Winnipeg Jets Fantasy Spin
Connor Hellebuyck surrendered three goals on 34 shots in a 6-3 win over the Kings on Tuesday night. The 26-year old netminder had a solid performance and was especially sound in the second period, where he stopped all 15 shots that he faced and allowed Winnipeg to go from a 1-0 deficit to a 3-1 lead from one intermission to another. The win gives Hellebuyck a 26-18-5 record with a 2.71 goals-against average and .919 save percentage so far this campaign.
Ottawa Senators Fantasy Spin
Craig Anderson allowed four goals on 27 shots, but received plenty of goal support as the Senators topped the Sabres by a final score of 7-4 on Tuesday night. The 38-year old was beat twice in the opening 10:12, but four straight goals by the Senators had them going into the first intermission with a 4-2 lead. Anderson then let the Sabres get within a goal on two occasions, but was solid enough to never give up the lead and was rewarded with the win. His record this season is now 9-13-2 which is accompanied by a 3.22 goals-against average and a .900 save percentage.
The over is 4-0 in the last four meetings between these two teams and has cashed in four straight Jets games when they’re favored on the road. The under is also 10-2 in the Jets’ last 12 games coming off a win, is 4-1-1 in their last six road games and is 13-5 in their last 18 games versus Eastern Conference competition. The over is 6-1 in Senators’ last seven games following a win, 5-1 in their last six games in the fourth game of a 4-in-6 days situation and is 5-2 in their last seven games when their opponent scores five goals or more in its previous contest.
