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.

Colby Cave was waived to make room for Josh Archibald

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.
