Skinner Starting in Vegas on Tuesday
Stuart Skinner will patrol the road crease during Tuesday’s matchup with the Golden Knights, Jason Gregor of Sports 1440 Edmonton reports. Skinner has been unstoppable since late December, racking up 12 straight wins while posting an exceptional 1.41 GAA and .950 save percentage. He’ll try to secure his 24th victory of the season in a tough road matchup with a Vegas team that’s 18-5-2 at home this year.
Marchessault Nets Hat Trick in Recent Victory
Jonathan Marchessault scored three goals, including the game-winner, in Friday’s 5-2 victory over the Rangers. The veteran winger potted Vegas’ final three tallies, and he was only denied a natural hat trick by a late Kaapo Kakko goal for New York. Marchessault is on an impressive heater, finding the back of the net eight times over the course of a six-game point streak. He’s already reached 25 goals on the season for the sixth time in his career.

Oilers vs. Golden Knights Betting Prediction
Take Edmonton. The Oilers have won 16 straight games and are 24-3 in their last 27 contests overall. They’re also a perfect 9-0 in their last nine road games, are 5-2 in their last seven games playing Vegas on the road and have won 15 straight games against an opponent from the Western Conference. Bet against Edmonton all you want but I’d rather just ride with the Oilers.
