Vegas Golden Knights vs Edmonton Oilers Predictions and Picks

The Vegas Golden Knights will stay in Edmonton for Game Four of this series. The Golden Knights won Games One and Three of this series and are now in a strong position to move on to the next round. However, the Oilers won Game Two and have shown they can beat anybody, so I would not count them out quite yet.

The Golden Knights have seen Mark Stone, Jack Eichel, and Chandler Stephenson step us as their leading scorers in the Playoffs. Stone leads the team with 11 points, but Eichel and Stephenson have ten points each. However, Vegas may need to see another player step up to the challenge. No other Golden Knight has six points or more, so Vegas is looking to three players to provide a lot of offense.

The Golden Knights turned the tide of this series with their Game Three win. That victory showed me that they have more momentum and are the better team at this moment. I would not expect them to win again tonight, but they will win in Vegas..

The Golden Knights are yet to announce who wills start Game Four. Laurent Brossoit has played in almost every game but had to leave with a wrist injury in the third period. Adin Hill came on in relief of him. Hill is worse than Brossoit but has only played in 67 minutes in the Playoffs.

The Oilers got the wind taken out of their sails when they lost Game Three. Edmonton is known for their strong offense but could not bring it in that matchup. Their defense is unreliable, so they must score many goals each game going forward.

The Oilers’ offense has consisted mainly of Leon Draisaitl, Connor McDavid, Evan Bouchard, and Zach Hyman. Other players have stepped up here and there, but these four have done the heavy lifting. Draisaitl leads this group with 17 points, but McDavid, Bouchard, and Hyman have all played significant minutes and have a combined 28 assists.

Stuart Skinner has started in net for most of the Playoffs, but after a tough Game Three, it is unclear if he will be starting Game Four. Jack Campbell is the Oilers’ other option. Campbell has performed well in the Playoffs but has only seen 78 minutes of action.

The Oilers may have lost Game Three, but they are still playing and have the stronger offensive team. Bet on them to win this game.

Why Might the Vegas Golden Knights Win?

The Golden Knights are the underdogs but can win if they score first and play tough defense.

The Golden Knights may have won Game Three, but they are still playing on the road. They will enter a hostile environment and need to shut up the crowd quickly. The best way to do that would be by scoring the first goal of the game.

The Golden Knights may have crushed the Oilers in Game Three, but that is unlikely to happen twice in a row. Vegas held Edmonton to only one goal for the first time in the Playoffs. Since the Oilers are full of scorers, I do not see that happening again. However, the Golden Knights can still limit their scoring with tough defense.

Why Might the Edmonton Oilers Win?

The Oilers are the favorites but will only win if they score a power play goal and win faceoffs. 

The Oilers have converted over half of their power plays in the Playoffs. However, they were not able to convert any opportunities in Game Three. Edmonton only had two chances, but you would expect to get one goal from two opportunities. The Oilers must take advantage of their power plays in this game and score at least one goal.

The Oilers won just over half of their faceoffs in Game Three. Obviously, it is better to win more faceoffs than you lose, but Edmonton must win at least ⅔ of them today. If they do, they will limit the Golden Knights’ scoring opportunities and increase theirs.

Golden Knights Key Players: (C) Jonathan Marchessault

Jonathan Marchessault had a strong regular season but was underperforming in the Playoffs until Game Three of this series. The center shot six times and scored twice. Those were his first goals of the Playoffs and some very necessary ones for the Golden Knights. Marchessault must take the momentum from that game and score another today.

Oilers Key Player: (C) Connor McDavid

Connor McDavid has taken on more of a passing role in the Playoffs. The center has five goals but also has ten assists. He did not score in his last game but scored twice in Game Two. McDavid must shoot more in this game and score at least once. His offense will provide some key scoring for the Oilers.
