In their second game following the All-Star break, the Jets and Golden Knights are looking to pick up where they left off. Led by likely Hart Trophy candidate, Blake Wheeler (14 goals, 42 assists), the Jets have been as solid as any team in the league this season.

The Jets have a strong balance on offense and defense. Their high-scoring offense ranks fifth in the NHL with 3.24 goals scored per game. The Jets stingy defense  sits seventh by allowing just 2.65 goals per game. Winnipeg has amassed an impressive +0.59 goal differential through 51 games.

At the opposite end of the ice is the surprise team of the NHL season. Vegas has captured the attention of hockey fans across the nation. This group of castaway players has put together the second-best record in the entire league.

Vegas has been the model of consistency this season. They have nine players tallying at more than 20 points. The team is ranking in the top six in the league in both goals for (3.39) and goals allowed (2.61). This is truly a battle between complete teams.
