The Oilers can make it four wins in a row if they can outfox the Devils in New Jersey tonight. Let’s take a look at those lines.

Same lineup as Tuesday.


  • MIKKO’S MISSION, VOL II: Mikko Koskinen had a fairly successful time in New York on Tuesday. Koskinen’s debut saw him turn aside 27 of 29 Islanders shots en route to a win, can he do it again tonight in New Jersey?
  • JAMES’ GANG: James Neal is on fire right now. He can tie his 2018-19 goal total with one more tonight. That’s 7, in case you were wondering.
  • ONE IS THE LONELIEST NUMBER: The New Jersey Devils are the only club that Connor McDavid has not yet scored a goal against. Maybe that changes tonight?

The Oilers have a pretty good opportunity to go 4-0 tonight. The Devils are on the tail end of a back-to-back after getting shutout in Philadelphia last night. Mackenzie Blackwood will be starting in goal for the Devils, who have scored six goals in three games this season.

Make it happen out there.
