New Jersey Devils vs Edmonton Oilers Expert Hockey Pick
New Jersey Devils vs Edmonton Oilers Expert Hockey Pick 11/20/15 November 20th 2015. The Devils flying under the radar again, what they do best. If only other cities were not so money hungry jamming every media bonehead in front of these professional hockey players…nevermind.
The Devils dropped a 3-2 decision at Scotiabank Saddledome as their record fell to 10-71. The Devils offense was quiet with Jordan Tookoo and Bobby Farnham providing the scoring while Corey Schneider recorded 27 stops in absorbing the loss.
How is Ryan Miller doing in Vancouver? Having Schneider in-goal for the Devils is what’s working to the Devils’ advantage so far during this 2015-16 campaign. Even after Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to the Flames, Schneider is 9-5-1 with an outstanding 2.05 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage.
Connor McDavid or not these Oilers have several number one draft picks who can carry this team. However the only one who is finally molding into an all around hockey player is Taylor Hall. He is the force on offense for this Oilers squad, not Connor McDavid. As a matter of fact I bet McDavid will have a series of injuries in his NHL career. Unless he shakes off the non NHL game style he still plays. He will get hit by the big boys and a constant target. He is no Crosby who has muscle and built for the NHL.
The Oilers have given up four goals in each of the setbacks during this three-game kid. Anders Nilsson played in the first and third games, while Cam Talbot minded the net in the middle contest against Los Angeles.
NHL Starting Goalies
New Jersey Devils – Cory Schneider
Kinkaid allowed three goals on 31 shots in the Devils win vs. Vancouver back on November 8th. It was Kinkaid’s first win of the season and has him coming into Friday night with a 2.69 GAA and .893 SV%. He makes for a decent spot start, but the Oilers do average 2.63 goals per game which isn’t reflected in their 6-12-1 record.
Edmonton Oilers – Anders Nilsson
Nilsson gave up four goals on 27 shots in the Oilers loss to the Blackhawks on Wednesday. Nilsson has dropped three of his last four while recording 3.24 GAA and .890 SV% over that span.
