Oilers vs Canucks | OddsShark Matchup Report
The Canucks were thoroughly outplayed in their 5-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Wednesday night. Montreal outshot Vancouver 45 to 24 and had five different goal scorers in the victory. Brock Boeser scored the Canucks’ only goal of the game for his team-leading 14th on the season. The loss snapped Vancouver’s three-game winning streak and extended Montreal’s lead over the Canucks for fourth place in the North Division to five points. The latest update from Travis Green indicates that Elias Pettersson is still at least a week away from returning.
In their last five home games against the Oilers, the Canucks are just 1-4 per the OddsShark NHL Database.
Connor McDavid needed only 10 seconds to put the Oilers up 1-0 on Friday night against the Ottawa Senators. Edmonton never looked back as the Oilers cruised to a 6-2 win to improve to 18-11 on the season. The Oilers have now won four straight games since being beaten by the Toronto Maple Leafs three times in a row a couple of weeks ago. Edmonton is 9-0 in its last nine games against teams that aren’t the Maple Leafs including a 2-0 record against the Canucks over that stretch.
Saturday night’s total is set at 6.5 goals at online betting sites. The UNDER is 4-1 in Vancouver’s last five home games.
It will be interesting to see how much of a factor fatigue is in this game for the Oilers. Edmonton is playing its third game in four nights and its second game of a back-to-back with a travel day in between. The Canucks haven’t played since Wednesday. The Oilers started Mike Smith on Friday night and could go with Mikko Koskinen against Vancouver. Koskinen is 8-9-0 with a 3.30 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage this season.
