The Edmonton Oilers could also use a win after losing four of their last five games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 2.7 goals per game and are scoring on 22.5 percent of their power plays. Taylor Hall leads Edmonton with five goals, Connor McDavid has seven assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 24 shots on goal.

The Flyers are 14-41 in their last 55 road games and 0-5 in their last 5 vs. Pacific. The Oilers are 5-1 in their last 6 games playing on 2 days rest and 1-6 in their last 7 vs. Metropolitan. The Flyers are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Edmonton and the home team is 6-1 in the last 7 meetings.
Both teams are in a bit of a funk right now, but the Oilers have had a couple of days off while the Flyers are coming off a late contest Monday night. I'll take the rested team at home for the reasonable price.
