LINES

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

- Connor McDavid was held out of yesterday's skills competition with the flu. Will he be 100% tonight?

- That's a Brandon Manning sighting. It's his fourth game he's suited up for since being traded to Edmonton late in December. He'll pair with Matt Benning.

- Jesse Puljujarvi is on the fourth line. Not sure what Hitch is looking for, but I'm not sure Ty Rattle is a better option up top.
