Can the Oilers grab hold of third place in the Pacific with a win tonight?

What To Watch For From The Oilers

Look for Drake Caggiula to slip onto the fourth line in place of Matt Hendricks. Caggiula spent most of the season on the third line, but hasn’t seen the lineup since March 7th versus the Islanders. He’ll be alongside Mark Letestu and Anton Slepyshev.

What To Watch For From The Bruins

From Stanley Cup of Chowder

It will be Hart to Hart night as Brad Marchand faces Connor McDavid - both are in the conversation as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player.

Brad Marchand’s 36 goals leads the NHL. That’s not too bad.

Final Thought

The Oilers bought themselves some space with two points against the Stars. A win tonight puts them in third place, and it puts the Flames in the wild card slot. No pressure.
