The Oilers have the chance to open the 2019-20 season at 5-0-0 with a win today. It’s an early game, and we’re on our fourth cup of coffee. Let’s get at it.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- SPECIAL TEAMS: The Oilers are 4-0-0, and there’s a few contributing factors to that. One of them is the 40% success rate that the power play is clicking at. Can the Oilers keep taking advantage of the extra-man opportunities given to them?
- NEAL’S DEAL: James Neal is still hot as the sun. He’s got 7 goals in his first four games of the season, does the streak continue today?
- TIME IS ON MY SIDE?: The Rangers haven’t played a game in seven days. Seriously, seven days. Last time they played a regular season game was on the fifth of October, a 4-1 win in Ottawa.
Oilers have an opportunity to go 5-0 with a victory in NYC today against a team that hasn’t played in a week. Make it happen out there.
