Don Cherry's Daily Pick: Edmonton

Oh-Canada Jan 15, 2022

Don Cherry's NHL Pick for Saturday:

The Ottawa Senators are coming off a huge upset win at the Calgary Flames. Meanwhile, Edmonton continues to struggle. But let's look closer at the matchup. The Oilers have been without some key players and now it looks like they are back in the lineup tonight.  Although I like the way the Sens have been playing lately, I see the Oilers coming up with a big game on their home ice. I'm taking the Oilers to cover the -1.5 goal puckline.

The Cherry Pick:  Edmonton Oilers -1.5 goals at +115 (puckline)
