The New Jersey Devils have struggled on the offensive end in recent outings and will certainly be looking to a huge victory over the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday night. They enter this matchup losers of six straight games with a loss to the Rangers of New York in their last outing.
The Edmonton Oilers have been just the opposite as they have won five of their last six games, overall. They were able to come back strong after a temporary setback to the Toronto Maple Leafs in their last time out.
New Jersey Devils
The Devils offense is averaging just 2.8 goals per game this season. During their current losing skid, they have regressed significantly in lowering their average to just 1.1 goals in their last six.
The offense tacked on just two goals in a loss versus the Rangers as Damon Severson along with Blake Coleman sparked New Jersey in the first period as they posted two early goals for the Devils.
However, the Rangers had a total of 41 shots on goals on this night as they were able to reel of four straight goals led by Ryan Strome, who posted two goals in the contest. Goalkeeper Corey Schneider had 37 saves on the night yet picked up his 10th defeat in net on the year.
Edmonton is currently the fifth place team within the Pacific standings. As stated, they have been on a roll lately as their offense has posted at least three goals in five of their last six, total.
They posted three goals at home versus the New York Rangers as Conner McDavid scored on a power play goal early in which to get the scoring started for the Oilers. Matt Benning along with Lion Draisaiti (42) scored goals for the Oilers in this matchup as they picked up their fourth home win in five outings.
Edmonton was destroyed by the Devils in their last matchup as their defense allowed 5 goals for the contest. On the other hand, the Oilers put up just two goals as the team was outscored 4-1 in the second and third periods en route to the loss.
It will be important to note that New Jersey has dropped four straight road games entering this matchup. As stated, Edmonton has been stellar at home recently in scoring just under three goals while allowing just an average of 2.2 goals per game during this time.
