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.

Zack Kassian tied it up at 2-2 with 14:55 in the second period with an assist going to McDavid.

Pearson pushed it to 2-0 with a shorthanded goal 10 minutes later on an assist by J.T. Miller.

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.
