The Edmonton Oilers and Anaheim Ducks meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Honda Center.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 29 percent of their power play opportunities. Leon Draisaitl leads Edmonton with 36 goals, Connor McDavid has 53 assists and James Neal has 107 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 84.7 percent of their opponents power plays. Mike Smith has given up 90 goals on 950 shots faced and Mikko Koskinen has allowed 89 goals on 995 shots. The Edmonton Oilers have allowed three or less goals in 12 of their last 15 games.
The Anaheim Ducks need a win to snap a four-game losing streak. The Anaheim Ducks are averaging 2.5 goals per game and are scoring on 14.6 percent of their power play opportunities. Adam Henrique leads Anaheim with 23 goals, Ryan Getzlaf has 26 assists and Rickard Rakell has 159 shots on goal. Defensively, the Anaheim Ducks are allowing 3.1 goals per game and are killing 78.1 percent of their opponents power plays. John Gibson has given up 130 goals on 1,378 shots faced and Ryan Miller has allowed 52 goals on 557 shots. The Anaheim Ducks have allowed three or more goals in eight of their last 14 games.
The underdog is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The road team is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The Oilers are 16-35 in the last 51 meetings.
While the last 10 meetings have been split down the middle, the Anaheim Ducks have had the upper hand over the Oilers over the years. With that said, the Anaheim Ducks are a team we've faded a lot this season, and that shouldn't change with them being the fourth least profitable team in the sport this season. The Edmonton Oilers have put together a couple of nice victories as of late and they're starting to get healthy with key players returning to the mix. The Edmonton Oilers are also the second most profitable team in the sport. Give me the road team and the cheap price.
