New York Islanders vs Edmonton Oilers 02-11-2022 Spread Game Analysis and Tips

New York Islanders vs Edmonton Oilers 02/11/2022 – The Edmonton Oilers will be playing their first game under newly appointed head coach Jay Woodroft when they host the New York Islanders on Friday night inside Rogers Place. Amidst a frustrating skid, the Oilers management was forced to fire Dave Tippett on Thursday. The team has lost back-to-back since returning from the break, but top betting sites for NHL still tag the home team as slight favorites with a -138 match-winner price. Meanwhile, the visiting Islanders are coming off a huge 6-3 victory on the road against the Vancouver Canucks; the team, however, is tasked to defy a +115 underdog price to win.

New York Islanders

The Islanders went on a scoring spree as early as the first period in their return to action on Wednesday. Coming out like a house on fire, the team netted six goals – five of which came in the first salvo – to get back on the winning track after a scoreless outing in their last game prior to the break. The performance provides the much-needed confidence for the Islanders as they continue their road trip. Against a lowly Oilers squad, New York could set themselves up for another upset win on the road. There is still a lot of work to do. The team is still at the sixth spot of the Metropolitan Division with 40 points in 40 games. One silver lining, however, is the amount of games the team is still scheduled to play. At .500 win-loss percentage, there is still hope for the Islanders. 

Players to watch: M. Barzal C (G 11, A 18, PTS 29), B. Nelson C (G 15, A 8, PTS 23), J. Bailey RW (G 3, A 17, PTS 20).

Edmonton Oilers

It has been quite a chaotic atmosphere inside the Oilers camp over the past few days. After managing to score just a single goal in their last two games, Edmonton’s management decided to send Dave Tippett packing. It was the team’s third loss in their last four games. The most recent losses to start the second half of the season raises concern for the Oilers, including their fans. Although they still have a winning record so far, the trend does not look promising. That means there is a significant pressure on Jay Woodroft’s shoulders. It will be interesting to see how Edmonton responds against the Islanders on Friday. 

Players to watch: L. Draisaitl C (G 33, A 31, PTS 64), C. McDavid C (G 23, A 38, PTS 61), R. Nugent-Hopkins C (G 6, A 27, PTS 33).
