After taking the Penguins to OT, the Oilers look to get back in the win column for two points.

EDMONTON

Patrick Maroon - Connor McDavid - Leon Draisaitl

Milan Lucic - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Mark Letestu

Drake Caggiula - Ryan Strome - Zack Kassian

Jussi Jokinen - Jujhar Khaira - Anton Slepyshev

FOR THE OILERS

  • Score some goals already. Leon Draisaitl is on the top line to rescue us all.
  • No Kailer Yamamoto in the lineup. Yamamoto has played seven games in his young career, and has three points (0-3-3).
  • HELLO, DEPTH? Milan Lucic - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and M...ark Letestu? Sure.

FOR DALLAS

  • Stars are looking to rebound after a 5-3 loss to the Avalanche on Tuesday.
  • Old friend Tyler Pitlick will visit Edmonton for the first time as a Dallas Star since being acquired via free agency this offseason. Pitlick is 2-2-4 in his first nine games this season.
  • Ben Bishop is expected to go for the Stars. Bishop has a tidy .920 SV% in eight games to start this young season.
