Atlanta Thrashers vs. Edmonton Oilers, 3:30PM ET (View Matchup)

Atlanta is 7-0 in their last 7 road games as an even or favorite. Edmonton is just 1-7 in their last 8 games following a win. My pick goes with Atlanta in this one as Edmonton might be the worst team in the league and the Thrashers are still contending for a playoff spot.
