Bet on Oilers vs. Sharks

The Sharks are really struggling to find any offensive flow right now on the ice. It didn’t improve much at home in Game 3 either. The Oilers didn’t have a great offensive outburst either. However, Edmonton has found ways to find the net in these last two games and the Oilers were the better offensive team this season. If the Oilers can continue to play this well on defense, the Sharks don’t stand much of a chance.
