Oilers can finish their three game home stand before the break by picking up a win against the worst team in the Atlantic.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

- Mikko Koskinen starts his first game after signing his 3 year deal. He will no doubt under scrutiny for the remainder of this season.

- Alex Petrovic is back in the lineup after missing the last several games with a concussion. He will pair with Brandon Manning.

- Both Ryan Spooner and Ty Rattie passed through waivers today. Naturally, no one picked either up. But they're still here. Both players combine for 53 total games played and 11 points.
