Oilers look to be going with what they went with in Toronto save for a slight change on the fourth line. Anton Slepyshev is back in the lineup with Mark Letestu and Zack Kassian on the fourth line tonight as the Oilers will face off against the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Slepyshev had been held out of the lineup since November 30th against Toronto. He’ll replace Drake Caggiula. Caggiula has one point in his last five games, an assist in Calgary back on December 2nd.


Laurent Brossoit will get the start for the Oilers tonight in goal. Brossoit’s last game would probably have been declared a success if the Oilers could have scored a few more than zero goals. He’ll face off tonight against Sergei Bobrovski who is killing it for the Blue Jackets. Bobrovsky’s .930 season SV% puts him at third among goalies with 20+ games on the season.
