Winnipeg Jets vs New Jersey Devils predictions

Face-off: 2000 ET, 03/12/2021

Venue: Canada Life Centre

Winnipeg really have been playing better than a tally of just one win in seven outings suggests and New Jersey could feel the backlash.

The Devils also head to Canada Life Centre in a slump after a single victory in five outings, so this is a big chance for the Jets to shine.

We’re happy to take 1.9 for a home win in regular time to start off our Winnipeg Jets vs New Jersey Devils predictions.

Winnipeg Jets Odds

It’s becoming a recurring theme but Winnipeg had more shots and a greater number of chances than Arizona when beaten 1-0 by the Coyotes.

After a welcome two-day break, head coach Paul Maurice opted to tweak his forward line in practice, pinpointing Nikolaj Ehlers as a bigger threat.

Looking back on the Arizona game, he said on the club website: “We had 26 ‘C’ chances and we have to figure out a way to turn those into B’s and A’s.

“That’s what we dealt with. I don’t feel we’re very far from playing the very best hockey we’ve ever played here.”

A run of eight games in eight different time zones also took its toll on the Jets, who will hopefully now be just a touch sharper to loose pucks.

New Jersey Devils Odds

New Jersey showed plenty of spirit in last night’s loss in Minnesota, battling back from 3-0 down to only trail by one before ultimately succumbing 5-2.

Tomas Tatar and Ryan Graves hit the target while Dougie Hamilton provided assists for both goals.

However, head coach Lindy Ruff did not hold back when criticising another laboured defensive display.

“Our defence is better than that,” he declared. “Our defence had as tough a night as I’ve seen them.”

The Devils do tend to score most of their goals in the third period, posting figures of 12-16-30 this term.

In fact, only three teams have netted more times in the final stanza – Florida, Edmonton and Anaheim.

Let’s add 2.3 for both teams to score at least once in the closing 20 minutes here to our NHL predictions.
