Oilers on the tail end of a back-to-back looking to get back into the win column.

Well, that makes the lineup card easy. Everybody’s in. For now, at least.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • What we do know? Cam Talbot is set to get the start for the Oilers in net. Talbot’s last outing was a 3-2 loss to the Coyotes eight days ago. Talbot is 2-3 in his last five.
  • Milan Lucic has four goals in eight games so far in the 2019 calendar year. That’s not too bad. Is he finally getting some normalcy to his game?
  • Oilers have tonight’s game and a game against Detroit before hitting the All-Star Break. With St. Louis, Arizona, Vancouver and Anaheim all vying for two wild card spots, can the Oilers keep pace in the Western Conference with a win tonight?
