The Edmonton Oilers did not win their sixth game of the season. In a strange turn of events, it was the Chicago Blackhawks who emerged victorious by a 3-1 margin. The Oilers look to get things back on track tonight with a visit from the Flyers. Can they get back in the win column tonight?


  • The Flyers are on the tail end of a back-to-back after suffering a 3-1 loss to the Flames. The Oilers have fresh legs, can they take advantage of a Flyers club playing two games in two days?
  • Alex Chiasson has gotten a promotion after Joakim Nygard will be out 2-4 weeks with an injury. Can he find some of the scoring touch that put him over 20 goals in 2018-19?
  • Mikko Koskinen gets the start tonight. Can he keep the Oilers in the game tonight?
