Boston -200 Total 5.5
If there's ever been a battle between David and Goliath during this young NHL season, it'll take place on Thursday when the lowly Edmonton Oilers travel to Beantown to play for two points against the Bruins. The Oilers remain steadily in the basement of the NHL -- for the ninth season in a row -- while the Bruins seem to be playing below their talent level.
Only a few seasons ago, Jordan Eberle notched 34 goals on an eye-popping .189 shooting percentage, appearing poised to break out as one of the best young goal scorers in the league. Since then, however, he's emerged as a better playmaker than shooter. This season he has only three goals, but six assists, leading the Oilers.
Boston has always had an impressive ability to pull depth players out of nowhere, and this season's emergence of Carl Soderberg has proven the point yet again. Soderberg leads all Bruins with seven assists and ten points despite only 93 NHL games under his belt. If Zdeno Chara is truly on the decline, the Bruins may have a ready replacement with Dougie Hamilton, who has notched two goals and five assists to lead the Bruins defense in scoring.
