Phoenix Coyotes vs Edmonton Oilers Tuesday Night NHL Betting Odds

There aren’t that many exciting NHL contests scheduled for Tuesday, December 3, 2013, which is why we are going with a game featuring the Edmonton Oilers and the Phoenix Coyotes at 9:30 PM ET. The game will be played at the Rexall Place in Edmonton, Alberta. We have chosen this game because the Oilers have so much going against them as the Coyotes come to town, which is why we will back Phoenix tonight.

Phoenix Coyotes: On a roll at home against Oilers

Phoenix has not lost the last four games played at home against Edmonton when they start goaltender Devan Dubnyk in net. Many fans were hoping to see Ilya Bryzgalov in net for Edmonton, who is the all-time winningest goalie in Phoenix Coyotes history. The Coyotes defeated Edmonton on October 26 by a score of 5-4 at home, the only time these two teams have met this year. Phoenix has 15 wins, 34 points, and sits in the fourth spot in the Pacific Division of the Western Conference.

Edmonton Oilers: Living in the basement

Edmonton enters tonight’s game with a lot of things going against them, including the fact that they have yet to record their 10th win of the season. With a 9-17-2 record, the Oilers sit in last place in the Pacific Division with just 20 points. They will start backup goalie Devan Dubnyk in net over the injured Ilya Bryzgalov, who will miss an undetermined amount of time. The Oilers recalled goalie Jason LaBarbera because of the injury to Bryzgalov.
