Edmonton Oilers Odds

Edmonton improved this month’s record to 10-2-1 when shading San Jose 5-4 in overtime at this venue last night.

The Oilers weren’t at their best, but Zach Hyman struck the decider 1:37 into the extra section to make it six wins in seven outings.

Having trailed 2-0 with just over three minutes played, Jay Woodcroft was relieved to come out on top.

“We found a way to win,” he said. “We obviously didn’t start the way we wanted to start, but credit to our players.

“On a night where everything wasn’t firing on all cylinders, they found a way to win.”

Leon Draisaitl has tied his career high in points with 110, so the German will be eyeing a landmark score here.

Let’s take NHL odds for this game.

Vancouver Canucks Odds

Vancouver are coming off a couple of home victories themselves, beating Seattle 5-2 on Tuesday before a 3-2 overtime win over Los Angeles last night.

The Canucks trailed the Kings 2-0 after two periods but battled back to give coach Bruce Boudreau his 599th regular-season success.

Brock Boeser bagged a brace, including the decider, and declared: “It still meant a lot to us and just to show what our team is capable of.

“I talk about it a lot, but it’s pretty amazing where we are right now compared to where we were at the beginning of the year.

“I think we all talk about that a lot and take a lot of pride in that.”

Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes have been in fine form, but JT Miller may be the Vancouver player to watch out for here.

The 29-year-old is on 98 points for the season and would no doubt love to make it a century.

Miller can be backed at 2.55 to achieve that feat by posting over 1.5 points and that is added to our NHL predictions.
