Chicago Blackhawks (32-30-8) at Edmonton Oilers (37-25-9)
Ricky's 8* play on the Oilers.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Oilers are 6-0 in their last six Saturday games.
- The home team is 4-1 in the last five meetings.
- The Oilers have the edge both on the power play as well as the penalty kill.
The verdict: The Oilers have the home ice (in a weird way) and should get the win.
