Oilers are in Vancouver to take on a Canucks club playing their second in two days. Can a boatload of goals follow the Oilers into Rogers Arena?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Oilers are going with the exact same lineup that took care of the Flyers on Friday night. I’m especially looking at the defence, which held together well enough to yield just one goal on Thursday night. Can the same six keep Vancouver from putting the puck in the net?
  • Speaking of goals against, Mikko Koskinen looks for his twelfth win of the year. Koskinen has been lights out so far with a .930 SV% on the year. Can he roll out another win?
  • Alex Chiasson scored again on Thursday night. He’s got three goals in his last five games, and he’s cooking with a 30.4 shooting percentage on the season. Can he keep his improbable streak up with another one tonight?
