Montreal Canadiens vs. Winnipeg Jets News, Analysis, and Picks
The Winnipeg Jets' second-round struggles continued last night against the Montreal Canadiens. The Jets were outplayed for the seventh straight game. They now face a do-or-die situation on the second night of a back-to-back in Montreal.
Winnipeg posted an expected goals-for percentage at 40.0% at five-on-five, dropping to 34.8% across all strengths. The Jets put forth their best offensive effort of the second round by attempting 29 scoring chances, 11 of which came from high-danger areas. Still, they were let down by suspect defensive play yet again as the Habs were able to put up 39 scoring chances and 14 high-danger opportunities. The crazy part about the Jets' struggles is that their PDO remains above 1.000, illustrating how much they overachieved in the first round against the Edmonton Oilers.
The good news is that the Jets' recent history on the second night of a back-to-back is impressive. Winnipeg is 3-0-0 over their last three such contests, scoring a combined 14 goals. The Habs have been vulnerable in this spot over their last seven, going 2-5-0, giving up 28 goals, and scoring both wins in overtime.
Having a primary goalie start both games of a back-to-back is a big ask, and that's reflected in both goalies' metrics. Carey Price has started both games of a back-to-back in the playoffs on three occasions throughout his career. He's stopped 90.0% of shots in this spot and allowed eight goals in 178:01 minutes of action for a 2.70 goals-against-average. Connor Hellebuyck has fared worse, stopping 88.7 shots with a 2.92 goals-against-average in 164.37 minutes.
We're not expecting the Jets to go down without a fight, and both goalies have suspect metrics playing on the second night of a back-to-back. It's on that basis that we are taking the over at +122.
The Habs and Jets also remain the only series in the second round that hasn't required overtime to declare a winner, and they are running out of chances to get there. Taking a 60-minute tie on the second night of a back-to-back is a scenario we're comfortable backing.
