Oilers look to keep afloat in the Pacific, need to put a stop to their four game losing streak.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- LINE BLENDER: Oilers return to a common theme with McDavid and Draisaitl paired up again. Ty Rattie hits the third line while Drake Caggiula gets some time next to 97. On defence, Darnell Nurse and Matt Benning get another twirl. Will it make a difference?
- NIEMI TIME: Neither Carey Price nor Antti Niemi has been very good this year for Montréal. Niemi’s .894 SV% in five games so far this year should have Oilers forwards licking their chops in anticipation.
- IS KOSS BOSS? Mikko Koskinen has a real chance to take a step up towards claming the number one job with a victory against Montréal tonight. Will he take that step?
