Edmonton Oilers vs Los Angeles Kings 4-29-2023 Analysis, Predictions and Picks

West 1st Round – Game 6, EDM leads series 3-2

The Edmonton Oilers and Los Angeles Kings are gearing up for a high-stakes showdown in Game Six of the First Round. With a 3-2 series lead, the Oilers have been dominant lately, relying on their explosive offense to put them ahead. Despite the Kings being on the brink of elimination, they are not giving up hope and are determined to rally on their home ice and force a Game Seven. Fans are in for a nail-biting game as the Oilers aim to finish the series with a win while the Kings fight tooth and nail to stay alive.

The Oilers have heavily relied on their top-line duo of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, who has been unstoppable with eight goals and 10 assists. But it’s not just them – the rest of the team has stepped up, with Evander Kane, Zach Hyman, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins chipping in five goals and seven assists. Even defensemen Evan Bouchard and Darnell Nurse have contributed to the offense with two goals and nine assists. However, the Oilers’ defense has been a bit shaky, giving up 16 goals in the series, with seven of them coming in the last two games. Nurse, Bouchard, and Mattias Ekholm have been holding down the fort on the top two pairings, but the rest of the group needs to step up to counter the Kings’ strong puck possession and shot selection.

  • Edmonton Is 7-3 SU in their last 10 games on the road against the Los Angeles Kings.
  • The total went  OVER in 7 of the Edmonton Oilers’ last 9 games played on a Saturday.
  • The total hung OVER in 6 of the Oilers’ last 6 games played on a Saturday when on the road.

Edmonton Oilers vs Los Angeles Kings 4-29-2023 Analysis, Predictions and Picks

The Kings‘ playoff hopes are hanging by a thread after two devastating losses to the Oilers. The team’s offense has been firing on all cylinders, with Anze Kopitar, Adrian Kempe, and Viktor Arvidsson leading the charge with a combined seven goals and 12 assists. Alex Iafallo, Gabriel Vilardi, and Drew Doughty have also contributed to the team’s impressive 16-goal tally. However, their efforts have been negated by the team’s struggling defense, which has given up a whopping 11 goals in the last two games. 

Drew Doughty, Michael Anderson, and Matt Roy have done their best to hold the top pairings together, but the rest of the group has been unable to keep up with the Oilers’ potent offense. In addition, goaltender Joonas Korpisalo has been struggling to keep the puck out of the net, conceding 17 goals on 177 shots.

  • Los Angeles is 3-7 SU in their last 10 games at home against Edmonton.
  • The total went OVER in 4 of the Kings’ last 6 games against an opponent in the Pacific Division.
  • The total remained UNDER in 5 of Los Angeles’ last 6 games played on a Saturday.

Edmonton Oilers vs Los Angeles Kings. The NHL pick for this game is the Edmonton Oilers. The Oilers will be in for a battle on Saturday, as the Kings look to stay alive in the series following a crushing defeat in game 5. Despite their recent struggles, the Kings have a roster that includes some seasoned players who were instrumental in the team’s Stanley Cup triumph almost a decade ago. These veterans know what it takes to win in high-pressure situations and won’t go down without a fight. With their backs against the wall, expect the Kings to adopt a more defensive approach and force the series to a decisive game 7. My prediction is a close 4-3 victory for the Kings.
