Winnipeg Jets vs Edmonton Oilers Betting Line October 1st, 2013

Published on October 1st, 2013 7:40 pm EST

Hockey fans have been waiting for this moment for a couple of years now - later tonight, the puck will finally drop on a full season of hockey. No labour deals to be discussed, no back and forths between the owners and the NHLPA - just a full season of hockey.

One of the games that will be kicking off this year's schedule is Winnipeg vs Edmonton. The game, which will be broadcast nationally in Canada, will be getting underway at 8:05 pm local time on Tuesday evening.

The Edmonton Oilers are another year older, and there is great hope in Edmonton that this will be the year for the "young guns" to take the next step. A new coach has heightened expectations - can the Oilers make the playoffs this season? Will it be their breakthrough year?

The Winnipeg Jets, on the other hand, are also looking to take that next step. The Jets came tantalizingly close to the playoffs last year, and they are hoping to make it in this year.
