Stephen Nover Free Wednesday NHL Play

Flames at Oilers Over 5 1/2 minus $1.05

The Oilers enter the season coming off an eight-game exhibition slate in which they averaged more than four goals per game. Connor McDavid and Leon Draiasitl are going to get their points versus any foe. But the Oilers were especially rough on the Flames last season averaging five goals a game in sweeping all four matchups.

Calgary ranked 16th in goal scored last season. The Flames have enough offense to take advantage of Edmonton missing key defenseman Andrej Sekera, who is out following knee surgery. Goalie Cam Talbot wasn’t that sharp during exhibition season giving up 11 goals on 79 shots.
