THE OILERS ARE in Boston this evening. They’re looking for their first win of the season after dropping their season-opener by a 5-2 score. The Bruins? They’re winners of two in a row after dropping their season opener to Washington by a touchdown. Who will emerge victorious tonight? Only one way to find out.

LINES

THREE THINGS TO WATCH FOR

  • The Oilers have got to stop Boston’s top line of Brad Marchand, David Pastrnak and Patrice Bergeron. These three players have combined for 16 points over their last two games.
  • Drake Caggiula is in the lineup tonight for the Oilers. Kyle Brodziak will sit. Caggiula will skate with Ryan Strome and Jesse Puljujarvi. Jujhar Khaira will team with Tobias Rieder and Zack Kassian.
  • Can Cam Talbot shut the door for his first win of the season? Talbot yielded four goals in his first start of the season. The Devils added an empty netter. The Oilers will need Talbot to shut the door in order to earn the club’s first win of the year.
