Can the Blues upset the Oilers? Get our expert preview, analysis, and prediction for the St. Louis Blues at Edmonton Oilers game.

The St. Louis Blues, sitting just outside to a wild card spot, face a daunting task tonight as they visit the high-flying Edmonton Oilers. Edmonton recently came off a 16-game winning streak and looks like a legitimate contender. The Blues, on the other hand, have been inconsistent all season but are just a few points out of the wild card race. Can they pull off an upset in Edmonton?

Blues Look to Slow Down McDavid and Draisaitl

The Oilers boast the league’s top-tier scorers in Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl. McDavid sits third in the NHL in both points (91) and first in assists (70). Draisaitl isn’t far behind with 93 points, including 29 goals. The Blues will need a Herculean defensive effort to contain this dynamic duo. Look for them to deploy a heavy dose of Jordan Binnington in net and a checking line centered by Brayden Schenn to shadow Edmonton’s superstars.

Oilers Hoping to Build Momentum

The Oilers are coming off a decisive win over the LA Kings fueled by their powerplay and a stellar performance from Stuart Skinner in goal. They’ll look to carry that momentum into tonight’s matchup against the Blues. Edmonton’s Mattias Ekholm bolsters their defense, which has improved since the start of the season.


While the Blues have the potential to grind out wins, the Oilers’ firepower on home ice will likely be too much to overcome. Expect a high-scoring affair.
