The Edmonton Oilers and Vancouver Canucks meet Tuesday in NHL action at the Rogers Arena.
The Edmonton Oilers look for a win after winning six of their last eight games. The Edmonton Oilers are averaging 3.2 goals per game and are scoring on 26.3 percent of their power play opportunities. Connor McDavid leads Edmonton with 29 goals, Leon Draisaitl has 47 assists and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 120 shots on goal. Defensively, the Edmonton Oilers are allowing 2.7 goals per game and are killing 79.5 percent of their opponents power plays. Mikko Koskinen has allowed 62 goals on 660 shots faced and Mike Smith has allowed 62 goals on 815 shots.
The Vancouver Canucks need a win here to snap a five-game losing streak. The Vancouver Canucks are averaging 2.6 goals per game and are scoring on 19.7 percent of their power play opportunities. Brock Boeser leads Vancouver with 17 goals, Quinn Hughes has 32 assists and Bo Horvat has 101 shots on goal.

Braden Holtby has given up 56 goals on 564 shots faced while Thatcher Demko has given up 80 goals on 921 shots.
The Oilers are 13-4 in their last 17 games playing on 0 days rest and 5-2 in their last 7 overall. The Canucks are 16-35 in their last 51 games playing on 0 days rest and 0-4 in their last 4 overall. The under is 13-3-1 in Oilers last 17 overall. The under is 12-4-3 in Canucks last 19 overall. The under is 7-1-3 in the last 11 meetings in Vancouver.
The Edmonton Oilers continue to pile up the wins, dominate in the favorite role and they've had no issue winning on the end of back to backs. The Vancouver Canucks are riding a five-game losing streak and have been abused on the defensive side during this stretch. The Oilers have also now won four of the six meetings this season against the Canucks, with three of those wins coming by two or more goals. I have no choice but to lay the PL with the Oilers on the road.
