After a disappointing sequence in opposition to the Edmonton Oilers, the Winnipeg Jets will probably be trying to proper the ship in opposition to the Canucks. Vancouver haven’t been the category of the North, per se, however their goaltending in Thatcher Demko and younger goal-scoring expertise has held agency. Winnipeg gained’t be capable to chill out round attackers just like the pesky however expert Nils Hoglander. The one benefit is that Vancouver’s backside 2 traces and protection are on shaky floor.
For the Canucks, they’ll should do a greater job defending Demko’s crease. Vancouver has been fairly leaky in defending the central slot space, a typical theme over the previous few seasons. The Canucks really share a few of Winnipeg’s points, however don’t have the identical ahead depth to paper over their errors. The surprisingly nice begin for Demko, although, offers the Canucks a combating probability in each outing.
