Edmonton Oilers @ Calgary Flames Tips


The Edmonton Oilers travel to Calgary this weekend to take on the Flames in a pair of NHL North Division all-Canadian matches. The first takes place on Sunday, February 21. 

Edmonton are third in the NHL North Division, and in the hunt for a playoff place come the end of the regular season. Calgary are two places below them in fifth, and still have a slim chance of a playoff spot, but need to improve their results. 

I’m picking Edmonton to win this game, despite being the away team. They have the stronger team, better players, and score a lot more goals, although they concede a lot also. This could even be a draw after regular time, with the Oilers winning via a sudden death shootout. 

  • Edmonton 3rd in NHL North Division
  • Edmonton are 10-8 this season 
  • Calgary 5th in NHL North Division 
  • Calgary are 8-8 this season 

Head to Head 


These two teams have played each other 95 times, and the Calgary Flames lead their head to head with the Edmonton Oilers by 53 wins to 42. In their most recent six matches Calgary lead by four games to two. Their most recent match came in February this year, with the Flames winning 6-4. 

Calgary Flames Form

 
Calgary have won 8 and lost 8 this season, one of their defeats being on an overtime shootout. The Flames are 5th in the seven-team North Division, made up of Canadian teams to save them from excessive travel during the current pandemic. 

Calgary have won four of their last six games, although they lost their most recent game to the Vancouver Canucks 5-1. That was the final game in a 4-match series that finished 2-2. 

Edmonton Oilers Form 


Edmonton have won 10 and lost 8 this season, placing them third in the NHL’s North Division. The Oilers are level on points with the second placed Montreal Canadiens, but eight points adrift of table-toppers the Toronto Maple Leafs. 

Edmonton have won four of their last five games, most recently swapping games with the Winnipeg Jets, losing the first 6-5 on Tuesday, but wining the second 3-2 on Thursday. 

Edmonton’s upcoming game with Calgary is the first of two, with the second taking place the following day. The Oilers three key scorers Connor McDavid, Leon Draisaitl and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins have found the net a combined 26 times this season.

Verdict

There’s not that much between these two teams, with the edge going to Edmonton, who have the better record, the higher placing, and have only lost one of their last five games. Edmonton score a lot of goals, although they do concede plenty too.
 
I’m backing the Oilers to win this game during regular time by a margin of two goals or less. This game might well be tied after regular time, with Edmonton’s superior attacking players scoring the winning goals in a shootout.
