Ottawa Senators vs Edmonton Oilers 03/10/2021 Betting Odds:
Almost, but not quite- again. For the fourth time in five total meetings so far, the Ottawa Senators came close to pulling off an upset against the Oilers only to be denied by some late-game heroics from the latter. The recent loss has kept Ottawa winless against Edmonton this year – this despite being able to outshoot their rivals 161-150 over the five games they have played against each other.
It seemed that the Oilers had been made aware of the stats prior to Monday’s game that they registered a 37-28 shots advantage as they exploited a handful of infractions committed by the Senators, most particularly in the second period. Thomas Chabot continues to exhibit his playmaking skills, putting up 12 points – all of which came from assists – over his last three games to lead the team. The defenseman has 19 points so far, but despite his excellent showing, his team just could not quite figure out how to establish a consistent winning formula.
Players to watch: T. Chabot D (G 3, A 16, PTS 19), B. Tkachuk LW (G 9, A 9, PTS 18), D. Batherson RW (G 9, A 9, PTS 18).
The groove is definitely back in Edmonton. The Oilers have followed up their squeaker against the Calgary Flames on Saturday with a second straight close win against the Senators on Monday that enabled them to build a new winning streak after figuring in a three-game hiccup. One apparent adjustment that contributed to their recent success was putting Leon Draisaitl, Connor McDavid and Kailer Yamamoto together on the same line. Over the two-game surge, McDavid has amassed one goal and four assists, Yamamoto has notched two goals and an assist, while Draisaitl chipped in a goal and an assist. The Oilers are just a point behind the Winnipeg Jets and six behind division leaders Toronto Maples Leafs to sit at the third spot in the North. Despite a fairly commendable showing so far this season, the team is still on a mission to improve their home record, which currently stands at .500.
Players to watch: C. McDavid C (G 15, A 30, PTS 45), L. Draisaitl C (G 11, A 26, PTS 37), R. Nugent-Hopkins C (G 10, A 10, PTS 20).
