Edmonton Oilers vs Montreal Canadiens prediction

The Montreal Canadiens should be up for this game at home against a rival, but they're in rough shape with losses in 6 of their last 8 games, and that includes a loss to the Sharks. The Edmonton Oilers remain one of the hottest teams in the league, and not a team I'm eager to step in front of right now. The Oilers haven't lost a game since December 19, and they've done a lot of their work during this streak on the road. The Oilers have also won 5 of the last 8 meetings against the Habs. Give me the Oilers and the PL for max betting value.
