New York Rangers vs Edmonton Oilers Bodog NHL Puck Betting Odds
Teams headed in opposite directions meet when the New York Rangers visit the Edmonton Oilers as part of a seven-game slate on the National Hockey League betting board at Bodog. Which team is headed in which direction is surprising as the Rangers have stumbled some lately while the Oilers have been slick during a recent winning streak. Game time is scheduled for 9:30 PM ET on December 11, 2015, at Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta. They’ll be wearing white on the road tonight but we are backing the Broadway Blueshirts here.

New York Rangers: Regressing after a strong season start

Terrific out of the starting gate, with a 16-3-2 record, the Rangers have regressed some as New York is just 2-5-1 dating back to November 25. Following a long run at the top, the Blueshirts have fallen one point behind the Washington Capitals who now own first place in the NHL Metropolitan Division. After sweeping through Western Canada a year ago, outscoring the Canucks, Oilers and Flames by a 12-3 combined margin, New York lost 2-1 in Vancouver on Wednesday to open their 2015 WestCan trek. Pointless in three games – Rick Nash is due to bust out at some point.

Edmonton Oilers: Momentum has been building during December in the Alberta Capital

Pulling out of a 3-7-2 skid, which began with the loss of stud rookie Connor McDavid to a shoulder injury on November 3, Edmonton has picked up the pace as they are on a 5-1-0 roll and have won four straight home games. The Oilers four December wins have been close as they outscored the Bruins, Stars, Sabers and Sharks by a 13-8 margin. The goal total is a step in the right direction as the Oilers closed November on a 1-3-1 slide and scored just seven goals during those five games.

Oilers vs Rangers NHL Prediction: Edmonton last played on Wednesday recording a 4-3 (OT) win against San Jose. Henrik Lundqvist (14-6-3 GAA 1.99) versus Anders Nilsson (9-7-1 GGA 2.51) is the netminding matchup tonight. King Henry allowed four goals and he’s 1-1-1 during his last three starts. Nilsson stopped 137 of the 145 shots he faced and has been a key contributor to the Oilers four game winning streak. Edmonton has trouble riding momentum, they haven’t posted a 6-1-0 line since November 2011, while New York is too talented to keep losing. Siding with the Big Apple Boys – Give us New York with a 500 unit wager on their money line price at Bodog.
