Oilers at Kings - stats preview and prediction

This will be a win for the Oilers!

Reasons:

Coaching - just the type of game where Hitchcock can squeeze a win out of the Oilers.

Record - despite a mixed season for the Oilers so far they compare favourably to the struggling Kings who look ready for a rebuild.

Rest - the Kings played last night whilst the Oilers were resting.

Rebound - the tough loss in the last few minutes against the Ducks will make the Oilers hungry for a better outcome.

The stats - lots of Orange always a good sign!
