The predictions for this week games are as follows:
Edmonton Oilers vs Toronto Maple Leafs
Battle of the top two teams in the North division undergoes this Monday when Edmonton Oilers face Toronto Maple Leafs at Rogers Place. The Leafs are the leaders of the north and have won two games in a row. Humiliated with the 0-4 loss over the Leafs in their last affair, Oilers seeks revenge. However, Oilers are very good at powerplays this year. The hosts seem to enjoy their NHL journey as of now. With Mitchell Marner and Auston Matthews in a splendid form, the Leafs eyes to take home the championship. Although the Oilers can turn the tables upside down, they seem like they have lost somewhere. The Oilers are resilient, and so is their NHL power rankings. It will be interesting to witness the top two teams of North battle for supremacy. However, the hosts are the favourites to win this clash.
Winnipeg Jets vs Vancouver Canucks
Two opposite teams surf in the ice to make a statement this Monday at Bell MTS Place. Jets ready to host Canucks in a gripping fixture. Whilst the Jets are on a four-game winning streak, Canucks are in the four-game losing. The Canucks have lowered themselves to the 6th spot after losing back-to-back games. Their path to playoffs seems to be impossible, but they have to strategize their gameplay. Whilst this looks like a one-sided affair with the dice coming in favour of the hosts. But one cannot deny the fact that Canucks are thirsty for the win. It’s the dominance of the hosts in their last 5 meetings with the visitors as they have thrashed them four times. The hosts have an advantage in the form of a home rink and are stealing the victory this Monday.
San Jose Sharks vs Colorado Avalanche
Living in their worst nightmare, San Jose Sharks hosts their next fixture against Colorado Avalanche at SAP Center this Monday. The Sharks have just delivered one of the worst performances this season by giving St. Louis Blues a 6-7 win. Continue with their poor form in the campaign, the Sharks at the bottom of the West Division. Tomas Hertl is still dealing with an illness for the Sharks. Meanwhile, the Avalanche are way ahead in the league and are very close to the playoffs already. However, this clash might also end in overtime. Sharks need to win this game to avoid relegation, but that is easier said than done against a team like Avalanche. Either way, the results are, one thing is for sure, the entertainment. Expect the visitors to take down the hosts very easily.
Florida Panthers vs Carolina Hurricanes
At BB&T Center, Florida Panthers and Carolina Hurricanes face off against each other in an electrifying fixture this Monday. With three losses in a row, the Hurricanes bounced back in their last affair against Florida Panthers, thanks to Warren Foegele’s unbelievable goal. The Hurricanes defence was not up to the mark until their recent encounter. However, the Panthers are rock steady in the campaign. Jonathan Huberdeau has been splendid throughout the season, with 24 points in 20 matches. They are 2nd in the league, with some knockout performances. The Panthers have not made it to the playoffs in decades. That missed opportunity could change this year. With revenge in their eyes, the Panthers are stealing the win, probably with a smaller lead.
Ottawa Senators vs Calgary Flames
Table dwellers Ottawa Senators are all set to host their arch-rivals Calgary Flames at Canadian Tire Centre this Monday. Senators are already at the bottom of the division, and one more loss can end their journey to the playoffs. However, they bounced back with three wins in a row but again fell short to the Flames 3-6 in their last match. Flames are, meanwhile, two spots above the hosts. With a solid defensive approach in their previous affair, the Flames still have the chance to qualify for the playoffs. However, the goaltender Jacob Markstrom is still questionable to play for the Flames. In their last five appearances, Flames are 3-2 to the hosts. It will be an opportunity to settle the scores. The Senators seek to take revenge, but the visitors are making two in a row.
