Hurricanes Looking for Revenge Against Oilers
BetUS Sportsbook has a full slate of NHL games to look at on Thursday, including a matchup between the Carolina Hurricanes and the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers picked up a 6-4 win over the Hurricanes this season, and Carolina is looking for revenge in this game.
Edmonton comes into this game with an 8-6 record on the year, and they just picked up a big win over the Tampa Bay Lightning. However, the Oilers have played much better at home, and this will be a tough environment on the road.
Carolina comes into this game 8-4-1 to begin the year. The Hurricanes are looking to get back on track in this one, as they have suffered two straight defeats to begin the week.
The Carolina Hurricanes are the betting favorites when looking at the NHL odds, with the Moneyline set at -145.
Oilers All About Offense
After facing the Oilers earlier this week, Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper said this about Connor McDavid, “Think about McDavid, we’re in the best league in the world, with the fastest players in the world, and he sticks out like a sore thumb.” McDavid is just one part of a dynamic duo that has turned the Oilers into one of the best offensive teams in the NHL.
The star forward had a dazzling goal in the most recent win and now has 14 goals and 29 points on the year. Leon Draisaitl is trying to keep pace with his teammate, as he has 17 assists to begin the year.
Edmonton is allowing 3.5 goals per game this season, killing off 70.5 percent of their penalties. The Oilers will try to win this game on offense, but they also have to defend.
Carolina Slowing Things Down
The overall statistics for Carolina this season are strange to look at, but the team has continued to rattle off wins. Carolina comes into this game having scored just 2.85 goals per game but holding opponents to that exact same total.
Martin Necas is leading the Hurricanes with ten assists and 17 points on the year, while Carolina has scored on the power play 18 percent of the time. However, Carolina must find a way to score goals in this one, or they won’t be able to keep up.
Goaltender Frederik Andersen is out with an injury, and that will be a big hole to fill for this team. Carolina gave up six goals to the Oilers in the first meeting.
