The Edmonton Oilers will look to build on their 7-1 win over Ottawa last time out. Connor McDavid leads the Oilers in scoring with 48 points including a team-high 32 assists and 16 goeals while Leon Draisaitl has 42 points with 14 goals and 28 assists. Tyson Barrie has 22 points with 19 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 21 points with 10 goals and 11 assists while Darnell Hurse has 19 points with 7 goals and 12 assists. KAiler Yamamoto has 14 points split between 7 goals and 7 assists while Jesse Puljujarvi has 10 points with 7 goals and 3 assists. Edmonton’s made Mikko Koskinen the #1 goalie, giving up 17 appearances this season with an 8-9 record and a 3.30 GAA while Mike Smith’s made 12 appearances with 8 wins and a pair of shutouts along with a 2.18 GAA.
Ottawa is 18-44 in their last 62 games overall and 11-41 in their last 52 road games while the over is 6-2-1 in their last 9 games overall. Edmonton is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a win and 14-5 in their last 9 games overall while the under is 5-1 in their last 6 games as a favorite. Ottawa is 0-6 in the last 6 meetings between these two teams.
The plus money with Ottawa is tempting considering that Edmonton is a streaky team and you get the feeling that an L is coming soon for Edmonton. However, that L probably won’t come against Ottawa considering that Edmonton’s won 6 straight against the Sens and the Senatros have proven to be a team that sucks all value out of plus money as this team can get beat on like a drum when you need them the most. I’ll back the Oilers on the puck line as I’m expecting another convincing win for Edmonton here.
