The Edmonton Oilers and Ottawa Senators meet Saturday afternoon at the Canadian Tire Centre.
The Edmonton Oilers have split their last 10 games and play their fifth straight road game. The Oilers are averaging 2.2 goals per game and have scored eight goals in their last three games. The Edmonton Oilers have scored three power play goals in their last three games and have won seven straight games when scoring at least three goals overall. Jordan Eberle leads the Oilers with 15 goals, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 20 assists and Matt Hendricks has 77 shots on goal. Defensively, the Oilers are allowing 3.2 goals per game and haven’t allowed a power play goal in three straight games. Ben Scrivens has allowed 106 goals on 1,006 shots faced and Viktor Fasth has given up 69 goals on 620 shots.
The Ottawa Senators are dropping in the standings with losses in five of their last seven games. The Senators are averaging 2.7 goals per game and have scored seven goals in their last three games. The Ottawa Senators have scored two power play goals in their last six games and have won three of their last five games when scoring at least three goals overall. Mike Hoffman leads Ottawa with 18 goals, Bobby Ryan has 25 assists and Erik Karlsson has 198 shots on goal. Defensively, the Senators are allowing 2.7 goals per game and haven’t allowed a power play goal in five of their last six games. Craig Anderson has allowed 73 goals on 999 shots faced and Robin Lehner has given up 68 goals on 721 shots.
The Oilers are 14-39 in their last 53 road games and 28-58 in their last 86 games following a win. The Senators are 1-4 in their last 5 home games and 4-0 in their last 4 after allowing 5 goals or more in their previous game. The Oilers are 4-9 in the last 13 meetings and the road team is 7-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Neither of these teams have been hot lately, especially the Senators who have been a flat out mess recently. When you add that to the fact the road team has controlled this series in seven of the last eight meetings, I like the Oilers to get the win on the road.
