THREE THINGS TO WATCH FOR
- This is a tough month for the Oilers, and they’re treading water at 3-3. There are five more games this month, and I think it’d be just grand if they could get out at .500 or better. This would require them to win three of five remaining games, including tonight versus Pittsburgh, a game against Washington, another date with the Predators, a visit to Chicago and finish the month against Minnesota. Can they put a 2-2-1 (or better) over the next five?
- NEW TONIGHT: Kevin Gravel will make his Oilers debut at the third LD position tonight with Evan Bouchard and Cooper Marody will play alongside Ryan Strome and Milan Lucic toinight. Can Gravel and Marody make good first impressions tonight?
- Is tonight the night where the second line starts scoring goals?
