The Winnipeg Jets are in Las Vegas for a Sunday evening matchup against the Golden Knights. The opening puck drop is set for 7:00 p.m. central time.
This is the final game of the Jets’ three-game road trip and they can make it a perfect trip with a win tonight. The Jets opened the road trip with a 6-4 on Thursday night against the Los Angeles Kings.
Winnipeg then followed that win versus the Kings by spoiling the Arionza Coyotes’ home opener at the Mullett Arena on Friday night. The Jets came back from two goals down and Blake Wheeler scored the overtime winner to give the Jets the first victory by an NHL team at the “Mullett.”
The Winnipeg Jets face off against the Vegas Golden Knights in a battle of teams that are on three-game winning streaks
Just like the Jets, Vegas has won their last three contests. They started their winning streak last Monday at home with a 4-1 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs. Then the next night they beat the San Jose Sharks 4-2 on the road. On Friday, Vegas had a great 4-0 home shutout win over the Anaheim Ducks.
Winnipeg Jets look for a better showing in Vegas
On Thursday, October 20, the Jets made their first trip to the T-Mobile Arena this season and it did not go so well for the Jets.
The Jets allowed four first period goals en route to a 5-2 loss. Winnipeg will be better rested coming into tonight’s game compared to the first meeting between these sides. The Jets beat the Avalanche in overtime the night before their first trip to Vegas this season, but this time, the Jets had a day of rest in between games.
