Goals Galore When Jets, Oilers Play

Two teams that have been struggling defensively meet when the Edmonton Oilers host the Winnipeg Jets Saturday. The Jets have surrendered 3.5 goals per game in their past six while the Oilers have given up three goals per game in that same span. These defensive deficiencies have lead to the OVER going 5-1 in the Jets and Oilers past six outings respectively.

Shark Bites
  • The Jets are 6-14 in their last 20 games on the road.
  • The Oilers have just one win in their past five games against the Jets.
  • The UNDER is 4-1 in the past five meetings between the Jets and Oilers.

The Jets activated goaltender Ondrej Pavelec from injured reserved Friday and assigned rookie Connor Hellebuyck to the AHL. Pavelec has not played since November 21 and coach Paul Maurice expects the Czech goalie to get the start in one of the next couple games.

There is no way to talk about the Oilers without talking about Connor McDavid. The 19-year old has been amazing since coming off the IR as he has 12 points in six games since returning for Edmonton. McDavid is coming off the best game of his young career in which he scored two goals and added three assists against the Toronto Maple Leafs.
