The Edmonton Oilers and Toronto Maple Leafs meet Friday in NHL action at the Scotiabank Arena.
The Edmonton Oilers look for another win to build on their 3-2 record. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 14.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with three goals, Leon Draisaitl has five assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 19 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 87.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 16 goals on 171 shots faced.
The Toronto Maple Leafs look for another win to build on their 3-2 record. The Toronto Maple Leafs are averaging three goals per game and are scoring on 37.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Mitch Marner leads Toronto with three goals, Justin Holl has four assists and Auston Matthews has 27 shots on goal. Defensively, the Toronto Maple Leafs are allowing three goals per game and are killing 80 percent of their opponents power plays. Frederik Andersen has given up 12 goals on 105 shots faced and Jack Campbell has given up two goals on 19 shots.
The Oilers are 2-5 in their last 7 road games and 3-8 in their last 11 overall. The Maple Leafs are 5-2 in their last 7 home games and 5-2 in their last 7 games as a home favorite. The under is 7-1 in Maple Leafs last 8 home games. The under is 9-4 in Maple Leafs last 13 overall. The Oilers are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in Toronto and 8-20 in the last 28 meetings.
Both of these teams are in similar shape, as the offensive talent is there and they can light it up, but we also know it's only a matter of time before the defense falls on its face. The difference here is the Maple Leafs have beaten up on the Oilers over the years, which includes wins in seven of the last nine meetings. I like the Maple Leafs to get back on track with a victory here. I'll lay the reasonable juice.
