The Pittsburgh Penguins will be looking to go for two straight wins as they will face a struggling Edmonton Oilers squad on Wednesday night. After losing four straight matchups, they have certainly gained some momentum on both ends of the ice as their offense posted four goals on the Philadelphia Flyers while allowing just one in the victory.
The Edmonton Oilers are reeling at this point as they have dropped seven of their last eight games. Also, after a three goal loss to the San Jose Sharks, Edmonton will certainly be desperately looking for a victory on the road, where they are losers of two of their last three games.
The Pittsburgh Penguins were able to halt a four game losing streak as they picked up a win versus the Philadephia Flyers in their last outing. Leading point scorer in Sidney Crosby got the scoring started for the Penguins as he recorded the only score in the first period in addition to assisting on two other goals on the night.
Kris Letang (151 shots on goal) also scored in the contest as the Penguins were out-shot almost 2 to 1 on goal for the night while connecting four goals on 26 shots. On the other hand, goalkeeper Matt Murray had 50 saves for an outstanding .980 save percentage in the win.
The Penguins picked up a high-scoring, yet slim victory over the Edmonton Oilers in October of 2018. They may indeed control this matchup as well if the Oilers are not able to play better on both ends of the ice.
Aside from the second period to where they obtained 12 shots on goal, the Oilers were limited on the offenseive end versus the San Jose Sharks in their last time out. Again, they only had five shots on goal in the first and third periods of the contest.
And while they received goals from Ryan-Nugent-Hopkins along with Zack Cassien, this would not be enough as the Sharks had 31 shots on goal with Kevin Leblanc having three goals in the win for San Jose.
Aaron Dell pulled out the victory in goal for the Sharks while Cam Talbot took the loss with 26 saves. Leading scorer and assists leader for the Oilers in Conner McDavid has gone scoreless in the last three outings for Edmonton while racking up four assists during this time.
And while Horvat scored his second goal in two straight games, leading goal scorer for the team in Elias Petterson failed to score a goal in his second straight contests. Despite this, he has assisted in three goals in the last two matchups for the Oilers.
