Edmonton Oilers vs. Vancouver Canucks Game 2: Picks, predictions, odds and player props

The Edmonton Oilers will look to even things up in Vancouver tonight after an epic collapse in the third period that saw the Canucks erase a two-goal deficit to win 5-4.

It's going to be difficult for the Oilers to win this series without a win in Game 2. And they're going to have to do it with an injured Leon Draisaitl who did not practice with the Oilers yesterday in Vancouver.

That is a major blow to an Oilers team that is carried by their top two players. It's going to be difficult for Draisaitl to maintain his level of dominance when he's not 100%.

Quinn Hughes Over 3.5 Shots on Goal (+320)

The Canucks have the Oilers' number right now.

They are 5-0-0 against Edmonton this season, outscoring them 26-11. A big part of that success has come from the Canucks commitment to team defence under head coach, Rick Tocchet.

Edmonton struggled to generate scoring chances in Game 1 of the series. The Canucks lead all playoff teams in expected goals against per 60, scoring chances against per 60, and are second in high danger chances allowed per 60.

Between a banged-up Oilers team and the Canucks ability to defend, I have the Canucks taking a 2-0 series lead tonight in front of an electric Rogers Arena crowd.
