Kings at Oilers 10/5/19 - NHL Picks & Predictions

With the Kings they are playing in their opening game of the season here and they have to face an Oilers team that was able to come into the game with quite a bit of speed, but also a decent goal tending game. The Kings, though, are a team that is a little bit older and will have to rely on a goal tender that has been injured in the past and has not really shown up to being able to complete a full season.

Anze Kopitar is the player who the Kings have had a chance to rely on for the offense in the past. The downside is the Kings are a team that does not really have an impressive team coming back. Jonathan Quick is the goalie who is coming back for the Kings, but he is the one who has been injury prone recently.

The Oilers are heading into the game her with a decent win on the year over the Canucks. Granted, it was not as strong of a win as what the Oilers would have liked to see, but it was a win that the Oilers were able to prove that their offense has been able to do decent on the year and should be able to continue to play at a higher level than what is expected and that definitely can give the Oilers an edge in this game.

When it comes to the goalkeeping the Oilers do have an impressive star that is going to come into the game. That is the former Coyotes and Flames goal who has been able to come into the game here with Mike Smith in the net. In the game against the Canucks he was able to turn away 93.9% of the shots that were sent towards him.

The Oilers are facing a Kings team that has a lot of question marks and is a little bit older than the Oilers. That also means the Kings may have to use shorter shifts to get the game completed and that really can pose some problems for the Kings in this game here as the Oilers skaters are able to play quite a bit better in the game. Final Score Prediction, Edmonton Oilers win 4-2.
