The Carolina Hurricanes travel up north, to Canada, to take on the Oilers of Edmonton. Carolina enters this matchup ranked 11th in the NHL, posting a record of 18-11-1 on the year. Edmonton enters this game ranked 6th with a record of 18-10-4 this campaign. The Hurricanes look to keep on rolling, entering this game riding a two-game winning streak. The Canes have found mediocre success on the road this year, going 8-6-1 in 15 road games this season. On the other hand, the Edmonton Oilers have not been all that impressive at home, compiling a record of 8-4-3 when at home this season.

Carolina Hurricanes Review

The Carolina Hurricanes enter this game with a strong defense, ranking 9th in the NHL with just 2.80 goals allowed per game. Petr Mrazek has not been all that special and will need to wake up if Carolina wants to beat Edmonton tonight. Mrazek is lucky to have an amazing defense that has been able to take away the shooting lanes and block big shots.

Carolina's offense ranks 16th in the NHL this season with 2.67 goals scored per game at home. Dougie Hamilton has been a bright spot for the Hurricanes thus far, being at the top of the charts when it comes to scoring defensemen. Carolina will look to Hamilton to stretch the ice with long passes and crisp shots from the point.

Edmonton Oilers Review

The Edmonton Oilers will need to wake up on defense, ranking 28th in the NHL in goals allowed per game when at home. Mike Smith is expected to start tonight, as he and Mikko Koskinen have been splitting time evenly. Both goalies are off to average starts this season, with Smith posting a save percentage of 90 on the year. While he has been solid, the Oilers' skaters need to start helping out and stopping the large amount of odd-man rushes allowed on the year.

The Oilers will look to their offense to win this one, ranking 14th in the NHL in goals scored per game when at home. Connor McDavid is a household name by now and is 2nd on the Oilers in points scored this season. McDavid is going to need to be a leader tonight if Edmonton wants to come away with two points tonight.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Go with the Edmonton Oilers in tonight's game. The Oilers may struggle to stop people from scoring, but their offense is electric. The Hurricanes are average on offense this season so the Oilers may have a confidence booster in this one. Mike Smith has a chance to prove himself and start earning more playing time here tonight. The Oilers have been lighting up other teams on offense thanks to Connor McDavid and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Both of these skaters have some of the best speed in the NHL and will look to fly down the ice and pressure Carolina in this game. The Canes will not be able to take away the shooting lanes because of the speed Edmonton brings to the table and will struggle to win this game tonight.

Prediction: Edmonton Oilers

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

This game is going to go over, as the Oilers and the Hurricanes have some weak defense. Both of these teams are searching for skaters that are going to stop turning the puck over in the neutral zone and allowing many odd-man rushes against their goal guards. On the other hand, these teams have some goals scorers. Connor McDavid is going to be electric tonight and put a few past Carolina in this one. The Canes have Dougie Hamilton who is one of the top scoring defensemen tonight. Buy into the hype, take this over.

Prediction: Over 6
