Oilers vs. Avalanche prediction: Edmonton a live underdog


With 15 wins in their last 20 games, the Edmonton Oilers are starting to look like they could be a legitimate dark horse this spring. However, the Oilers will face a tough test Friday night when they welcome Stanley Cup favorites Colorado Avalanche to Alberta.

When the Avs came into play Thursday night, the Avs ranked third in the NHL in goals per game, fifth in power play percentage, and fifth in five-for-five goals per 60 minutes.

A few months ago, the Avs would have been a nightmare matchup for the Oilers and their leaky defense. But since Jay Woodcroft took over in February, Edmonton (22-8-3) has improved across the ice, limiting teams to just 10.2 high-risk chances per 60 minutes in five-a-side. They’ve gotten much tougher.

Add in the fact that Mike Smith has been the league’s hottest goaltender for the past month and the Avalanche are devastated and you have a recipe for an Oilers win Friday night.
