Sitting at 11-5-2 with 24 points, the Edmonton Oilers are in First Place in the Pacific Division. The Oilers head south to battle the Anaheim Ducks in an important division matchup. This will be the first meeting between the two teams this season.
Leon Draisaitl is one of the top offensive snipers in the entire NHL and has 14 goals and 16 assists through 18 games this season. Connor McDavid is not far behind and has 8 goals and 19 assists on the season. The Oilers rotate Mike Smith and Mikko Koskinen in Goal. Koskinen has the better numbers of the two and has a 6-1-1 record with a 2.18 GAA.
After a somewhat slow start, things are stabilizing for the Anaheim Ducks (9-7-1, 19 total points). The Ducks play host to first place Edmonton and have an outstanding opportunity to make up some ground in the Pacific Division.
Jakob Silfverberg is the leading scorer for the defensive minded Ducks and 7 goals and 6 assists on the season. Ryan Getzlaf is an additional scorer for the Ducks and has 7 goals and 4 assists on the year. John Gibson is the primary Goaltende for Anaheim and is 6-7 on the year with a 2.55 GAA.

The Oilers have been able to play decent on the year and the offense of the Oilers is due for a big game. The Ducks have a good defense, but with how much pressure the defense will be under in this game it is only a matter of time before the Ducks defense collapses. Final Score Prediction, Edmonton Oilers win 4-2.
