Edmonton Oilers (9-8-1) (5th, Pacific)
Calgary Flames (10-8-1) (3rd Pacific)
8 PM MST
Radio: 630 CHED
SB Nation Opponent: Matchsticks and Gasoline
The Oilers will play seven of the next ten games against Pacific Division opponents. They’ll face their provincial rivals in Calgary tonight. The Oilers snapped a four game losing streak with a victory against the Canadiens on Tuesday, can they keep the good times rolling tonight?
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Connor McDavid with Leon Draisaitl resulted in a combined six points on Tuesday night. If the Oilers are going to top the Flames tonight, they’ll need to get more from that line.
- Mikko Koskinen goes for his fifth win of the season. He’s trying to make a case to be the club’s number one goalie, a big win against the Flames tonight will go a long way.
- NEW FACES: Ryan Spooner will likely make his Oilers debut tonight. Spooner was acquired yesterday from the Rangers in a trade for Ryan Strome. Patrick Russell will likely make his Oiler debut tonight after being called up from Bakersfield. Can any of the new faces make a difference tonight?
