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?

LINES

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

Mikko Koskinen

Cam Talbot

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.
