When will the Edmonton Oilers lose?!? They're riding the wave of a 16-game winning streak, taking down all their competitors. Some say the Vegas Golden Knights will be the team to do the deed, specifically with William Karlsson slated to come back. Despite their recent woes, it could be Los Angeles on Saturday, February 10. It could be Jake Oettinger and the Dallas Stars on February 17.

Once again, the Oilers bring their patented power play into the fold (ranked fourth in the NHL with 27.1). Plus, Zach Hyman (30 goals, 17 assists) has been a pleasant surprise for Edmonton. If the center continues to impress, the weight of carrying the Oilers will be lifted off the shoulders of Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl.
