MINNESOTA is clinging to their playoff spot. So long as they win, they stay on the ladder. With BOS and STL on deck, MIN must be feeling like this is their last chance to snag a win. Ultimately, there is almost an anti-lookover psychology in place for MINNESOTA.

SoS makes it clear that MINNESOTA is fierce and in top form.
Considering that MINNESOTA is trying to keep their Wildcard spot, I’d say that they’re in top form in order to do exactly that.
MINNESOTA is missing Rupp and Granlund but they’ve been playing like a team possessed and these aren’t ‘make or break’ omissions to their lineup.
WINNIPEG is missing Buff with a torn muscles, and Ladd will be sitting out for undisclosed reasons. These are absolutely ‘make of break’ injuries for the Jets roster to suffer, much like Scheifele and Thorburn a month ago.
Winnipeg does not have depth and with Ladd and Byfuglien out, it’s very difficult to understand where their scoring opportunities could come from.
The injury considerations are a monstrous edge for Minnesota.
ATSStats have these teams perfectly even in all categories except in the Head to Head category where there is a huge edge with MINNESOTA:
|When MINNESOTA played as Favourite- Vs WINNIPEG||9-3-1|
|When MINNESOTA played as Favourite- With Total between 5.0 and 5.5||48-27-0|
|When WINNIPEG played as Home Team- in the month of April||5-30-2|
|When WINNIPEG played as Home Underdog- Vs CENTRAL Division||3-12-0|
|When WINNIPEG played as Underdog- in the month of April||3-27-0|
|When WINNIPEG played as Underdog- Vs MINNESOTA||1-9-0|
|When WINNIPEG played as Home Underdog- in the month of April||0-13-2|
|When WINNIPEG played as Home or Away Team- Vs MINNESOTA||3-12-1|
The only conclusion here can be that MINNESOTA brings a gangload of value.
WINNIPEG doesn’t look like it’s in a position to win historically speaking.
WINNIPEG’s roster is gutted and it should be a very long 60 minutes for WPG fans.
Tonight’s Prediction: MINNESOTA to win 5-3.
