  • How are the Oilers going to perform after the break? How are the Jets going to perform after the break? How is every team going to perform after the break? The Oilers are in Winnipeg tonight looking for their fifth win in a row, and they’ll look to do it with as little rust as possible after the holiday break.
  • The Jets are pretty damn good at scoring goals, and the Oilers will need to think of some ways to stop the (tied for) fourth ranked offence from putting up their 3+ goals per game. A good way to start is to keep off the penalty kill. With the club still missing Oscar Klefbom for tonight’s game, can they make it happen?
  • Can Connor McDavid never block a shot again? That’d be great. Thanks.
