The lines get jumbled as the Oilers look to put the skids on a four game losing streak.
Can they stop San Jose?
LINES (as of yesterday’s practice)
Not sure about those last two D pairs. We’ll see shortly.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Oh goody, another line jumbler. This time, it looks like Leon’s on the left side of Connor McDavid and Ty Rattie is on the right side. Unclear if Kailer Yamamoto will be in this afternoon, so keep your eyes open. Can Ty Rattie seize another chance with the heavy hitters?
- Cam Talbot will likely get the start this afternoon after Mikko Koskinen had a rocky start against Vancouver. Can Talbot pick up the pieces?
- The Oilers need to pick up a W today to stop the bleeding. Winless in their last four, they’ve got to pick up a couple of points versus a divisional opponent if they’d like to keep pace in the playoff hunt.
Let’s all have some fun out there.
