These two clubs are from the Central Division, where St. Louis (39 points in 30 games) is more convincing than Winnipeg (31 in 29).
Moreover, the Jets recently changed their head coach. Paul Maurice fell into some kind of depression, tired of hockey and a pandemic, decided to leave his post.
In the first match without Maurice, the Canadian club fell under Washington (2: 5), having suffered a third defeat in a row.
This is not to say that the Jets are that bad. But St. Louis are looking better with five wins in their last six games.
The Russians are very good, which head coach Craig Berubi often brings into one link.
And in the last match with Dallas (4: 1), we saw how Vladimir Tarasenko made a double (2 + 0), Ivan Barbashev scored two points (1 + 1), and Pavel Buchnevich gave two great passes (0 + 2 ).
And there, in St. Louis, another cool goalkeeper showed up – Charlie Lindgren made his debut in the Blues and immediately won four wins in four games, reflecting an average of 96% of the shots.
I would take a 2.15 odds in this match for the fact that St. Louis will win the final victory in Canada. Now this team looks better, more collected, there is an excellent goalkeeper. And the new Jets coach, Dave Lowry, has yet to figure out how to control his team.
