The Carolina Hurricanes and the Edmonton Oilers will both be trying to pick up a win on Tuesday when they battle at Rogers Place.

ABOUT THE HURRICANES (1-1-1): While Carolina’s offense has been stuck in neutral, offseason acquisition Scott Darling has been clicking on all cylinders by turning aside 44 of 48 shots in the last two games. The 28-year-old has been in the crease in all three games for the Hurricanes as opposed to franchise goaltender Cam Ward, who has backstopped the team for the majority of 12 seasons. “He gives us a chance every night,” coach Bill Peters of Darling. “… It’s a race to three (goals) in the National Hockey League. You’ve gotta be able to get to three to get a point, if not two points.”

ABOUT THE OILERS (1-3-0): With Draisaitl now on injured reserve with an eye issue and concussion-like symptoms, rookie Kailer Yamamoto made the most of his promotion to the first line by notching a secondary assist for his first career NHL point in Saturday’s 6-1 loss to Ottawa. “I felt a lot more comfortable out there,” said the 19-year-old Yamamoto, who had a team-high six shots in 18:38 of ice time. “Playing with McDavid again, it opened my eyes. He’s an unbelievable player. I’ve got to keep up with him.” McDavid recorded his second hat trick in the opener and has notched an assist in back-to-back games ahead of Tuesday’s tilt versus Carolina, against which he scored in his last meeting – a 2-1 setback on Feb. 3.

Oddsmakers opened the Oilers as -164-moneyline favorites versus the Hurricanes, while the game’s total opened at 5.5.

The Edmonton Oilers were the ultra-trendy pick to reach the Stanley Cup this season with reigning Hart Trophy recipient Connor McDavid and fellow forward Leon Draisaitl leading the way. After winning their opener, the Oilers look to avert dropping their fourth consecutive contest on Tuesday when they conclude their three-game homestand against the Carolina Hurricanes.

“We just have to lighten up a bit,” forward Patrick Maroon of the club, which has been outscored 14-5 during its losing skid. “We just have to know that we still have 78 more games left. We can’t sit here and feel sorry for ourselves.” Workhorse goaltender Cam Talbot has been gashed for 12 goals on 73 shots in his last three games, but owns a 4-1-0 mark with two shutouts, a 1.18 goals-against average and .955 save percentage in five career encounters with Carolina. That’s not comforting news for the Hurricanes, who have been limited to just one goal by Jeff Skinner in back-to-back losses to Columbus and Winnipeg, respectively. “I think we just need to be more hungry. We have opportunities,” the 25-year-old Skinner said. “More hunger, more desperation. It’s disappointing when that’s the reason because that’s in your control. We need more hunger and more desperation for sure.”

Edmonton lost its last outing, a 6-1 result against the Senators on October 14. Bettors who backed the Senators at +167 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (7) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

In their last action, Carolina was a 2-1 loser on the road against the Jets. Bettors on Winnipeg at -115 on the moneyline collected their winnings from that game, while the total score (3) sent UNDER bettors home happy as well.
