Match preview and statistics
The New York Rangers may again start this match without Artemi Panarin in the starting lineup. After such a confident start this season, the Russian left winger disappoints in November. He has not scored any goals and has made only six assists this month. The impact index of the Rangers’ key player is equal to -9 in the 2022-23 season. Chris Kreider replaced Panarin in the previous game. He has scored nine goals and has made eight assists this season.
Igor Shesterkin has not shown his best play too. He has saved 91.7% of shots on target, whereas his ratio in the 2021-22 season was equal to 93.5%. The Rangers are seventh in the Eastern Conference with 24 points after 21 points. They have lost six out of 11 matches in November and have won only one match against a greater-placed rival in the conference.
In the last game against the Anaheim Ducks, Gerard Gallant’s men played aggressively but successfully finished only two out of 43 shots on target. Jaroslav Halak replaced Shesterkin and finished the match with only 86% saved shots.
A total of under 5.5 goals has played out in five of the last six matches with the Rangers’ participation. The exact total comes with the odds of 2.30 (+130; 13/10) this time.
The Edmonton Oilers will be unlucky to play one more game without Evander Kane, the main left winger on the roster. Dylan Holloway, Zach Hyman or Warren Foegele will not be able to perform as well as Kane in this position, which will make the Oilers much weaker. Despite this, the Oilers have a powerful attack provided by Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl, who are the first-best and the third-best forwards in the 2022-23 season, respectively.
The Edmonton Oilers have one of the most potent attacking lines in the league, but they are 10th in the Western Conference, which is a terrible performance for such a strong roster. The Oilers are the league's fourth-most conceding team, with an average of 3.6 GA per match.
The Edmonton Oilers have lost only one of the last six matches against the Rangers. They are priced with the odds of 1.70 (-143; 7/10) to be undefeated in the regular time.
New York Rangers vs Edmonton Oilers H2H
The New York Rangers won over the Oilers (4-1) in the most recent H2H match to break the Oilers’ streak of five victories in head-to-head games. All three stars of the match were the Rangers’ players, but only one is still on the roster. Alexis Lafreniere scored a goal and made an assist to finish that match as the second star.

Prediction and betting tips
The New York Rangers show nothing special in the 2022-23 NHL. They have 10 victories, seven losses and four draws in the season. Their attack efficiency is decreasing because Artemi Panarin is not performing his best way as a key player. Igor Shesterkin is stable and is one of the best goalies, but he is far from his peak form.
The Edmonton Oilers have an unstoppable attack, but they concede many goals due to weak defence and goaltenders. Both teams are not showing their best play. One of the Oilers’ main attackers is injured, whereas the Rangers’ attack is weak now. I believe to see a total of under 6.5 goals this time. The same total has played out in seven of the last H2H matches.
Betting prediction: Under 6.5 goals
Odds: 1.90 (-111 American; 9/10 Fractions)
