New, comments

Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports that Petr Mrazek will start in goal tonight:

Mrazek is slated to get his third start tonight at Edmonton, because Jonas Gustavsson was put on short-term injured reserve Friday after suffering a kink in his neck.

and

Mrazek, 21, made two appearances with the Wings last season, stealing the show during his debut in St. Louis. He went 1-1 with Detroit, with a 2.02 GAA and .922 save percentage.

Chappy tweeted his numbers from this year - Mrazek is off to a slow start:

Meaning that the Oilers will face a goaltender off to a start slower than their own.  Devan Dubnyk currently sits a .878, Jason Labarbera at .857 and Richard Bachman .932, though he's coming off of a loss against Toronto in which he gave up 4 goals and made just 22 saves.
