Edmonton Oilers vs Florida Panthers Preview
The Florida Panthers have dropped two straight contests after a 12 game win streak and closed a six game road swing with a game against Tampa Bay yesterday, Sunday January 17th 2016.
Florida has just five goals over its last four after potting 36 goals over the first 11 wins of their win streak. Every streak comes to an end, that is why it’s called a streak.
Roberto Luongo also has had a setback lately, registering a 3.80 goals-against average during the skid after posting a 1.31 mark over nine consecutive wins – a club record for a goaltender. The veteran will have the night off tonight, allowing Al Montoya to man between the pipes, who’s permitted one goal in winning five straight starts and had 24 saves against Edmonton earlier this month.
The Edmonton Oilers rank a horrific 24th overall in power play percentage as they convert 17.2 percent of their chances on the man advantage. Edmonton is also 16th in penalty killing as they kill off 80.1 percent of their shorthanded situations.
With no surprise the Oilers have only potted 22 goals over their last 14 games, with Taylor Hall recording one and Jordan Eberle two over that span. Neither has had one in their past six games…..ouch…
