Oilers Look To Remain Flawless Against West

The Edmonton Oilers are the talk of the NHL. Thanks to Connor McDavid’s lead, the Oilers have a new swagger and currently sit atop the Western Conference. Edmonton has dominated within the West so far, going 4-0-0 while outscoring conference opponents 18-8. The Oilers look to continue their offensive onslaught when they visit the Vancouver Canucks on Friday.  

Shark Bites
  • The Oilers are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games against the Canucks.
  • The Canucks are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Canucks' last 8 games as underdog.

It didn’t take McDavid long to prove he deserves to wear the ‘C’ in Edmonton, as the 19-year-old is leading the NHL with 11 points. Though McDavid has been amazing, the Oilers’ depth has been a huge reason for their top-ranked offense as Jordan Eberle, Leon Draisaitl and Milan Lucic have chipped in plenty of scoring.

Vancouver’s offense has been anemic this season, averaging just 2.0 goals per game – the lowest in the NHL. The Canucks’ top line of the Sedin twins and Loui Eriksson has combined for five goals with a collective minus-9 rating through the first seven games.
