EDM Vs NYR – Hot Take

The Edmonton Oilers will try to improve to 5-0-0 for the first time since 1985-86 when they play the New York Rangers at Madison Square Garden.  They have won their first four games in a season for the first time since 2008-09, coming from behind in each game.  No team has come from behind to win five straight games to start an NHL season. 

Oilers forward James Neal is on FIRE!  He has scored seven goals through four games, matching his total in 63 games with the Calgary Flames last season.

The New York Rangers haven’t played since defeating the Ottawa Senators 4-1 at Canadian Tire Centre on Oct. 5. They haven’t won three in a row to start a season since 2015-16.  Center Mika Zibanejad (four goals, four assists) is the second player in team history to have eight points in the first two games of a season, joining Rod Gilbert, who had eight assists in the first two games of the 1976-77 season.
