Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers had come out like a house on fire when they started the season. But for some reason, the team hit a stumbling block and eventually dropped a series of games. Edmonton has now lost nine of its last 11 games and has now fallen to fourth place in the Pacific with 38 points in 32 games. The situation has frustrated the members of the team, including Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, who are leading the team in points with 53 and 52, respectively. The Oilers are keen to bounce back and snap their skid, leaving Draisaitl and McDavid with no other choice but to move forward amidst the struggles. 

Players to watch: C. McDavid C (G 19, A 34, PTS 53), L. Draisaitl C (G 25, A 27, PTS 52), R. Nugent-Hopkins C (G 3, A 23, PTS 26).

New York Rangers

Mika Zibanejad has been playing like a man possessed for the Rangers. In the team’s last two victories over the Tampa Bay Lightning, the Swedish centre carried the load offensively, scoring the lone goal of the shootout during last Friday’s 4-3 win before following it up with a hat trick on Sunday’s 4-0 dominant win. Zibanejad’s stellar play is a welcome development for New York. But the team also knows that it will take a total team effort in their bid to stretch their winning streak to three. 

Players to watch: A. Panarin LW (G 10, A 26, PTS 36), A. Fox D (G 5, A 26, PTS 31), C. Kreider LW (G 19, A 8, PTS 27).
