Oilers Have Been Leaving Pittsburgh Empty-Handed

The Edmonton Oilers and Pittsburgh Penguins meet tonight in just another awesome NHL matchup that probably won’t be nationally televised. Both teams sit near the top of their respective divisions and both teams are equally as exciting to watch.

  • Edmonton is 6-1 on the puckline as the underdog.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of the Penguins' last 6 games after a win.
  • The Oilers are 1-4 in their last 5 games on the road against the Penguins.

Connor McDavid and the Oilers had been on a little slide after their blistering start but they’ve now won two straight road games and cashed +136 moneyline odds for their backers in their game against the Red Wings on Sunday. Tonight they will look for their third straight win as moneyline underdogs.

If it wasn’t clear how important Sidney Crosby was to Pittsburgh before this season, then it certainly is now. The Penguins have won all but one of the six games they’ve played since Crosby returned from a concussion and they are scoring an average of four goals a game. Before Crosby returned? The Penguins were 3-2-1 and were averaging just 2.2 goals per game.

The Oilers may have to score a ton to keep up with the Penguins tonight and they may be up to the task as they’ve scored at least two goals in each of their last four games.
