Tonight's Storyline

With players being cut on an almost daily basis, rosters change quickly during the preseason. But the Oilers roster will be different tonight for an entirely different reason. With Nail Yakupov now a member of the St. Louis Blues and Kris Russell the newest member of the Oilers blue line the team looks very different today when compared to what we would have seen at this time tomorrow. Do these moves make the team better? Will they be enough to give the Oilers a shot at making the playoffs? Only time will tell.
