The Flames are in the driver’s seat in this series with the Jets and they are in the same position at Sports Interaction.

The Lines Management team at SIA has listed the Flames as -165 favourites to win game four. They are also -159 favourites to win the series in four games.

The Jets would need to win the next two games to advance. If they were to complete that task, that number is currently +354. The Jets are also the longest of longshots to win the Western Conference at +3600.

Calgary Flames

The Flames were very strong on the forecheck and the result was a 6-2 game two win. Three of the Flames goals were the result of strong defensive plays in the Jets zone. The Jets made plenty of mistakes in game two and the Flames capitalized.

Sean Monahan had his best night this post season with a goal and two assists. Mikael Backlund, Johnny Gaudreau and Elias Lindholm each chipped in with a goal an assist on the evening. In total, 10 Flames players recorded at least a point in the game.

Winnipeg Jets

Nikolaj Ehlers was the best Jets forward on the ice in game three picking up a goal for the second straight game. He led all Jets with six shots on goal.

Throughout this series, the Jets have given the Flames plenty of opportunities with the man-advantage. In the first three games, the Flames have had 14 power-play chances and have scored five goals. That’s a conversion rate of 35.7 percent, which is second only to the Edmonton Oilers in the qualifying round.

The long list of injures continues to grow for the Jets. After missing Mark Scheifele, Patrik Laine and Mason Appleton in game two, Matthieu Perreault left game three after a hit from Sam Bennett. His status is unknown for game four. Defenceman Tucker Poolman took a hard shot to the face and left the game, but later returned with a full cage. In 57 regular season games Poolman blocked 59 shots.

Another cause of concern has been the team’s play in the second period of the series. Through three games the team has allowed eight second period goals. After relatively strong first periods, this team has letdown in the second frame.
