Arizona Coyotes (19-21-3) (7th, Pacific)
8 PM MST

SB Nation Opponent: Five For Howling
With a win tonight (and a little help), the Oilers can find themselves tied for the second wild card spot. The Coyotes have had trouble scoring goals all year, can the Oilers outfox Arizona?

No Brandon Manning again tonight? Well, I’ll be dipped.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR TONIGHT
- Keep an eye out for Darnell Nurse and Adam Larsson. Both are playing on different lines, but Larsson had less than 17 minutes of ice time in Edmonton’s shootout win over Florida on Thursday night. Darnell Nurse had nearly 32 minutes of ice time, which is kind of a lot.
- Plain and simple, the Coyotes can’t score goals. They’re 29th out of 31st in the league in goal scoring, and that’s good for the Oilers. Can the top two lines for the Oilers get it done tonight?
- Cam Talbot is going for win number ten tonight. Can he put together a solid sixty minutes and help earn that W for the Oilers?
