Welcome back to HNIC Coast To Coast! Every Friday, Canada Sports Betting previews all of the NHL weekend action involving the seven Canadian teams. This week, we’re in for a treat, as a 32-team schedule on Saturday guarantees us a bit of action from the whole group, with an extra game on Sunday.
7:00 p.m. ET HNIC Matchup:
Edmonton Oilers @ Montreal Canadiens
The Edmonton Oilers are currently on a hot streak, marking their ninth consecutive victory on Thursday against the Red Wings. Key players, such as Connor McDavid and Zach Hyman, have stepped up their game, with McDavid providing 42 points over his last 21 games, while Hyman is approaching his career high in goals. Additionally, the goaltending has held up during this streak. The Montreal Canadiens will be a tough matchup, as they are coming off a 3-2 regulation loss to San Jose. Although some parts of the team have been producing of late, their battle to remain at .500 may falter soon enough.
7:00 p.m. ET HNIC Headliner:
Calgary Flames @ Vegas Golden Knights
The Calgary Flames are showing signs of improvement with an 8-4-2 record in the past month. Key players are beginning to elevate their game, and their matchup against the Vegas Golden Knights should provide an interesting challenge, as the Golden Knights are 4-8-0 over the past month. The season series is tight, with both teams winning a game, so the Flames are intriguing picks to come out on top.
