Oilers hit the road in Detroit. Can they get the upper hand on a club with some serious injury issues?
THREE THINGS TO WATCH
- Lines remain the same for this evening’s contest, which means that Drake Caggiula gets the top right spot once again. Maybe there’s two more goals in him tonight?
- Second game in a row for Mikko Koskinen, who had a 40 save performance against the Blackhawks on Thursday. Can he turn in another solid performance en route to an Oilers win?
- The Red Wings get Danny DeKeyser back from a hand injury tonight, but they’ve still got a handful of players out due to injury including Thomas Vanek, Jonathan Ericsson, Andreas Athanasiou and Frans Nielsen. The Oilers need to exploit the holes in Detroit’s lineup early and often.
