Oilers vs. Avalanche NHL Pick – November 27th
I divide by two NHL picks and ended up dead-even in units.
As the Habs were thrashed by the Bruins by an 8-1 count, the reduction came from the Boston Bruins and Montreal Canadiens. In trying to keep it a match they kept their end of the deal up, but I did see Carey Price giving up five goals on 11 shots. My pick of under six was dealt a huge L for a outcome.
I have done a winner soon afterwards, however, since New Jersey Devils and the Minnesota Wild indeed played in favor of the Wild with a 3-2 event that is low-scoring. Kaapo Kahkonen picked up his first career NHL win in his first career NHL start because he turned aside 32 of 34 Devils shots.
Let’s look to become hot on the 13-game NHL schedule of tonight!
Season Record: 28-23
Let’s break down these clubs before getting into my final pick each!
The Oilers are a group this season.
The Leon Draisaitl/Connor McDavid duo is the best in the business right now because they’re 1-2 in league scoring right now. However, they lack depth up front as James Neal has been largely quieted following a white-hot start to the season.
While their offense ranks 12th in the league and tied for 14th on the street, this team has stepped down on defense that few saw coming after a few seasons that were disastrous.
New head coach Dave Tippett has focused his efforts on the back end where the Oilers rank eighth with 2.77 goals against every game this season. However, that amount really improves on the path into 2.43 goals against per game which is the second-best mark at the NHL at the moment.
It make sense looking at that the Oilers standing fourth with just 30.1 shots against per game on the street, nevertheless they’ve also received quality goaltending from the Mike Smith and Mikko Koskinen away from home this season as the Oilers’ .918 street Sv% evaluations in fourth league broad.
It’ll be Koskinen heading tonight and he’s been a beast on the road this season.
Koskinen owns a .917 Svpercent for the month of November to this point, but has also won four of the last five starts from the month and has posted a .926 Sv.
Despite mostly lacking secondary Draisaitl and McDavid possess the Oilers’ offense.
They’ve scored four goals in seven of their past nine matches and have averaged 4.11 targets per game in that moment. Only once over their last nine games has Edmonton scores less than 3 aims.
Despite overlooking Gabriel Landeskog and Mikko Rantanen for some time, the Avalanche have been able to remain afloat whilst playing only 23 games to this point — tied to the forefront in the Western Conference and sit in the best Wild Card spot in the Convention.
The injury bug has hit on them lately as defenseman Erik Johnson will miss tonight contest after being chased from the Avs’ loss to the Maple Leafs on Saturday.
Nathan MacKinnon has yet put his team on his back also has his crime ranked fourth overall with 3.52 goals per match on the fourth and season with 3.80 goals per game on home ice.
Is on the defensive side of the puck where I am worried about the Avalanche tonight.
The Avs are a good overall defense in allowing 3.00 goals per game on the period which sits at a four-way tie for 15th in the league. However. Their own 3.10 goals against per game at home ranks 24th.
In addition, it is a defense that is missing Johnson who logs plenty of penalty killing ice time and skates more than 22 minutes per game.
Finding the nod in goal tonight will probably be Philipp Grubauer who had been pulled out of his start on Saturday against the Maple Leafs after allowing four goals on just 15 shots. He now owns an .897 Sv and has lost five of his final six starts.
I’m a little bit surprised to see Grubauer get the start tonight as backup Pavel Francouz stopped all 12 shots he faced — many of them dangerous — in relief of Grubauer on Saturday and owns a 2.55 GAA and .920 Sv% on the season.
The Avs have dropped two in a row.
Having said that, it’s not too much that the I’m looking at but instead what the figures tell mepersonally. The numbers are telling me that the Oilers would be the play here and readily contain the value at these chances.

I am worried about the Avs about protection, I am concerned about Grubauer in target and I am worried about their atrocious punishment kill of late.
Not one of those problems exist with the Oilers. Their road defense is second-best in the NHL,” Koskinen has been good on the street and quite good of late along with the Oilers’ teams are among the best in the NHL.
Their power play is that the second-best from the NHL with a 32.4% mark overall and tied for second with a 29.3% markers onto the road. That presents a issue for the Avs’ 28th-ranked home penalty kill.
The Avs do have an efficient home power play with their 28.6% roster attached for sixth league broad, but the Oilers can battle that using their second-ranked 86.7% penalty kill total and top-ranked 89.4% penalty kill on the street.
The Oilers input this one riding road wins, continue to have things done at the ends of the ice and on defense. They are the group that is more complete and I’m digging on their value at +113 as a result.
