A disappointing fixture away in Vancouver brings the Edmonton Oilers (5th in Pacific) back home, where they will square off against the Winnipeg Jets (7th in Central), who also lost their previous outing…

Jets Collapse In Calgary

A promising night turned into a nightmare for the Winnipeg Jets (0-2-0), who lost their second consecutive contest of the season, allowing at least six goals once again. Just three days after opening their 2017-18 campaign with an embarrassing 7-2 home defeat at the hands of the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Jets blew 1-0 and 3-1 first-period leads to eventually record a painful 6-3 defeat against the Calgary Flames at Scotiabank Saddledome on Saturday. Brandon Tanev opened the scoring while shorthanded for Winnipeg with his first strike of the current season 8:35 minutes into the opening period. Mark Scheifele (2 goals, 2 points this term) and Patrik Laine (1 goal, 2 points) netted another two before the first interval after the Flames tied the score at 1-1.

It all went downhill for the visitors in the following frame, though. The Jets, who conceded most second-period goals last season (94), allowed Calgary to score four times in the second frame, with the fifth unanswered marker coming 16 seconds into the final third. Goalie Steve Mason, who was pulled for Connor Hellebuyck after allowing five goals on 20 shots three days earlier against Toronto, made 39 saves and has now gone 0-2-0 for the current campaign with a 6.53 GAA and a .831 save percentage. He is 9-4-0 in past meetings against the Edmonton Oilers with a 3.62 GAA and a .870 save percentage. The Winnipeg Jets are tied-6th in least goals scored per game after the first two fixtures (2.50), top of the league in most goals allowed on average (6.50 per contest), 7th worst in power play with a 9.1% success rate (1-for-11) and 2nd worst in penalty kill with 60% effectiveness (6-for-10).

Oilers Serve A Stinker In Vancouver

After shutting out the Calgary Flames with a score of 3-0 in their season opener on Wednesday, the Edmonton Oilers (1-1-0) looked like a completely different team while facing the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena on Saturday. Despite outshooting the hosts 35-26, Edmonton looked sluggish and apathetic, eventually managing to net just two goals in a 3-2 defeat. Kris Russell (1 goal, 2 points so far this term) and Ryan Nugent Hopkins (1 goal, 1 point) got on the scoreboard for the Oilers, who went 4-2 in the season series against the Canucks last year. Connor McDavid, who grabbed a hat trick against Calgary three days prior, was effectively neutralized by the ‘Nucks, failing to register a single point for the first time in 16 regular-season contests, dating back to Mar. 12. Leon Draisaitl, who collected two assists versus the Flames, was also held without a point and finished the game with a minus-1 coefficient.

Goalie Cam Talbot, who made 27 saves for his 19th career shutout on Wednesday, was pulled after conceding three goals on just seven shots. Laurent Brossoit (4-1-0 last term with a 1.99 GAA and a .928 save percentage) impressed in relief, stopping all 19 shots faced. He is 0-0-1 versus Winnipeg in past meetings with a 0.93 GAA and a .970 save percentage, while Talbot has posted a 5-1-0 career total against the Jets with a 1.84 GAA and a .945 save percentage. After the first two fixtures of the new season, the Oilers are joint-6th in least goals netted per game (2.50), 5th in least goals allowed on average (1.50), 18th in power play with 14.3% effectiveness (1-for-7) and 11th in penalty kill with an 87.5% success rate (7-for-8).

Trends

Winnipeg

  • Jets are 0-4 in their last 4 overall meetings with Oilers.
  • Jets are 0-4 in their last 4 games following a loss of 3 or more goals.

Edmonton

  • Oilers are 9-0 in their last 9 vs. a team with a winning % below .400.
  • Oilers are 4-0 in their last 4 vs. Central.

Edmonton went 3-0-0 against the Jets in their season series last year, outscoring Winnipeg 12-5, and it is hard to predict any other result this time around other than a victory for the Oilers. They didn’t “show up” in Vancouver, so expect some extra motivation to kick in here. Besides, Edmonton has picked up wins in 13 of its last 16 home contests, while the Jets have lost all of their last four fixtures following a defeat of three or more goals.

Pick: Edmonton Oilers -173
