Edmonton progresses little during the regular season, but the Oilers have to fight in the cup battles to fulfill the minimum task. A completely different hockey will begin in the playoffs, for which the Oilers are ready. They have already become stronger, confirmed by seven victories in the last nine meetings. Jay Woodcroft's wards lost only to Winnipeg and Toronto, and even then, in a hard struggle – 5:7 and 4:7. In the Western Conference standings, Edmonton is still in sixth place.
San Jose Sharks
San Jose continues to be depressed. In the first half of the regular season, the Sharks periodically scored points, demonstrating hockey of a reasonable level, but now we can't look at their results and weep. In the last 12 meetings, the Californians have suffered 11 defeats, beating only Winnipeg, and even then in overtime – 3:2. Such a weak stretch sent San Jose to the last place in the Western Conference standings.
Expert Betting Tips
Edmonton and San Jose are rivals of entirely different levels. The Oilers are in a good mood, and they have won the last four home games in a row and each time with a difference of at least three goals. In contrast, the Sharks' crisis worsens with each new game, and they have lost 11 times in the last 12 battles.
Edmonton has been beating everyone at home lately and scoring a lot. In the previous four meetings at Rogers Place, Jay Woodcroft's wards scored 21 goals (5.25 on average per game) – a great result. In the upcoming game with San Jose, the Oilers will have an excellent opportunity to improve these statistics since the Californians are in awful shape, allowing the star forwards of the blue-orange to enhance their performance.
