It's pre-season game number three for the Oilers tonight as they play host to the Winnipeg Jets at Rexall Place. For those who just can't get enough of pre-season hockey you're in luck because tonight the game will go into overtime even if the game isn't tied after regulation. Seriously.

How To Watch

Puck drop: 7:00PM MST

What To Watch For

Most of the players dressed for the Oilers tonight played in Calgary on Monday night. So if you wanted the Edmonton half of the split squad games then this is your first chance this season to see a lot of these players. If you're going to watch for something in particular it might be worth keeping an eye on the line of Yakupov/Lander/Draisaitl. I think Yakupov plays better on the right side but it'd be great if the Oielrs could find a way to get him working well on both sides of centre.

Line Combinations
