Erratic Oilers visit streaking Wild

(TSX / STATS) -- SAINT PAUL, Minn. -- If the recent "feast or famine" pattern continues, the Edmonton Oilers are due for an offensive outburst when they visit the Minnesota Wild on Saturday afternoon.

The Oilers are 2-2-0 in their last four games, having scored six, zero, seven and zero goals in that stretch. So the laws of probability say they are liable to put a touchdown on the scoreboard at Xcel Energy Center.

Edmonton (13-17-2) comes to Minnesota after shooting the lights out on Thursday at home versus the Nashville Predators and having nothing to show for it in a 4-0 loss. That defeat came just a few days after they put 45 shots on the Toronto Maple Leafs' net and were blanked 1-0.
