Oilers emerge from the holiday break looking to snap a three game winless streak. They’ll do themselves well with a regulation win tonight against a divisional opponent.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- They’re getting the band back together. 97 and 29 are back together on the top line alongside Alex Chiasson, while the second line features Tobias Rieder, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jesse Puljujarvi. Can the top line spark some goals?
- Chris Wideman is playing only his fourth game since being dealt to the Oilers last month. He’s paired up with Caleb Jones, who is on his off-wing. That’s...probably not ideal.
- Mikko Koskinen looks to add to his win total, a number that currently sits at eleven. He’s sporting a still lovely .925 SV%, can he increase that number with a win tonight?
Oilers need to beat the Canucks. It is written.
