Leon Draisaitl To Score a Goal (+160)

With their backs against the wall, the Edmonton Oilers need their best players to step up.

The Florida Panthers hold a commanding 3-0 lead in the Stanely Cup Final and will look to close things out on Saturday night.

If the Oilers want to stave off elimination for one more game, they're going to need more out of Leon Draisaitl.

Over the first three games of the series, Draisaitl has no points and nine shots on goal. This is a large departure for a player who has 28 points and 66 shots on goal throughout 21 games in the playoffs.

Of those 28 points, 10 of them are goals, which are the second-most in the playoffs this season. They simply need their best players to show up when it's a do-or-die game.

With his role on the second forward line and the first power-play unit, Draisaitl will see plenty of ice time in an elimination game and should strive for more offensive chances.
