LINES

Just like last game, but with more Kevin Gravel.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Tonight is the first appearance from Jonathan Quick. Quick is back from a lower body injury and will make his first start in a dozen games. Can the Oilers put him off his game early?
  • Oscar Klefbom’s goal was the only goal in Edmonton’s 1-0 OT victory against Dallas on Tuesday night. Will the same forward lineup be able to cash in tonight?
  • Oilers face off against the Kings tonight and Vegas next. They’ve got to start beating Pacific Division opponents if they want to entertain the idea of playing hockey in April. They’re five points away from third, but just five points away from last in the Pacific. Which team will show up tonight?
