Pacific Division Competition Has Been no Match For the Oilers

Now six points back in the race to get into the playoffs, things are getting real for the Kings. They’ll need to produce something close to a miracle if they want to catch any of the teams they’re chasing and they can get that started tonight with a win against an Oilers team that currently holds one of those Western Conference wild-card spots and that the Kings have dominated of late.

SHARK BITES
  • The Kings are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games against the Oilers.
  • The Oilers are 7-0 SU in their last 7 games against their division.
  • The Kings are 0-6 SU in their last 6 games on the road against teams with winning records.

Edmonton’s win against LA back in December broke the six-game losing streak the Oilers had against the Kings and with Connor McDavid and the rest of the kids in Edmonton winning their last three games by a combined score of 16-5, they’ll be coming into this matchup with more than enough heat.

Additionally, the Oilers have owned division rivals on their home ice, going 7-2-1 against the Pacific at Rogers Place this season. Combine that with the fact they’ve gone 9-2-2 as a favorite against the Pacific this year and you’ve got a winning recipe this evening.
