No Connor McDavid. No problem for the Edmonton Oilers. While a win over the Blackhawks might not inspire confidence in most people, Edmonton looked good without its captain against Chicago and should be able to stay afloat until McDavid makes a full recovery. The Oilers still have more than enough talent to compete in this game. Draisaitl leads the NHL with 89 points and he’s benefitted from the increased responsibility with McDavid out, tallying six points over the last two games. Vasilevskiy has allowed two goals or less in each of his four February starts, so he’s due for a poor outing. He’s also been a tick worse at home, so I’ll take my chances with the Oilers pulling off the unlikely upset in this spot. . Read more at winnersandwhinners.com

Pick : Tampa Bay Lightning -1.5
The Edmonton Oilers are playing great hockey at the moment, but they've been owned by the Tampa Bay Lightning lately, losing seven of the last nine meetings and each of those last five losses have come by two or more goals. The Tampa Bay Lightning have found their footing and are tough to bet against when they look like the best team in the league. I'll take the home team and the PL for added value..

Pick : Lightning 4, Oilers 2
The Tampa Bay Lightning have been collecting victories despite a growing injured list and will try to extend their winning streak to nine Thursday night when they host the Edmonton Oilers, who are without star center Connor McDavid. The Lightning did not have captain Steven Stamkos (lower body) for Tuesday's 2-1 overtime win at Pittsburgh and fellow forwards Nikita Kucherov along with Anthony Cirelli left that contest with injuries.

Tampa Bay Lightnin
The Oilers have won 11 of their last 13 road encounters with the Eastern Conference and are 4-2 in their previous six outings on the road. However, the Oilers are winless in seven straight visits to Tampa, and I expect that trend to continue. The Lightning have been playing in a tremendous form lately, and their prolific offense should be a key factor in this game. The Oilers are a good offensive team with a couple of great players in Leon Draisaitl and Connor McDavid, but their defense is a big issue. Therefore, I’m backing the hosts to win at money line odds.. Read more at statsalt.com

Pick : oilers - lightning 1 - 4
The Edmonton Oilers have a tall task in front of them on Thursday as they’ll be visiting the hottest team in the NHL: the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tampa Bay finished with 62 wins last season but struggled out of the gate in their 2019-20 campaign with just a 17-13-4 record in their first 34 contests. Since that time, though, they’ve flipped a switch as they’ve won 20 of their last 23 games. The Oilers enter on a modest two-game winning streak but will be without franchise star Connor McDavid. They’re a big dog in this spot but can they surprise?. Read more at sportsinteraction.com
