A CHANCE TO GO ABOVE .500?
The Oilers are on a two game winning streak.
After two lacklustre performances to open the season, the Oilers limped into a win on Saturday and had a command performance in their 5-4 comeback to secure an overtime victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night. Now at home, the Oilers can extend that win streak to three in a row if they can handle a Bruins team that did the handling a week ago.

THREE THINGS TO WATCH FOR
- LINE CHANGES: New lines, guys and gals. Jesse Puljujarvi on line two. Tobias Rieder on line two. Milan Lucic on line three. Kailer Yamamoto on line three. Let’s jump start the rest of the team and start scoring some goals.
- This is Matt Benning’s first game with the Oilers lined up at LHD. Benning will man the third pair with Evan Bouchard. Jason Garrison gets the scratch.
- TIRED B’S - Bruins dropped a 5-2 contest in Calgary last night. Oilers need to exploit a tired Boston squad early and often.
Can the Oilers do three in a row?
