St. Louis Blues vs Winnipeg Jets - Predictions and Odds

How to Watch

Where: Bell MTS Centre – Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada

When: Wednesday, April 10, 8PM EST

How (TV/Radio): Sportsnet, TVA, NHL, Fox Sports Midwest | WFAN

St. Louis Blues (Away)

Head Coach: Craig Berube {All-Time 113-77-34 STL, PHI}

The St. Louis Blues had a fairly weak, under .500 first half of the season. But heading into the playoffs, they ride a second-half of the season high and that momentum shows no sign of slowing down. Although finishing one place behind the Winnipeg Jets, they are the only team that finished lower in the rankings but is favored to win their first series.

Notable numbers for the Blues this season include having the tenth best powerplay in the league, the sixth best faceoff percentage, fifth fewest goals allowed, fourth fewest goals against, eighth fewest penalty minutes, and ninth best penalty kill percentage.

Although reports still show several skaters from the St. Louis Blues roster listed as day-to-day with injuries, it should be noted that as of one day ago, all 26 players were seen skating at the team’s practice.

A big part of the Blues second-half of the season run was goaltender Jordan Binnington. Binnington went 24-5-1 this season and is expected to get the start in game one against the Jets. Binnington managed a 1.89 goals against average, .927 save percentage, and five shutouts during the regular season.

Winnipeg Jets (Home)

Head Coach: Paul Maurice {All-Time 695-619-99-116 WPG, CAR, TOR, HAR}

The Jets had one hell of a season but struggled on the backend. They finished the season with a record of 47-30-5, going 4-5-1 in their final ten games.

That said, they were still hanging with the best statistically by the season’s end. The Jets finished seventh in goals for, fourth in powerplay percentage, tenth in faceoff percentage, and fifth in shooting percentage. But their defensive numbers show a different team. They ranked no higher than 15th overall in all major defensive stats – their worst being ranked 27th in both shots allowed and penalty minutes taken.

Goaltender Connor Hellebuyck is expected to get the start for the Winnipeg Jets. Hellebuyck finished the regular season with a 34-23-3 record, a 2.90 goals against average, a .913 save percentage, and managed two shutouts.

These two teams last met in the regular season on December 7, 2018. The St. Louis Blues defeated the Jets in a hard-fought battle that ended with a 1-0 score.

Questions to answer

Can the St. Louis Blues carry their late season momentum into the playoffs?

Will the Winnipeg Jets be able to regroup from their season’s weak finish and get back to their winning ways, starting fresh in game one at home?

Can the Jets offense figure out stud goaltender Jordan Binnington? And can they figure him out enough to win four games?
