Edmonton Oilers vs Vegas Golden Knights Predictions 5/12/2023


The Vegas Golden Knights have relied heavily on their offense to score 13 goals so far in this series, but they are looking to bounce back after only scoring one goal in Game Four.


While Jack Eichel and Ivan Barbashev have been the standout performers, with five goals and three assists between them, the rest of the offense has also stepped up to contribute.


Mark Stone, Nicolas Roy, and Chandler Stephenson have combined for four goals and four assists, while defenseman Zach Whitecloud has chipped in with a goal and two assists.


Despite the impressive offensive output, the Golden Knights’ defense has struggled in the series, allowing 14 goals.


Shea Theodore, Alec Martinez, and Brayden McNabb have led the top two defensive pairings, but the rest of the unit has struggled to contain the Oilers’ attack.


As a result, the Oilers have been able to find plenty of open shots on goal.


The one bright spot for the Golden Knights has been the play of their goaltender, Adin Hill, who has saved 57 of the 61 shots he has faced while filling in for the injured Laurent Brossoit.


  • The total remained UNDER in 4 of Vegas’ last 5 games.
  • The Vegas Golden Knights are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games.
  • The Golden Knights are 15-5 SU in their last 20 games at home.
