Toronto Maple Leafs vs. Edmonton Oilers preview: Odds, trends, injuries, how to watch

Tonight's all-Canadian NHL matchup pitches two teams in very different form against each other, as the surging Edmonton Oilers host the stumbling Toronto Maple Leafs.

There's a mouthwatering array of talent on show, headlined by the season's leading goalscorer Auston Matthews of the Leafs and, of course, Edmonton's five-time Art Ross Trophy winner Connor McDavid.

Toronto Maple Leafs v Edmonton Oilers Predictions

Edmonton Oilers 3-Way +100

Despite running up a 10-game winning sequence, Edmonton haven't been particularly convincing of late. They needed overtime to see off Montreal and Detroit in their last two games and eked out a 2-1 victory over a banged-up Blackhawks outfit before that.

The Oilers didn't score more than two regulation-time goals in any of those games.

However, complacency may have been a factor and the Oilers should be fully focused for the visit of the star-studded Maple Leafs.

Toronto are on the ropes after a pair of chastening home losses, including after blowing a 3-0 lead against Colorado, and Edmonton look the bet to continue their streak.

Toronto Maple Leafs to score the first goal -105

Edmonton have been made to work to keep their win streak going, battling back from early deficits in all three games of their recent road trip, and the same could be the case back in front of their own fans tonight.

The Leafs, on the other hand, have struck first in four of their last five games.

Zach Hyman anytime goalscorer +115

With a high-scoring game expected, the anytime goalscorer odds aren't long, but Toronto winger Zach Hyman looks a bet to put the biscuit in the basket at some point.

Currently tied sixth in the NHL scoring charts with 26 goals, Hyman has been a consistent producer. He has scored at least once in 12 of his last 21 games, including six of his last eight.
