THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Oilers have got to get some scoring from somewhere other than Connor McDavid and his line. McDavid has been in on every Oilers goal scored this regular season so far. The second, third, and hell, the fourth line can step up and start making magic happen sooner than later. Is tonight the night?
  • For Winnipeg, Dustin Byfuglien will be out with an upper body injury. Can the Oilers take advantage while the Jets are down one of their top players?
  • Matthew Benning is back in the lineup after a difficult couple of games to begin the season. He’ll be teamed up with Jason Garrison on the third pair to start. Can Benning put a strong outing together tonight?

Score some goals out there.
