On the night of December 20, there will be a total of 11 matches in the NHL regular season, including the game between the New York Islanders and the Edmonton Oilers. You can find the match forecast on the pages of our resource.

New York Islanders

The current regular season for the Islanders has been decent as they currently hold the sixth spot in their conference. The competition is so tight that the gap from the 11th place is just three points. In their last game, the team was trailing 0-4 on the road against Montreal, but managed to create intrigue by scoring three goals in the final period. However, the opponent still won 5-3, scoring the last goal into the empty net. Five players will miss the upcoming battle due to injuries.

Edmonton Oilers

The breakthrough from the Oilers was long-awaited, as the team is strong but was showing weak results. Eventually, the club had an eight-game winning streak, but has since suffered two losses. Edmonton is currently in 13th place in the Western Conference. Playoff chances exist as they are only 5 points behind the desired top eight, with at least two games in hand compared to the main competitors.

In their last meeting, the Oilers fell at home to Florida with a score of 1-5. Notably, both teams had an equal number of shots on goal, but poor finishing let the hosts down. The club faces three squad losses ahead of this confrontation.

Interesting Facts about the Match and Head-to-Head History

  • A little over a month ago, the teams faced each other, and Edmonton won on their home turf with a score of 4-1.
  • The Islanders have only lost 3 out of 17 games on their home turf in regulation.
  • The Oilers have 4 wins and 8 losses on the road, with no overtime games yet.

Prediction

Bookmakers slightly favor the guests in this match, perhaps indicating that Edmonton's level of motivation is slightly higher. However, the Islanders also have no time for a break. This will be a tough and unpredictable battle, and we place our bet on the total goals being over 6.
