Betting Analysis For Edmonton Oilers at Calgary Flames
Edmonton Oilers Betting Stats & Analysis
While the Oilers did lose game one, they showed they were not going to go away in this series. Being down by so many goals, it would have been easy to wrap it up for the night and just take the loss, but the Oilers fought back.
The Oilers were down 1-5 and 2-6 in the second period. When the Flames got to six goals, it seemed to spark the Oilers’ offense, scoring four unanswered goals to tie the game at 6-6.
Unfortunately, the Oilers would allow three goals in the third period from the Flames and go on to lose 6-9. The Oilers lost game one of the first-round series against the Kings.
Connor McDavid continued his terrific postseason play with another big game. He has now recorded 18 total points, scoring five goals and assisting on 13 others.
Leon Draisaitl also had a great game, scoring a goal and assisting on two others in game one. He is now up to 12 total points, scoring six goals and assisting on six others.
It was not a good day for either goaltender for the Oilers. Mike Smith gave up three goals, and Mikko Koskinen gave up five goals. The Flames did add an empty-net goal as well.
Mike Smith did not get the start in this game, but going forward, it would be safe to assume that he will be in there for the remainder of this series. After starting every game in the first round, the Oilers may have just tried to get him a little extra rest, which backfired.
The Oilers do not have anyone on their injury report for tonight’s game.
