*12 is newly acquired Colby Cave

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Colby Cave is set to debut between Jujhar Khaira and Jesse Puljujarvi. I think that’s the third line? I get all my lines messed up since The Identity Line was broken up. Cave’s been an Oiler for about 30 hours, what can he do between 16 and 98?
  • Milan Lucic scored two goals against Buffalo on Monday night. Jingle his pockets, see if he’s got any more in there. Ditto Zack Kassian.
  • That’s Kailer Yamamoto back on line two. Looks like Hitch would rather him in the lineup instead of Ty Rattie. Yamamoto has two points in thirteen games so far on the season, can he step right in and contribute?

Oilers have got to handle Vancouver tonight. Can they make it happen?
