The Oilers are on their second three game winning streak of the season. Tonight, they’ll face a Minnesota club who got tore up on the ice in Vancouver last night. Can the Oilers win their seventh game in October?
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS? The Oilers are getting a backup netminder tonight as Alex Stalock is going to go for the Wild. Stalock has appeared in two games so far with a .879 SV%. Wild are playing their second game in two nights. Can the Oilers take advantage of a tired team?
- Jesse Puljujarvi is now sitting out his fourth consecutive game. Let’s take a quick look at the depth on the right wing position. You’re telling me that you can’t find a spot on the right w-ing for 98 when your winger depth consists of Yamamoto / Chiasson / Caggiula and Kassian?
- Tobias Rieder has been a fun acquisition. Playing alongside fellow countryman Leon Draisaitl, he’s currently fifth on the team in scoring with five points, all assists. Can the second line click for a few goals tonight?
