Score: 6 - 3
Money Line: -167 Edmonton
8* Edmonton (9:05 ET): The Oilers have only managed to split a quartet of games since the All-Star Break, but remain in second place in the Pacific with 62 points. They are only three points back of first place Vancouver, but only two ahead of fifth place Calgary, who they recently defeated 8-3 on the road. The last game didn’t go nearly as well though as the Oilers were blanked 3-0 at Arizona. They’ll look to rebound tonight vs. a San Jose team that has the worst overall goal differential (-39) in the Western Conference.
Like the Oilers, the Sharks have managed to split four games since the All-Star Break. They too just won at Calgary, 3-1 on Tuesday, but an Alberta sweep seems unlikely based on the fact this club hasn’t won B2B road games since Jan 2-4. Since a decent 15-12-1 start to the season, the Sharks are just 8-15-3 SU. There have been only two occasions total where they’ve won B2B games during that time.
Early in the season, these division rivals split a pair of games in San Jose. The road has generally been unkind to San Jose where they are 9-14-3. It’s not just a bad record either. They’re getting outscored by 1.2 goals per game on the road. That’s the fourth worst differential in the league right now, ahead of only Ottawa, New Jersey and Detroit. Edmonton is 8-2-2 its last 12 games and has gone 11-4 this year when off a loss by 2+ goals. 8* Edmonton
