(NHL) Vancouver vs. Edmonton, 01/13/2021 10:00 PM, Score: 5 - 3
Money Line: -125.00 Edmonton (Home)
Result: Loss
I'm playing on EDMONTON. The season is only just getting started but the Canucks already had Sunday's practice cancelled "out of an abundance of caution," due to a potential Covid-19 exposure. Though they did return to practice, its a less than ideal way to enter the season. Don't expect the Oilers to show them any sympathy. The Oilers have underachieved in recent seasons and they're absolutely hungry to get the current campaign off to a winning start. The Canucks lost a lot to free agency (all of their unresticted free agents left) and are likely to regress this season, in my opinion. The Oilers have taken four of the past six meetings, two of the last three when listed as the home team. McDavid remains one of the best players in the game. Look for him to lead his team to an opening night victory.
