Schule's NHL BEAST of the EAST - *EARLY START*
(NHL) Edmonton vs. Boston, 11/06/2014 2:00 PM, Score: 2 - 5
Money Line: -200.00 Boston (Home)
Result: Win
This is a 6* play on the Boston Bruins.

This is going to be a tough road trip for the Oilers, already losing in Philly by a score of 4-1 Tuesday, they play their second game of this six game trip out East tonight in Boston. Leading scorer Taylor Hall is sideline by injury, and team captain Andrew Ference is still serving a suspension.

The Bruins have won three straight, and they could get a boost as David Krejci is expected to return to the lineup tonight. They haven't had much trouble with the Oilers in recent seasons, winning 12 straight, and seven in a row at home versus Edmonton.

The Oilers have gone ice cold on the power-play, failing to convert on their last 15 chances. It's going to be difficult to put an end to that slump against Tuukka Rask, who has won four of his last five starts while registering a .930 save percentage.

The Oilers are still winless on the road, with a record of 0-3-1, and they had the worst road record in Western Conference last season (13-22-6)

Take BOS.
