The Winnipeg Jets and Edmonton Oilers meet Thursday in NHL action at the Rogers Place.
The Winnipeg Jets look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Winnipeg Jets are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 25 percent of their power play opportunities. Nikolaj Ehlers leads Winnipeg with 14 goals, Mark Scheifele has 25 assists and Kyle Connor has 85 shots on goal. Defensively, the Winnipeg Jets are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 77.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Connor Hellebuyck has given up 61 goals on 680 shots faced and Laurent Brossoit has given up 16 goals on 203 shots.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.3 goals per game and are scoring on 26.5 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with 17 goals, Leon Draisaitl has 29 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 89 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 75.6 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 54 goals on 543 shots faced and Stuart Skinner has allowed five goals on 38 shots.
The Jets are 5-2 in their last 7 road games and 6-1 in their last 7 Thursday games. The Oilers are 4-0 in their last 4 home games and 15-7 in their last 22 overall. The over is 7-0 in Jets last 7 overall. The under is 6-2 in Oilers last 8 games as a favorite. The Jets are 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Edmonton and 9-4 in the last 13 meetings. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
You can make a case for either of these teams that are playing well at the moment and the first four meetings this season have been split down the middle. However, the Edmonton Oilers have shown more consistency up to this point and have thrived playing on the end of back to backs. At home, I'll give the edge to the Oilers and the cheap price.
