The Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers meet Wednesday in NHL action at the Rogers Place.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 22.2 percent of their power play opportunities. Nikolaj Ehlers leads Winnipeg with 10 goals, Mark Scheifele has 14 assists and Andrew Copp has 41 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.6 goals per game and are killing 81.1 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 31 goals on 374 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up nine goals on 110 shots.
The Edmonton Oilers look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 24.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with nine goals, Leon Draisaitl has 18 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 59 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.3 goals per game and are killing 75.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 46 goals on 433 shots faced and Stuart Skinner has allowed five goals on 38 shots.
The Jets are 6-2 in their last 8 games playing on 1 days rest. The Oilers are 1-10 in their last 11 Wednesday games and 6-2 in their last 8 overall. The under is 4-1-1 in Jets last 6 overall. The over is 4-1 in Oilers last 5 home games. The Jets are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings in Edmonton and 9-3 in the last 12 meetings.
The Winnipeg Jets have had trouble stringing wins together this season and they've been peppered defensively in the last two meetings against the Oilers. The Edmonton Oilers have been one of the hotter teams in the league these last two weeks and their offense has produced 12 goals in the last two meetings against the Jets. The Jets have also won six of the last eight meetings against the Jets overall. I'll side with the Oilers and the cheap price.
