Winnipeg Jets vs Montreal Canadiens NHL North Division Finals Game 3 Preview and Free Picks
With the pressure on the Winnipeg Jets, they do their best to limit anxiety as they hit the road for Sunday's crucial clash with the Montreal Canadiens trailing 2-0 in their second round of the playoff series.
After suffering two losses at home to start the series, including Friday's 1-0 loss, the Jets believe they are more than capable of returning to the series in both games in Montreal.
The Jets have their own history to build on. In 2019, they lost twice at home to the St. Louis Blues, but won two road games before finally withdrawing from the series.
Solving Montreal goalie Carey Price would help the cause, though the Jets will be left without leading center Mark Scheifele due to a three-game suspension.
The Jets could have a player return from injury. Center Paul Stastny, who missed the first two games with an undisclosed injury, traveled to Montreal.
The Canadians, who trailed the Toronto Maple Leafs 3-1 in first-round games before coming back strong, are on a five-game winning streak in which they weren't down. This is the first time this has happened in a single NHL playoff series since the Los Angeles Kings run in 2012.
In turn, the Canadians control the pace of the game with quick starts.
Price's timely offense and play, which shows why he has been among the best goalkeepers in the league since he was a rookie in 2007-08, were also important factors. In nine playoff games, Price recorded 2.11 goals against average and a .935 save percentage to lead the underdog Canadians.
