Ken Hitchcock began his tenure with the Edmonton Oilers by sparking his new team with a comeback Ottawa Senators Hoodies Authentic , that led to an overtime victory.Hitchcock wasted no time making an impact to this team. He was hired on the same day the Oilers had a match-up against the San Jose Sharks. The only pre-game planning he was able to do was in his meetings with the assistant coaches before the game.There wasn't even time for Hitchcock to have a morning skate with his new team, because he was busy flying to San Jose to make it in time for the game. It clearly showed that the Oilers weren't prepared for this game, because they were scored on 45 seconds into the game.advertisingThe new man behind the bench for the @EdmontonOilers is no stranger to winning. pic.twitter.com/QEKU3rWyZP— NHL on NBC (@NHLonNBCSports) November 20, 2018RELATED:聽Oilers Fire Todd McLellan And Hire Ken HitchcockHowever, midway through the second period the Oilers started to look like they were buying into what Hitchcock was saying. They began starting to defend a lot better than what they're accustomed to.In doing so, the Oilers were able to shutdown the Sharks in the third period, and were able to tie the game and force it into overtime. It was then a bouncing puck deflected off of Leon Draisaitl to win the game for the Oilers, and give Hitchcock a win in his Oilers' debut.Hitchcock spoke to the media after the game Ottawa Senators Hats Authentic , and talked about how he needed about four shifts to get an understanding of how the Oilers' system works. He said after that point he then began starting to adjust the lines.advertisingThe new Oilers head coach also spoke about how hard it was to remember his new players names during the game. He came up with many nicknames for each of the players on the team. Which ultimately helped in a way, because finally the Oilers looked like a complete team on the ice. The Hockey NewsConnor McDavid reached a new milestone in Hitchcock's debut. McDavid became the fourth active player to score 100 goals before his 22nd birthday. He has carried the Oilers offensively all season long.If the Oilers are going to climb out of this hole they have put themselves in, they will need McDavid to continue producing at the rate that he is now. They will also need Hitchcock to groom their defense to play better, in order to help Cam Talbot get back to the way he use to be playing.advertisingMid-season coaching changes has worked recently in the past. There's no reason for this one with the Oilers not to work as well. Hitchcock is exactly the type of coach the Oilers needed. He is a defensive minded coach, and he is also very capable of coming in right away and sparking a team.We all saw how he can spark a team, like how he did it in his debut against the Sharks. For saying the Oilers have had a very bad stretch recently, they're currently only three points out of the second wild card spot in the Western Conference.Which means if the Oilers can find sustained success with Hitchcock, it won't be that hard for this team to find themselves back into a playoff spot.advertisingRELATED:聽Ottawa Senators and Matt Duchene Are Making Progress In Contract Talks Frederick Breedon/Getty ImagesThe Edmonton Oilers (8-5-1) will attempt to break a six-game series road losing streak to the Tampa Bay Lightning (10-3-1) on Tuesday when they visit them as large road underdogs at sportsbooks. Edmonton has not won at Tampa Bay since 2009 Custom Ottawa Senators Jerseys , according to the OddsShark NHL Database, with only one victory there dating back to late 2002. NHL betting line: The Lightning opened as -195 favorites (wager $195 to win $100); the total is at six goals, according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark. (Line updates and matchup report)NHL betting pick, via OddsShark computer: 3.6-2.3, Oilers (NHL picks on every game)Check out the OddsShark podcast on iTunes or Spotify or at OddsShark.libsyn.com for more odds information, betting picks and a breakdown of this week's top sports betting news.Why the Oilers can pay on the NHL linesThe Oilers are obviously a much better team now than they were during the majority of their series road skid, going 10 years without making the postseason before they finally qualified for the playoffs again two seasons ago.Led by star Connor McDavid (22 points on 10 goals and 12 assists), they have won five of seven to move within two points of the Pacific Division lead even though they have played one less game than the two teams ahead of them in the standings www.officialflyersproshop.com , the Calgary Flames and Vancouver Canucks. Edmonton is 5-3 on the road too despite losing to the Washington Capitals on Monday. Why the Lightning can pay on the NHL linesThe Lightning are coming off a two-game road sweep of the Montreal Canadiens and Ottawa Senators in Canada over the weekend following a disappointing 4-1 home loss to the Nashville Predators in their last game at Amalie Arena on ThursdayThey have still won six of their last eight overall to vault to the top of the Atlantic Division again and will begin a three-game homestand versus the Oilers, who have dropped three of four in the second game of a back-to-back situation. One of those took place on March 18 at Tampa Bay, with Edmonton falling 3-1 after beating the Florida Panthers a day earlier.Smart betting pickWhile unbeaten backup goaltender Mikko Koskinen (3-0) will likely get the call for the Oilers in this spot, his numbers have been padded by a 40-save shutout of the Chicago Blackhawks. Koskinen has surrendered three goals in two of his other three wins filling in for regular goalie Cam Talbot with 13 goals of offensive support overall.That said, the Lightning are the better team and deserve to be a strong home favorite. Taking the puckline is the best value play here though considering four of the last five home wins for Tampa against Edmonton have been decided by two goals or more.NHL betting trendsEdmonton is 2-5 in its last seven games when playing Tampa Bay.Edmonton is 0-5 in its last five games when playing on the road against Tampa Bay.Tampa Bay is 6-2 in its last eight games.All NHL odds and betting trends according to Bleacher Report's official odds partner, OddsShark.
