Betting preview for Montreal-Winnipeg Round 2 series

By Andy MacNeil  ( 


After a thrilling first round of playoff hockey, the final matchup has been set for Round 2 after the Canadiens and Jets pulled off unlikely victories, albeit in very different ways.

No. 4 Montreal Canadiens vs. No. 3 Winnipeg Jets

This is a different Jets team than the one I was tasked with handicapping in heading into their series versus the Edmonton Oilers. It was unknown whether Nikolaj Ehlers, the Jets’ best forward, would be available in the first round. Ehlers did miss the first two games, but when he returned in the third game, he was a difference-maker and played a big part in helping the Jets pull off the unlikely sweep. The Jets are now a much easier team to gauge entering the second round.
