THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • I was half right about Valentin Zykov’s Oilers debut. He’s on the left side, but it’s on one of the “third” lines with Ryan Spooner and Ty Rattie. He’ll be the one wearing number 73. What does he Oilers debut look like?
  • Cam Talbot tries for his second win in as many games. Can he put together consecutive wins?
  • Oscar Klefbom logged 30:42 of ice time with a goal last game. He’s the anchor of this Oiler defence, and he’s got 3-2-5 in his last five. Does Klefbom have any more goals up his sleeve?

The Wild are tired, scoring zero goals in Calgary last night. Let’s make some magic out there.
