Edmonton Oilers Team News
It was a statement win by the Edmonton Oilers in game 2 in enemy territory, which had the Vegas Golden Knights lose home-ice advantage and also shifted the momentum to the Oilers side.
After they couldn´t find a way to stop the high-octane offense of the Vegas Knights in game 1 and gave up six goals, the Oilers made defensive adjustments and weathered the storm in game 2 in Las Vegas.
Even though the Oilers are capable of outscoring any opposition with their talented offense, game 2 5:1 statement win stems from the defensive end, which will surely remain their main focus tonight.
Vegas Golden Knights Team News
We expect the Oilers to continue to exploit their strong defensive output from game 2, while the Vegas Knights will also have to put more emphasis on defense. Giving up a total of nine goals in two games will not get them the results they want in a long ang grueling playoff series, so we are expecting the away team to counter the Oilers and their rowdy fanbase with a strong defensive showing.
Majority of the predictions you can find on the internet are predicting another high-scoring affair and an Oilers win, but we beg to differ. This game 3 should be different than the previous two encounters because it will give one of the teams the critical edge in this playoff series, so expect the Knights to tighten up on the defensive end.
Injuries and suspensions

Edmonton Oilers vs Vegas Golden Knights Prediction
The two games played so far produced plenty of fireworks, goals and chances. Many of the websites are suggesting and urging the bettors to bet on Total Overs, but as we go deeper into the playoffs, we think that the scoring rhythm of this series will settle down and drop.
Today´s game 3 is pivotal since the Knights lost home ice advantage, so this time we are expecting a low-scoring affair and opted for the Total Under 6.5.
