GAME TOTALS PICK
Three potential Hart Trophy finalists will take part in this star-studded matchup. That should lead to plenty of goals being scored, making the totals line of 5.5 a very attractive play. Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl of the Oilers proved to be two of the best offensive players last season. On the other side is the young phenom, Elias Pettersson. With help from J.T. Miller and Brock Boeser, Pettersson has helped Vancouver create one of the most explosive top lines in the NHL. These are also two teams that struggled defensively last season and with no preseason, we can expect that once again in this matchup. Vancouver fans will soon see just how valuable Jacob Markstrom was to their team’s success. Take the over in this matchup.
