Edmonton vs Pittsburgh: prediction for the NHL fixture
Edmonton are one of the leaders in the Western Conference with 30 points in the asset. The team hasn't lost two matches in a row this season. Not so long ago, the Oilers suffered a defeat to Dallas (1:4), but they immediately recovered and recorded victories over Arizona (5:3) and Vegas (3:2).
The Oilers are more successful at home, and they lost only one game in Edmonton. On average, the Oilers net four goals per game, and Draisaitl is the top scorer in the NHL - he has earned 40 points (20 goals and 20 assists).
Pittsburgh are in 7th place, which means that after a bad start to the season, the Penguins have finally reached the playoffs zone. Recently, they were on a brilliant streak of five victories. In each of those games, they conceded no more that once.
However, after that, the Pens unexpectedly lost to Montreal (3:6) at home, and also yielded to Calgary in a shootout (1:2 SO). This year, Mike Sullivan's men have lost away only twice in regulation time. At the same time, Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby is having a poor season; he has only scored two goals so far.
In 5 out of 6 games, Pittsburgh conceded fewer than 4 goals.
In the last 4 games of Pittsburgh, no more than one goal was scored in the first period.
Pittsburgh haven't lost to Edmonton in regulation since 2013. The Pens recently had a five-game winning streak, while the Oilers haven't won more than two games in a row for a month now. We suggest playing the visitors' victory.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (0) to Pittsburgh
