Hockey fans got a front row seat Wednesday night and found out why Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury is a leading candidate for this year’s Conn Smythe Trophy. Fleury was the best player on the ice in game three backstopping the expansion Knights to a 4-2 win.

Jets vs Golden Knights Stanley Cup Playoffs Betting Analysis

So far in three games this series, in regards to game totals, there has been an under, an over, and a push, so it’s anyone’s best guess what happens next in game four. Going deeper into the numbers, these two teams are getting to know each other every single game, so it might open up the scoring. The Jets are 4-0 to the over in their last four road games, while the Golden Knights are 4-0 to the over in their last four home games. The Golden Knights are 14-2 to the over in the last 16 Friday night games. Speaking of Friday nights, the Jets haven’t lost a Friday night game since February 9 (St. Louis) and since that time are a perfect 7-0, including 3-0 in the post season.

Winnipeg Jets

For the first time this post season (and first time since mid-March) the Jets have lost two consecutive games, and now are down two games to one to the Golden Knights. Mark Scheifele scored a pair of goals in the loss in game three, and now has 14 this post season, with 11 of them on the road – which is a new NHL record. His second goal of the game surpassed Joe Mullen’s mark of ten away goals in a post season. Game three was also Scheifele’s ninth multi-point game this post season, but he has some work to do if he’s going to set that record, as the great Mario Lemieux had 14 multi-point games in 1991 leading the Pittsburgh Penguins to a Stanley Cup.

Of note, Nik Ehlers was a late scratch for the Jets and did not play game three because of an undisclosed injury. The team will be quiet on the subject, and if he is unable to play Friday, expect Jack Roslovic to get his second straight start.

Vegas Golden Knights

Great goaltending and timely scoring was the answer in game three for the Golden Knights, Marc-Andre Fleury was the game’s first star stopping 33 of 35 shots he faced, while Jonathan Marchessault scored another pair of goals (eight for the post season) in back-to-back games helping his team to a win.

Vegas is now an impressive 5-1 on home ice this post season – tops in the NHL. The team has made it a habit (a good one) of capitalizing on the mistakes of the opposition, case in point, three out of the four goals scored where off Jets turnovers. There may not be a faster team in the NHL, and it should come to no one’s surprise if why they have a lead in this series.
