Jets vs. Golden Knights Prediction & Pick
It's worth pointing out that the Golden Knights thoroughly dominated Game 3 for two and a half periods before their defense took a step back. Overall, they outshot the Jets 48-34 and scored 5 goals for the second straight game. Vegas has now scored a total of 24 goals in six games against Winnipeg this season.
Vegas has found its groove again after finishing the regular season on a 24-4-5 stretch in its final 33 games. The Jets haven't advanced past the first round of the playoffs since 2012 and the inexperience is haunting them as they go against a team that has made two of the last three conference finals.
I'll trust the better offensive team here and back the Golden Knights to take a commanding 3-1 lead.
Final Score Prediction: Jets: 2 | Golden Knights: 3
Jets vs. Golden Knights Best Bet
The Golden Knights have taken control of this series and the efforts of Jack Eichel have been a big reason why. Eichel has scored 3 goals over the last two games and destroyed the Jets in Game 3 when it came to the power play. Keep in mind that Eichel scored 3 goals in his two appearances against Winnipeg during the regular season, too. Trust the 26-year-old to continue his run of success on Monday.
Bet: Jack Eichel Any Time Goal Scorer (+170)
