Edmonton vs Chicago: prediction for the NHL game
Edmonton are trying to gain a foothold on top of the Western Conference standings. At the moment, the team has 24 points in the asset. The Oilers played several tight matches recently. First, they lost to Buffalo (2:3), and then beat St. Louis (5:4). After that, the Oilers played two games against Winnipeg. Edmonton lost at Winnipeg with a score of 2:5, and at home they won in the shootout (2:1 SO).
Dave Tippett's charges suffered only one defeat in regulation at their home court, where on average they scored more than four goals per game.
Chicago had a terrible start to the season, but they slowly improved their positions. At home, the Blackhawks outplayed Nashville (2:1 OT), Pittsburgh (3:2 SO), and Arizona (2:1), and then also defeated Seattle (4:2) away. Despite the fact that Patrick Kane missed four games, he is still the top scorer for the Hawks. Kane has already earned 17 points.
In order to get into the playoff zone, Chicago have to narrow the gap between them and the Predators by seven points.
Edmonton average over 3 goals per game at home.
In the last 4 head-to-head games, more than one goal was scored in the first period.
The Oilers are brilliant in attack and are the leaders of the West at the moment. Chicago managed to come round and developed a 4-game winning streak, but none of their opponents were of the same level as Edmonton. We don't think that the Blackhawks will be able to get a win at Edmonton.
Our prediction - Asian handicap (-1) to Edmonton

Edmonton score a lot at home, while Chicago have one of the weakest lines of defense in the league. We predict that the Oilers will net at least four goals in the upcoming fixture.
Second wager - Edmonton IT over 3.5 goals
