Winnipeg Jets @ Edmonton Oilers Tips


The Winnipeg Jets fly to Edmonton on Thursday to take on their close North Division rivals the Edmonton Oilers. It will be the fourth meeting this season between these two teams, with Winnipeg leading the series 2-1.

On Tuesday the Jets and the Oilers played out a sensational eleven goal thriller that saw Winnipeg take what looked like a decisive 4-1 lead, only for Edmonton to come roaring back and push them all the way before finally going down 6-5.

On Thursday Edmonton will be out for revenge, but I see Winnipeg tightening up their defence and handing the Oilers another defeat in a hard-fought, low scoring game. 

  • Jets 3rd in the NHL North Division
  • Jets won 9 lost 5 this season 
  • Oilers 4th in the NHL North Division
  • Oilers & Jets just played out an 11 goal thriller 


Head to Head 


These two teams have played each other 44 times previously, with Edmonton leading their head to head 24 wins to 20. However, in the ten matches they have played since the start of 2018, Winnipeg lead 7-3. They have played each other three times in 2021, with the Jets 2-1 up. 

Winnipeg Jets Form 


The Winnipeg Jets are currently 3rd in the NHL North Division, with 19 points. The Jets have won nine games, lost 5 and also lost an overtime shootout, which grants them a point. 

Winnipeg are just a point behind the second placed Montreal Canadians, and could swap places with them if upcoming results go their way. 

The Jets started February with a four match series against the Calgary Flames that finished 2-2. Two matches against the Ottawa Senators came next that ended one apiece. 

On Tuesday Winnipeg began a two-match series with the Edmonton Oilers, winning the opener – an eleven goal war - 6-5. Now comes the rematch.

Edmonton Oilers Form 


The Edmonton Oilers are fourth in the NHL North Division with nine wins and eight defeats. Their 18 points is only two adrift of second placed Montreal, although the Oilers have played two games more than the Canadiens. 

Edmonton began their season with a brutal January that saw them finish the month with three wins and six defeats. February has been far better for the Oilers, with 6 wins against just two defeats. 

Edmonton’s match against Winnipeg on Tuesday was surely one of the very best of this season. The Jets built up a 4-1 lead before the Oilers staged a remarkable comeback during the second period. 

Try as they might, Edmonton couldn’t quite catch Winnipeg, although they came close, eventually losing 6-5. On Thursday the Jets and the Oilers meet again, with Edmonton gunning for revenge.

Verdict

It’s the rematch between the Jets and the Oilers, and after the eleven-goal classic that took place on Tuesday, I’m anticipating a far more cagey performance from Winnipeg. In their first encounter, both teams became so gung-ho over goals, defence went out of the window.
 
This time around, the Jets will keep their shape, but the Oilers have been defensively weak all season. They have a 4-5 home record and have conceded 58 goals.
 
While Edmonton will make things tough, Winnipeg will get their tactics right to win this match by a margin of two goals or less.
