Coming off a 4-2 win over San Jose, the Edmonton Oilers head to Vancouver to take on the Canucks on Friday night.
Vancouver has lost six straight games and finishes the season with back-to-back outings against the Oilers.
The Oilers are heading to the playoffs after an impressive season led by captain and second-year forward Connor McDavid.
Edmonton has had a great season, sitting 2nd in the Pacific Division. The team’s solid record has been due to a mix of great offense and great defense. The Oilers sit 9th in the league in goals scored and 8th in goals against.
McDavid has been wonderful this year, and is just three points shy of 100. He has 30 goals and 67 assists, including four goals and five assists over his last five games.
Leon Draisaitl has been great too. He has 28 goals and 47 assists, including a goal and four assists in his last five games.
Injuries and age have reared their ugly heads this season for Vancouver and nothing has changed as we wrap up the last two games of the season. Markus Granlund, one of the team’s leading scorers, is on the injured reserve with a wrist injury and has been shut down.
Granlund was one of the top performers for this team. He has 19 goals and 13 assists in 69 games this season.
More injuries to Loui Eriksson, Bredan Gaunce, Jack Skille, and Joseph Cramarossa all but ensure a tough road for these last couple of games and the Oilers will likely have a field day with Vancouver.
NHL Betting Trends:
- Edmonton is 6-1 SU in the last seven games
- The UNDER is 4-1-1 in Vancouver’s last six games
