Ottawa hosts Edmonton on Thursday night at the Canadian Tire Centre. Both teams are well out of the playoff conversation and the Senators are five points clear of last in the East heading into Wednesday night. The Oilers have dropped three of their last five games, but picked up a win against Carolina last time out.

Draisaitl’s goal, 3 assists help Oilers roll past Hurricanes

Edmonton wraps up a four-game North American East Coast road trip, which has actually been successful so far (2-1). The latest result was a 7-3 blowout over Carolina on Tuesday night. They held a 3-2 lead after a wild start to the game in the first period. They scored an additional six goals in the second period — while being outshot 12-10 on goals — and cruised to an easy victory. All seven goals were scored by different players.

Center Leon Draisaitl (66 pts) racked up the most points (4) with an additional three assists to his lone goal. Left wing Pontus Aberg was next in line with three points, featuring one of the goals and two assists. Goaltender Cam Talbot (27-27-2) has now won five of his last six games between the pipes, giving up just 11 total goals in the successful stretch. Right wing Zack Kassian (17 pts) is questionable for Thursday’s game with a head injury.

Anderson gets pulled after giving up four goals, Senators lose big

After rattling off three straight wins, Ottawa has dropped the last two. It was close against Columbus, but the team fell apart against Florida at home, 7-2. They allowed four goals in the second period and never got back into the contest — they had just seven shots on goal in the third period. They were down 4-1 just 27 minutes into the game. Right wing Marian Gaborik (20 pts) had one of the two goals and he’s now had four points (3 goals) in the last four games.

Right wing Mark Stone (62 pts) is listed as questionable with his leg injury. He hasn’t played since March 9th against Calgary, a game in where his 11-game point streak came to a close. Left wing Ryan Dzingel (33 pts) is also questionable with an upper body injury and he missed the blowout loss to Florida on Tuesday night. Goaltender Craig Anderson (21-21-6) is projected to be the starter, who was handed the loss against the Panthers last time out.

Trends

Oilers are:

  • 18-7 in their last 25 games on Thursday
  • 7-3 in their last 10 road games against teams with a losing road record

Senators are:

  • 9-24 in their last 33 against teams with a losing record
  • 1-5 in their last 6 home games

It’s very hard to deny Edmonton wrapping up a successful East Coast swing. Not having Stone in the lineup is taking its toll for Ottawa, so take the momentum that the Oilers currently have and run with it.
