Oilers Looking For Season-High Four-Game Winning Streak

The Edmonton Oilers have largely been the definition of mediocrity this season but Conor McDavid and company have been playing their best hockey of the year recently. The Oilers have won their past three games – their longest winning streak of the season – while outscoring opponents 11-7. The Oilers will look to extend it to four games when they host the Montreal Canadiens Saturday night.

Shark Bites
  • The Oilers are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against the Canadiens.
  • The total has gone OVER in 14 of the Oilers last 21 games at home.
  • Alex Galchenyuk has 2 goals and 6 assists in his last 8 games.

These two teams met just two weeks ago, a game the Oilers easily won 6-2. Edmonton poured it on, racking up 40 shots and chasing goaltender Carey Price shortly into the second period.

Price has since rebounded and has begun playing his best hockey of the season. The five-time all-star has given up just 10 goals on 131 shots in the past four. Of course, Price could surely be benefitted by his defensemen helping him out and allowing fewer shots, as the Canadiens are surrendering over 30 shots in eight of his past 10 starts.
