8 PM

Rogers Place

  • Oscar Klefbom will be out for ‘the next two games’ after undergoing a ‘minor procedure’. Just shut him down already. I can guarantee you that things are going to get hot over here if 77 has been playing the entire season with a bum limb.
  • Connor McDavid has 81 points this season, and he’s got tonight plus 14 more games to get 19 more. Just 19 more points, and he’ll reach 100 in his second consecutive season.
  • Eric Staal is hitting at a point per game for the Wild (37-31-68 in 68 games).
  • Oilers will want to avoid going on the PK tonight, Minnesota’s 6thranked power play is clicking at 21.7%.
  • Former Oiler™ Devan Dubnyk will start in net for Minnesota, while Cam Talbot will get the nod for Edmonton.
  • A win tonight gets the Oilers to 30 wins. Let’s have fun out there.
