Sauve is a rookie that has never started or played in an NHL regular season game. He could be making his first start in Canada on a HNIC broadcast.

Sauve may have some nerves and the Oilers might be able to capitalize on that.

The Avs game I watched they were trying to be really cute with the puck and did not seem willing to scrap down low for the less glamorous goals, (likely do not think they have to). So if the Oil can keep the front of the net clear, and play with some desperation in their own end, I believe they can win this one.

4-2 Oil
