Arizona has the 29th best offence in the league and the Oilers need to snap their six game losing streak. Can we make it work here?
Leon Draisaitl - Connor McDavid - Zack Kassian
Milan Lucic - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Jesse Puljujarvi
Tobias Rieder - Jujhar Khaira - Ryan Spooner
Joseph Gambardella - Kyle Brodziak - Ty Rattie
Darnell Nurse - Alex Petrovic
Caleb Jones - Adam Larsson
Brandon Manning - Matt Benning
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Yes, that’s Zack Kassian on the top line. Yes, Milan Lucic is back in the top six
- Alex Petrovic is again on the first pair. He played 20:21 in his first game as an Oiler, nearly three more minutes than he did while in Florida. Will his time on ice increase tonight?
- Arizona owns the 29th ranked offence in the NHL, so this really is a night that the Oilers might only need a couple of goals to seal the deal. Can they put this ugly winless streak behind them for good?
Let’s all have fun out there.
