Jets vs Canucks Preview (Mar 22 & 24, 2021)

Tonight the Winnipeg Jets will continue their seven-game road trip with game one of two versus the Vancouver Canucks. 8-6-1 is the Jets road record this year. The Jets are looking to snap their first multi-game losing streak this year, having lost their last 2 games to the Oilers. Saturday night’s loss suffered at the hands of the Edmonton Oilers marked the first time all season that Winnipeg lost sequential games.

This Canucks series provides a nice opportunity, given that the Jets’ season-high 4-game winning streak began with 2 wins against Vancouver on February 19th and 21st, before winning both matchups with the Habs to close out the month of February.

The Jets are 3-2-0 versus the Canucks this year.

Streaking Jets

Mark Scheifele sits at fifth place in scoring with 37 points. His 12 goals and 25 assist in 31 matchups this season makes him a threat to all opponents.

Tying Schiefele with his 10th multi-point contest of the season this past Saturday night, Nikolaj Ehlers is another Jet to pay close attention to.

Rookie defenceman Logan Stanley’s +8 rating has him at second place among rookies league-wide.

Milestone Watch

Kyle Connor needs 2 power-play goals to pass Andrew Ladd for ninth place in franchise history, and he can pass Dustin Byfuglien for ninth place in overall scoring by getting 2 goals of any kind.

Josh Morrissey is 2 assists shy of 100 for his National Hockey League career.

Mathieu Perreault can reach 200 assists for his NHL career with 1.

Tucker Poolman, if active for these 2 matchups, will reach 100 games for his NHL career.
