Can the Oilers pass the jets?
- Title : Can the Oilers pass the jets?
Oil versus jet engines - which is usually a very good combination to get some horsepower off the ground together, is a good combination on Thursday to get some goals in the net - at least statistically.
In the last four duels there were an average of 8.25 goals per game and thanks to names like McDavid, Draisaitl, Wheeler or Scheiffele, this series of high scoring games will most likely continue on Thursday.
Both teams are almost tied in the North Division table. Both in the points and in the statistics of power play and penalty killing. When it comes to the goals scored and goals received, only nuances separate them. There are no two other teams in the league that can show such congruent stats.
That speaks again for a 50:50 duel on Thursday, as in each of their four previous meetings in 2021. It is logical that it is also 2: 2, with the Jets able to score a single more goal (17:16). Even if we look at the current shape, both are almost on par.
If we see a team a little bit ahead, it's the jets, which is why our forecast for Edmonton vs. Winnipeg is also a narrow success for the away team. High scoring game likely.
The Canadian duel begins on Friday night at 2:00 am in Edmonton.
