Edmonton is 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss by 3 or more goals and 7-1 in their last 8 Tuesday games while the under is 3-1-1 in their last 5 games against the Eastern Conference.
I’m backing the over here. Ottawa’s struggling mightily right now and the goaltending situation is not getting any better anytime soon.
