Although Leon Draisaitl leads the NHL in points (36) and multi-point performances (11), the Edmonton Oilers star forward saw his club lose for the 3rd time in their last 5 games. Captain Connor McDavid extended his point streak to five games (five goals, three assists) in the loss.
The Oilers aim to rebound as Draisaitl carries a 10-game point streak (nine goals, 11 assists) into Thursday’s tilt versus the visiting Colorado Avalanche.
The Avalanche have answered a five-game losing skid (0-4-1) in which they netted just seven goals by erupting for 17 during their three-game winning streak
This game is loaded with offensive firepower and I see this as the highest-scoring game of the day.
Rookie Cale Makar etched his name into the record books after becoming the eighth rookie defenseman in league history to score the game-winning goal in consecutive contests.
The goaltending for the Avalanche this game is a big question mark. Colorado’s Philipp Grubauer participated in the team’s on-ice session on Wednesday. But it was not said if he would start today.
The Avalanche did not provide an update on the condition of their backup G Pavel Francouz, who exited Tuesday’s game just 31 seconds into the contest with a lower-body injury.
There’s uncertainty in the crease, but their offense is just too good to ignore right now. I’d be surprised if the Avalanche don’t win this game.
It’s been 20 games into their season and the Edmonton Oilers sit atop of the pacific division. It’s still a surprise to this hockey fan. The team has been absolutely carried by their duo of Connor Mcdavid and Leon Draisaitl.
Mike Smith let in 6 goals in the last game and with the way they’ve been sharing the next it seems expected that Mikko Koskinen will get the start tonight.
The Edmonton Oilers are 5-4-1 in their last ten games and an impressive 6-2-1 on home ice this season. I think they have a chance of putting up some offense in this game. It depends who is in net for the Avalanche on if they win or not.
