The Oilers are coming off of a decisive win over the New Jersey Devils and are looking to get consecutive wins for the first time this season. Connor McDavid had 3 points while Ryan Nugent-Hopkins continued to be a driver on the second line. It was a really good game on Friday and we’re expecting more of the same.

The Red Wings come to Edmonton with just one regulation win in their past nine games. After starting the season 4-1 through their first five they’ve struggled badly since. Fair to say both teams really need these points.

For Edmonton:

I wouldn’t expect to much of a lineup change after a win against New Jersey. That gives us:

Patrick Maroon - Connor McDavid - Leon Draisaitl

Milan Lucic - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Anton Slepyshev

Drake Caggiula - Ryan Strome - Jussi Jokinen

IIro Pakarinen - Mark Letestu - Zack Kassian

Darnell Nurse - Adam Larsson

Oscar Klefbom - Matt Benning

Kris Russell - Eric Gryba

Cam Talbot

Laurent Brossoit

Lets get a a win here and get some momentum going for the season!
