Vancouver Canucks vs Edmonton Oilers
Sunday, December 1 – 22:00 EST – Rogers Arena
The Vancouver Canucks return home following an impressive win last night in Edmonton. Despite that, Vancouver has encountered some problems at home recently. The Canucks have only won once at the Rogers Arena in the month of November. The good news for the home team is that they score a lot when playing at home. The Canucks score an average of 4.1 goals per game in front of their fans and rank 1st in the league. Elias Pettersson is having an outstanding season so far with 31 points to his name in only his second NHL season. Vancouver will start Thatcher Demko in goal tonight. The goaltender is 5-4-1 this season with a goals against average of 2.91.
On the other hand, the Edmonton Oilers still sit atop the Pacific Division standings. However, they are winless in two games and it is now time for them to bounce back. The Oilers have been playing well on the road this season as they hold a 9-6-1 record. They are scoring an average of 2.81 goals away from home which ranks them 15th in the league. Despite this, the Oilers have the two biggest offensive threats in the league. McDavid and Draisaitl have accumulated a total of 97 points so far ahead of tonight’s match. Look for them to continue adding to their tally in this one. Edmonton will start Mikko Koskinen in goal. The goaltender is 9-2-2 this season with a goals against average of 2.55. Look for him to continue his splendid season with another dominant performance.
Overall, we believe that the Oilers will have what it takes to bounce back from last night’s loss and earn a win in Vancouver. Despite them not having the best attack on the road, they defend well and rank 4th in the league for least goals allowed. Pair that up with their dynamic duo and the Oilers should earn full points.
