The Vegas Golden Knights and Edmonton Oilers meet in NHL action from Rogers Place on Saturday.
The Vegas Golden Knights will look to build on their 4-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes in their last matchup. Jack Eichel leads the Golden Knights with 21 points, including 10 goals and 11 assists, while Chandler Stephenson has 18 points with 12 assists and Alex Pietrangelo has 17 points with 15 assists. Reilly Smith and Jonathan Marchessault each have 14 points, with Smith recording 9 goals and Marchessault recording 7 goals and 7 assists. Logan Thompson has gone 9-3 with a 2.27 GAA and a .925 save percentage, while Adin Hill is 5-1 with a 2.32 GAA and a .920 save percentage this year as well season
The Edmonton Oilers will be looking to find some consistency after alternating wins and losses in each of their last 5 games following a 3-1 loss to the Kings last time out. Connor McDavid leads the Oilers with 32 points, including 15 goals and 17 assists, while Leon Draisaitl has 28 points with 19 assists. Zach Hyman has 18 points with 8 goals and 10 assists, while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 17 points with 8 goals and 9 assists. Jack Campbell’s posted a 6-4 record with a 4.27 GAA and .873 save percentage, while Stuart Skinner went 3-4 with a 2.47 GAA and a .873 save percentage. .932 in goal for Edmonton this season.
Vegas is 6-0 in their last 6 road games and 10-2 in their last 12 games overall while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 road games. Edmonton is 2-5 in their last 7 games overall and 8-20 in their last 28 games against a team with a winning percentage over .600 while the under is 7-1-1 in their last 9 games on Saturday.
I understand the case being made on both sides here, but I’m sticking with Vegas here since the Golden Knights have the deepest lineup. I think the Oilers are back to being top heavy and reliant on the line when it comes to Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl and as such I’ll back the Golden Knights here at coin price.
