The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks meet Saturday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.
The Edmonton Oilers look to build on their four game winning streak. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 26.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with 16 goals, Leon Draisaitl has 28 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 83 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing three goals per game and are killing 76.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 52 goals on 515 shots faced and Stuart Skinner has allowed five goals on 38 shots.
The Vancouver Canucks look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.8 goals per game and are scoring on 19.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 14 goals, Quinn Hughes has 22 assists and Elias Pettersson has 63 shots on goal. Defensively, the Vancouver Canucks are allowing 3.2 goals per game and are killing 80.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Braden Holtby has given up 39 goals on 366 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 54 goals on 628 shots.
The Oilers are 9-4 in their last 13 Saturday games and 6-0 in their last 6 road games. The Canucks are 6-13 in their last 19 vs. North and 6-13 in their last 19 overall. The under is 5-2 in Oilers last 7 overall. The under is 3-0-1 in Canucks last 4 overall. The Oilers are 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Vancouver and 7-3 in the last 10 meetings.
The Edmonton Oilers are on the end of a back to back, but they continue to pile up the victories and they've had nothing but success when playing on the end of back to backs. The Vancouver Canucks are coming off a strong week, but they still have defensive issues and they're hard to trust against some of the better teams in the league. The Oilers have also won three of the four meetings against the Canucks this season. I'll give the edge to the Oilers and the cheap price.
