The Edmonton Oilers and Montreal Canadiens meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Bell Centre.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after winning four of their last five games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 27 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with 21 goals, Leon Draisaitl has 34 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 100 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 2.9 goals per game and are killing 76 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 55 goals on 568 shots faced and Mike Smith has allowed 39 goals on 477 shots.
The Montreal Canadiens need a win here after losing five of their last eight games. The Montreal Canadiens are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 23.8 percent of their power play opportunities. Tyler Toffoli leads Montreal with 18 goals, Jonathan Douin has 19 assists and Brendan Gallagher has 96 shots on goal. Defensively, the Montreal Canadiens are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 76.4 percent of their opponents power plays. Carey Price has given up 55 goals on 567 shots faced and Jake Allen has given up 26 goals on 324 shots.
The Oilers are 12-2 in their last 14 games playing on 0 days rest and 7-3 in their last 10 overall. The Canadiens are 5-11 in their last 16 games as a favorite and 5-11 in their last 16 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Oilers last 5 overall. The over is 8-2 in Canadiens last 10 Tuesday games. The Oilers are 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Montreal and 11-5 in the last 16 meetings. The road team is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Edmonton Oilers may be on the end of a back to back, but they're playing the better hockey entering this contest and have been absolute money playing twice in as many days. The Montreal Canadiens haven't had great success as of late and they've had some extended time off lately, which isn't great for finding a rhythm. The Oilers have also dominated the Habs over the years, which includes a 3-0 victory when these teams last met back in February. I'll gladly take the Oilers and the plus money on the road here.
