The Edmonton Oilers and San Jose Sharks meet Tuesday in NHL action at SAP Center.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after splitting their last 12 games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 28.9 percent of their power play opportunities. Leon Draisaitl leads Edmonton with 14 goals, Connor McDavid has 19 assists and James Neal has 51 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 2.5 goals per game and are killing 84.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Mike Smith has given up 21 goals on 285 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed 21 goals on 292 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed three or less goals in six of their last seven games.
The San Jose Sharks need a win after losing seven of their last 11 games. The San Jose Sharks are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 22.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Evander Kane leads San Jose with 10 goals, Brent Burns has 13 assists and Logan Couture has 42 shots on goal. Defensively, the San Jose Sharks are allowing 3.7 goals per game and are killing 90.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Aaron Dell has given up 19 goals on 156 shots faced and Martin Jones has allowed 43 goals on 383 shots. The San Jose Sharks have allowed three or more goals in six of their last eight games.
The Oilers are 8-0 in their last 8 games as an underdog, 4-0 in their last 4 games playing on 1 days rest and 117-239 in their last 356 games as a road underdog. The Sharks are 5-2 in their last 7 vs. Western Conference, 1-4 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 1-4 in their last 5 vs. Pacific. The under is 7-1 in Oilers last 8 road games. The over is 15-6 in Sharks last 21 games as a favorite. The Oilers are 0-4 in the last 4 meetings. The road team is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The San Jose Sharks have won seven of the last eight meetings against the Oilers, including each of the last four meetings. The Sharks are also playing improved hockey over the last week, but they're still a team that struggles defensively and not a club I completely trust given their struggles overall. The Edmonton Oilers have been hit or miss, but they have thrived in the underdog role and have the offense to expose the Sharks defensive hiccups. I'll take a shot with the Oilers and the plus money on the road.
