The Edmonton Oilers last loss came against the Hurricanes in Carolina on the 22nd. The Canes won that game 6-3. Since then, the Oilers have played their best hockey. They were playing well in all aspects of the game. One question for the Oilers is the fact they haven’t played a game since last Thursday.
Having a long break could go either way. They can either take advantage of this time off to tighten up their gameplay and rest their bumps and bruises. It could also have taken the wind out of their sails as they were playing excellently before this.
One key player to watch for the Oilers is Connor McDavid, who has been on fire lately with two goals and eleven assists in the past four games. If he can continue his hot streak and lead the team, the Oilers have a good chance of coming out on top.
However, the Hurricanes are not to be underestimated. They have a talented team with a strong defense, and they will be looking to shut down the Oilers’ offense. To win, the Oilers will need to find ways to break through the Hurricanes’ defense and create scoring opportunities.
Overall, this game is shaping up to be a thrilling matchup between two competitive teams. The Oilers will need to play one of their best games of the season if they hope to extend their winning streak to five. If they can stay focused, disciplined, and aggressive, they have a good chance of coming out on top.
