Edmonton Oilers vs Pittsburgh Penguins prediction

Both the Oilers and Penguins are on the end of a back to back, and they get an early start here. Not ideal, and it’s a spot I’d usually lean toward the home team. However, the Penguins were dominated by the Bruins and now get another contender here. Not great. The Oilers are far and away the more trustworthy team, and they’ve won each of the last 5 meetings against the Penguins, which includes a 6-1 win a week ago. The Oilers have scored no less than 5 goals in each of the last 5 games against the Penguins. Give me the Oilers.
