Oilers at SJ:— Jack Michaels (@EdmontonJack) January 8, 2019
Talbot starts...Yamamoto (back on the ice), Manning, Benning, & Gambardella extras.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Cam Talbot turned aside 39 shots for his first shutout of the season against Anaheim on Sunday night. He’ll get tonight’s start, looking for his ninth win of the season.
- Sure looks like Caleb Jones is on the top D pair with Adam Larsson. He picked up two assists in Edmonton’s 4-0 victory over the Ducks on Sunday night.
- The forwards are more line jumbler than I ever could have imagined at the beginning of the season. Jujhar Khaira and Zack Kassian start up top with 97, while Leon Draisaitl is on line three. Milan Lucic has somehow found himself back in the top six. Can the Oilers catch a couple more goals tonight?
