Carolina Hurricanes vs Edmonton Oilers NHL Betting Lines and Goal Total Call
Edmonton Oilers: Look to build on year opening victory
Following a dismal start, Edmonton was 8-15-2 through the first two months of the season, the Oilers caught fire for a stretch as they won six straight games to open December. Those victories were impressive as they came against some of the better teams in the league – including a pair of 3-2 extra time wins over Boston and a 2-1 overtime victory against the NHL leading Dallas Stars. Getting outscored by a 27-11 margin, the winning run was cut short as the Oilers went 1-1-6 to close out 2015. Five or more goals have been scored in nine of the Oilers last thirteen games.
Carolina Hurricanes: Had a December to remember after a rough season start
Carolina struggled through a rough start to the 2015-16 NHL season as the ‘Canes sat third last in the Eastern Conference standings with a 8-12-4 record at the end of November. The Hurricanes heated up in December as they didn’t lose two games in row (in regulation time) at any time while posting a 8-5-1 record last month. The winning run has moved Carolina to within six points of the final Wild Card spot currently held by the Boston Bruins. In a bit of a scoring drought, the ‘Canes lost 2-1 (OT) at home to Nashville to open the New Year in their last match on Saturday.
Edmonton vs Carolina Call: Cam Talbot (6-11-2 GAA 2.91) starts in goal for Edmonton tonight. Talbot snapped a personal four-game losing streak, stopping 31 of 34 shots he faced, as the Oilers opened the New Year with 4-3 (SO) win at home vs the Arizona Coyotes on Saturday. Carolina’s workhorse is back in net as Cam Ward (11-11-3 2.52) gets the call for the Hurricanes. Ward’s last start was a 3-2 loss to the Devils in New Jersey on December 29. These teams have potted five or more goals in seven of the past eight meetings – including the Hurricanes 4-1 win at home back on November 25. Feeling this game gets to a 2-2 score we are backing the OVER 4.5 goals with a ten unit wager on the alternate goal total price on the Sportsinteraction NHL betting board.
