Winnipeg Jets vs. Calgary Flames

This Will Be A Close Game

This is the final game of the regular season between these two and just a few days away from the post season it will be interesting to see who works harder for this win. They both have a win each but the Flams are the ones that are getting the extra home game so the advantage will rest with them. Winnipeg is no stranger to road games, they have had some of their biggest wins come on the road, and the last game that the Jets won against Calgary was on the road.

Winnipeg need to push the tempo to this game, they need to try and find the offensive miss match and capitalize on that. I think this team will be very aggressive on the rebound as they will open their shooting from anywhere, looking to test out the Flames goalie. Blake Wheeler has taken over for this team as he leads them in everything offense related, 67 points, 27 goals and 40 assists, meaning he is always on the move and a very dangerous player.

It won’t be too hard for the Flams their main goal will be to double team Wheeler and post him up on the boards, look to frustrate him. They have to be careful because of his ability to give up the puck in a great location. Calgary must also come out of the gates flying, moving the puck well and protecting it, they have been known to try a little too hard and set themselves up for a counter.

Pick: I like the Jets in this game because of their offense, they flow through the game better and have a much more solid defense. I think that they will shot so much it will only be a matter of time till the first one slips by but I think that the Flams will get this one close. So I say take the over 5 goals, they will look to end the year off with a win, scoring to match the other.
