The National Hockey League regular season kicks off this week, and two of Canada’s teams will face each other on opening night. The Vancouver Canucks will travel to face their close rivals, the Edmonton Oilers, in the nightcap of a first-night slate of four games. The two teams would classify their 2018-2019 seasons in dramatically different terms, as the Canucks had to be somewhat pleased with their 81 points from last season, given they are in the midst of a multi-season rebuilding process. The Oilers, on the other hand, must have been disappointed with their 79 points from a season ago, especially since they have so much firepower in their lineup. Let’s take a closer look at this opening-night matchup between these two Canadian teams from a betting perspective.
