The Oilers do have a perfect record against the Ottawa Senators this year, and although that is impressive, the Sens have not always made things easy on the Oilers so we cannot rule out a victory for the road team here.
I really do believe this Senators team can be respectable next year with the core they have in place and I fully expect this team to once again compete hard in order to knock off their Canadian rivals the Edmonton Oilers who can be a little Jekyll and Hyde at times.
The Senators often times are able to put themselves in a position to win shootout type games, as they are able to score at a decent clip averaging 2.64 goals per game with a 14.4% power-play success rate.
As you probably guessed, the biggest problem for the Senators is keeping the puck out of their own net, as their blue-line has just not been good enough and the goal-tending has been some of the worst in the entire league.
The problem really starts with Matt Murray, who is having an awful season with an .885% save percentage and a brutal GAA of 3.66 and those numbers might get a whole lot worse this Wednesday as he is slated to get the start against a solid Oilers offense.
The Oilers did seem a bit out-classed in their 3 games against the Maple Leafs losing all three of those games, but they have since bounced back with 2 back to back 3-2 wins and they will now look to make it 3 wins on the trot against the Ottawa Senators.
This offense is high powered, but it is highly concentrated in terms of where that offense is coming from with the team’s two super stars Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid putting up an amazing combined 82 points in just the first 27 games of the season.
This team also gets a lot of help offensively from their blue-line as Tyson Barrie and Darnell Nurse have combined for 9 goals and 27 assists and they have as good an opportunity as any to improve upon those already impressive stats, as the Senators represent as good a matchup as you can get.

Free Ottawa Senators vs. Edmonton Oilers NHL Prediction:
The Edmonton Oilers are heavy favorites for this contest, and they should be, but I do not see much value in the current line and much prefer to side with the over 6.5 goals, as neither goalie in this matchup is all that great and both of these teams know how to put the puck in the net. I do not think the line for a game like this should be at 6.5, as I think we are getting at least a little bit of line value, as I would have had this line at 7.
