Vegas Golden Knights Analysis

This season, the Vegas Golden Knights’ offense has showcased an elite performance with Jonathan Marchessault as their leading-scorer finishing with an outstanding 66 points of which 41 are goals. He has the team’s back all the way, every step of the way through the season along with Jack Eichel and William Karlsson. Their speed and the component of them are really of the essence against the Oilers, who are those who show weakness in their road games as they widen the spread. Nevertheless, the real challenge lies in skating around the Oilers’ strong defensive players, as well as Saint-Laurent netminder, Stuart Skinner.

Defensively, the  Golden Knights rely to a great extent on goalie Logan Thompson. In addition to an incredible save percentage of .908 (43 games), Thompson’s performance against the Oilers will be pivotal if they want to come out on top.. The Oilers having a powerful line of scorers like that of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, presents a serious situation that Thompson in the net needs to master plus most to the most.

Edmonton Oilers Analysis

On offense, the Oilers have as their main weapon the league’s best scorer Connor McDavid who has totaled 130 points in this season that is the highest in the league. With Draisaitl’s contribution of 102 points, that’s almost enough to create a force in the offense. Their ability to score home ice against Vegas is further written into the fact that Vegas has a losing road game ATS record, giving them the edge. The clash of seasoned Edmonton’s offense and stifling defense of Vegas will certainly be one of the central moments in the match. Goaltender Thompson will be in the spotlight.

The Oilers use Stuart Skinner in the net, who is playing .906 out of goal in 55 games. Skinner will have to neutralize the bombers, especially Marchessault and Eichel, to decrease chances for Vegas to score and take us to the next round. Edmonton’s defense, the key factor that may dictate the outcome of the game with the variety of offensive maneuvers of Vegas, has to be better than their opponents to secure the victory.
