Looking to Sweep
The other night the Oilers slipped behind Calgary and were trailing for most of the game. If it wasn’t for the heroics of Braden Christoffer and a penalty shot for Leon Draisaitl the game could’ve been lost. Luckily for the good guys they came out on top and are now looking to sweep the tournament against the winless Jets.
After the win on Saturday the Oilers have decided to rest some players. Both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are not expected to suit up for the final game leaving the responsibility to win directly on the shoulders of "non-hyped" forwards.
It also appears that Eetu Laurikainen will get the start in net today. As for the rest of the lineup not much else has been mentioned.

The Jets have had a rough tournament losing to both Vancouver and Calgary. They have only been able to muster 2 goals all tournament and only have 4 players with points. Expect Nic Petan and Nikolaj Ehlers in the lineup today especially if the Jets want to save face in this tournament. Beyond that the Jets, like the Oilers, have been quiet about their lineup.
