Capitals @ Oilers Lines and Pairings

The Oilers look to make it three in a row with a victory at home over the Capitals.


After a hideous eight game stretch, the Oilers have strung two wins together despite injuries to both Taylor Hall and Ryan Smyth. The Capitals have a two game win streak of their own.

Two will enter. Only one will emerge victorious. And if Edmonton isn't victorious, at least emerge without any additional injuries. Please?

Check back throughout the day for updated lines and pairings, as we'll post them as they become available.

Nail Yakupov - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jordan Eberle
