The Tampa Bay Lightning defeated the Vancouver Canucks 4-2 on Saturday and are boasting a 3-1-1 record for the season as they’re coming to Alberta to face the Edmonton Oilers. The hosts are still looking for their first win of the season, but a W won’t come easy tonight either as they’ll be up against one of the Eastern Conference’s better teams.

Especially not considering the penalty kill they’ve been showing so far, conceding five power play goals in the first five games, only being able to keep their opponents at bay at 74% of their penalties. The Lightning will surely put them to the test, as they’ve scored seven goals with a man advantage already, converting almost 30% of their power plays.

The Oilers can’t really rely on any home advantage either, as they’ve ended up with the fewest home wins in the Western Conference in five of the last six seasons. Recent results have been no different, with Edmonton dropping four of their last five home at Rexall.

Play on: Tampa Bay Lightning
