Edmonton Oilers: Still squarely in the Connor McDavid race
Eliminated from the playoffs, Edmonton continues to reach for new lows. Though they certainly don’t deserve it, the Oilers management is hoping to land their fourth first overall draft selection in six years. Edmonton and Arizona (50 PTS each) and Buffalo (47 PTS) all have 12 games remaining with the Sabres owing a three point “lead” in the Battle for the Basement. The Oilers are fresh off 4-1 raking of the Maple Leafs on Monday but they are just 3-7-3 over their past 13 contests.
Columbus Blue Jackets: NHL 2014-15 injury ravaged season has been a long one
Stumbling out of the gate saddled with a load of injuries, Columbus hasn’t been able to recover from their 4-10-1 season start. In addition to being relatively undermanned with skill players overall, the Blue Jackets 444 Man Games Lost heading into tonight’s contest is by far the highest in the league. Colorado has 391 and then there’s a cliff dive to Anaheim who have 329. Columbus has been decent in March with a 4-4-0 record and they have also been in a lot of high scoring games
Oilers vs Blue Jackets Prediction: Prior to the Toronto game, Edmonton lost seven straight and were outscored 33-22 good for a 7.9 goals per game average. There have been an average of six goals per game during the Jackets last 12 matches. Not expecting much defense, we are backing the OVER with a 300 unit wager on the Game Total price posted on the Bodog betting board.
