Vegas Golden Knights
In the last seven games at home, Vegas have experienced only one defeat by San Jose Sharks and that was after the extra time. They are playing much better at home than as guests, and for this reason, the victory in the last match is very significant. But everything is possible in the playoffs and therefore it is not necessary to announce the winner in advance. The series is equalized and everything is still open. Vegas was not at the top level at the first match of the conference finals. Even after seven minutes they were losing with 3:0 and the winner was already known.
After that, the guests have adjusted their game slightly, but it was insufficient and eventually they lost with 4:2. In the second match, Golden Knights played much better and it paid off in the end. After the first third, they managed to win with 0:2 thanks to goals by Tatar and Audy-Marchessault. The only goal for the home team was scored by Connor. Vegas has fulfilled their objective in the first two games, which is to record one win and make a break.
Winnipeg played great in the first duel against Vegas, but they have completely failed in the second match and are now expecting a tough job. Vegas rarely loses at home and it is certain that Winnipeg will have a much harder job than in their hall. However, the Jets have experienced only one defeat during the last five matches as guests and it was after extra time. On the road to the conference finals, they defeated Minnesota and Predators. In the first match, they defeated the fourth Minnesota, and then in the second match admeasured strengths with the first ranked team of the Western Conference.
Winnipeg had the lead of 3:2 in the series after the five games played and the opportunity to celebrate in their hall and win placement in the big finals. But in the sixth game they played very badly and in the end they experienced a convincing defeat. They played the next match as guests and everyone expected that the Predators would win with the support of their fans. However, the guest players provided a fantastic game and at the end they recorded a victory and achieved a placement in the finals with the victory of 1:5.
Vegas Golden Knights vs. Winnipeg Jets PICK
In the last five mutual matches of these two teams, Winnipeg was the host four times. The last time that Vegas played at home against Winnipeg was in late November last year and then they celebrated with 5:2. Given how they are playing in front of their fans, we would give advantage to Vegas Golden Knights.
