NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Edmonton Oilers
Walter Tychnowicz-USA TODAY Sports

Midweek hotlinks, served fresh and hot.

  • The Oilers got Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl back together for last night’s game versus the Canadiens. Result? A 6-2 win for the Oilers, where McDavid and Draisaitl each had three point nights. Think they’ll be back together next game? Patrick’s got your game review.
  • The Oilers do not have enough scoring wingers, writes The Athletic’s Jonathan Willis. Can the Oilers win a trade to find one? (paywall)
  • “None of our D-men are exceptional passers”, said Peter Chiarelli on Oilers Now a few days ago. If there’s a change at the GM position anytime this year, that’s a good clip to hang on to. (The Oilers Rig)
  • Milan Lucic has cratered at 5 on 5 for Edmonton. What can be done? (Christian Pagnini / The Oilers Rig)

Oilers’ next game is on Saturday in Calgary, which will no doubt be a big deal.

Have a great Wednesday.
