  • Are we still doing the ‘audition’ thing? Can we audition Jesse Puljujarvi somewhere higher than the third line? Aberg goes from scratch to 2RW? Slepyshev at 4LW?
  • Scott Darling is in net for the Hurricanes tonight. Cam Talbot is in for the Oilers.
  • Connor McDavid has eleven points to go in order to hit the 100 point mark for the second consecutive season. With Scott Darling pulling a .889 SV% on the year, tonight could be hot.
  • Oscar Klefbom has been shut down for the season (shoulder). With Andrej Sekera also out with an injury, that’s an interesting D-lineup we’ve got there. Dillon Simpson was recalled from Bakersfield, but is an extra tonight. I’d expect that to change as soon as Thursday.
