The new Stanley Cup favorite isn’t leading its division or even in second place. In fact, this team is tied for the 10th-most points in the NHL. It didn’t even have a winning record a month ago.
Yet, the Oilers find themselves atop the Stanley Cup 🏆 odds board for the first time all season after a +850 to +700 move last night to pass the Avalanche at +800.
No team is currently playing better hockey than Edmonton and there haven’t been many teams that have reached this level historically.
After dispatching the Blackhawks 3-0 on Thursday night, the Oilers became the fifth NHL team to win 15 straight games 🤯. They are two shy of tying the longest winning streak in NHL history, which belongs to the 1992-93 Penguins.
