Maple Leafs vs. Oilers Prediction

I’m siding with Edmonton here. They’re just playing the better hockey by a fair margin and while I normally look at Toronto getting plus money as it doesn’t happen often, they’re getting that plus money for a reason in this spot. I can’t trust the Maple Leafs across the board right now and I think Edmonton picks up another win here.
