4-Unit Play. #051. Take Edmonton vs St. Louis (Wednesday, December 5, 8:05 p.m.) As per this selection on Edmonton, you gotta believe they bounce back from their latest 4-1 loss to the Stars in a big way. For what it's worth, McDavid was scratched an hour before game time with an illness, but he will be in the lineup tonight to torture a Blues team that is just absolutely riddled with injuries up and down the lineup. If we throw out last game, the Oilers have played much better of late and that's thanks in large part to the players trusting their new coach and buying into what he's preaching. Before last game, they had given up just three goals during a three-game winning streak, and we like that kind of defensive prowess in this spot, as the Blues simply can't score, so we believe the Oilers will keep them in check. The Blues are decimated with injury and with the start they've had, it will be easy for them to mentally mail it in and prepare for next year already. Remember, this is a team that has been one of the better teams in the West for the last handful of years. Now they are facing adversity and have already fired their coach, so this is new ground for them. They have subpar goaltending and playing in their first home game in a week, likely won't help either considering they are under .500 at home. The Blues are 0-5 in their last 5 Wednesday games, 0-4 in their last 4 vs a team with a losing record and just 4-11 in their last 11 when their opponent is held to under 2 goals in their previous game. The Oilers bounce back well, going 5-2 in their last 7 games playing on 1 days rest. With McDavid back in the lineup, the Blues don't have a chance.
