In his 47 games played, he has turned in 30 quality starts, giving him a quality start percentage above the league average.

Through 80 games, Edmonton's leading goal scorer is Leon Draisaitl. With his 55 goals and 54 assists, he is the second in overall points, coming in at 109. On the season, he is turning 20.0% of his shots into goals. In addition, the Oilers have benefited from the strong play of Connor McDavid, who is the team's overall leader in points. In Edmonton's 80 games, he has come up with 44 goals on a shooting percentage of 14.1%. While on the ice, his offensive production has led to a plus-minus rating of +27. Edmonton's top goalie is Mikko Koskinen, who is giving up an average of 3.12 goals per game. In his 43 games played, he has come up with a quality start just 42 percent of the time.

Coming into this game, the Sharks have an over-under record of 33-46-1. When playing on the road, the over is hitting less than half the time, going 17-22. On the season, 45.0% of San Jose's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 44.0% of the scoring coming from the Sharks.

On the season 65.0% of Edmonton's games have gone for at least 6 goals or more, with 54.0% of the scoring coming from the Oilers. I see the over-under line at 7,5 goals, being way too high for a game involving the 31st ranked scoring unit in San Jose. I recommend taking the under.
