Oilers fall to Canucks

Edmonton fell by a score of 5-2 Saturday night at home against Vancouver to drop to 16-9-3 on the season. Connor McDavid cut the Oilers' deficit to 2-1 in the first period on a goal assisted by Ethan Bear and Sam Gagner. Zack Kassian tied it up at 2-2 with 14:55 in the second period with an assist going to McDavid. The Canucks scored twice the rest of the second period and added another goal in the third period to notch the win. Mike Smith surrendered five goals on 38 shots in the defeat.

Pearson leads Canucks to win

Vancouver earned a 5-2 victory Saturday night at Edmonton to improve to 13-10-4 on the season. Tyler Graovac gave the Canucks a 1-0 lead 3:31 in on the power play with assists from Tanner Pearson and Adam Gaudette. Pearson pushed it to 2-0 with a shorthanded goal 10 minutes later on an assist by J.T. Miller. The Oilers tied it up in the second period, but Vancouver took the lead again via a Pearson goal at the 6:13 mark of the second with assists going to Bo Horvat and Quinn Hughes. Loui Eriksson pushed it to 4-2 with 1:56 to go in the second off assists from Horvat and Pearson. Josh Leivo made it 5-2 1:21 into the third period on assists by Horvat and Jake Virtanen. Jacob Markstrom picked up the win as he allowed two goals on 30 shots.

NHL Betting Trends


The Oilers are 7-2 in their last nine games as an underdog. Edmonton is 7-3 in its last 10 games versus the Pacific Division. 


The Canucks are 24-49 in their last 73 games versus the Pacific Division. Vancouver is 4-9 in its last 13 games overall.


The Canucks are turning to backup Thatcher Demko here and I happen to trust Oilers goalie Mikko Koskinen with his .920 save percentage a little more. Edmonton should be fired up to get a little revenge from the day before and it has a high-powered offense looking to get back on track after yesterday's meager effort. I'm taking the small underdogs here.
