The Oilers look to keep rolling this Saturday, as they face-off against their in-province rivals the Calgary Flames at the Saddledome in what should be an intriguing and open matchup.
Edmonton is looking a bit better as of late winning their last 3 games, but it is important to remember that two of those games came against the Ottawa Senators who look like they are a historically bad team here in 2021.
Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl have not slowed down this year, as these two guys are accounting for an absurd amount of this team’s offense, as they have combined for 46 total points in the first 12 games.
If the Oilers are to do anything this year, or this Saturday, it is almost assuredly to come down to the play of their 1st line which is good and bad at the same time, as it is great to have elite guys on your team, but that obviously means that this team is not all that deep in other areas.
Calgary, on the other hand, have been struggling, as they come into this game with a 4-5-1 record and they also have lost their last two games both of whom were against the Winnipeg Jets. Johnny Gaudreau has been the guy leading this team with 6 goals and 5 assists, and he should be in a good spot here against the Oilers to put up even more numbers, as the Oilers defense has not been all that great.
Jakob Markstrom is already confirmed to be starting this game which is great news for Flames fans, as he gives them an edge over the Oilers in this department, as he has been playing at an extremely high level with a 2.37 GAA and a .920 save percentage.

Free Edmonton Oilers vs. Calgary Flames NHL Prediction:
Watching the Oilers it seems like every game they play is wide-open and when their games go under the total it is typically down to missed chances or excellent goal tending and not about a lack of chances created on either end. I am going to keep riding with the over in Oilers games until some of these strong trends slow down a bit, as I do not believe these lines are being set high enough yet.
