The Pittsburgh Penguins continue on the road and will visit the Edmonton Oilers on Monday night. These teams met twice last season and the Oilers outscored the Pens in both games 5-2 at home and 5-1 on the road.
The Penguins have won 4 of their first 5 games this season and are 1-1 on the road. Last season they were 22-10-5 on the road with a 42-22-10 overall ranking third in the Metropolitan division. The Penguins were 12-8-2 against opponents in the Metropolitan. Pittsburgh ranked fourth in the Eastern Conference averaging 5.7 assists per game, led by Kris Letang with 0.8.

In their last 10 games the Penguins are 6-4, averaging 4.9 goals, 5.9 assists, 3.1 penalties and seven penalty minutes while giving up 3.1 goals per game with a .902 save percentage.
Edmonton get here with a 2-3 record after losing 0-2 against the St Louis Blues. They had a 49-27-6 overall record last season ranking 2nd in the Pacific. The Oilers were 20-5-0 against the rest of their division. Edmonton averages 8.2 penalty minutes per game, the 10th-most in the Western Conference.

Pittsburgh are 10-4 SU in their last 14 games against Edmonton.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Pittsburgh's last 6 games on the road.
Pittsburgh are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games when playing on the road against Edmonton.
Edmonton are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Edmonton's last 12 games against Pittsburgh.
Edmonton are 2-5 SU in their last 7 games at home.
The Penguins have been pretty good so far this season scoring 6 goals per game in 4 of their last 5 games and are 6-1 in the last 7 games playing in Edmonton. The Oilers have struggled so far this season losing 3 of their last 4 games and couldn't score a single goal in their last game against the Blues, they dominated the Penguins last season but things are looking different this year. I think the Oilers will play better this time and score more than 2 goals and with the Penguins on fire right now the over looks like the best play.
