Oilers are on the road to take on the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets have lost their last three in a row, and the Oilers are winners of their last two. Mike Smith is in the net for the Oilers tonight. Let’s take a peak at the lines.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • A little surprised not to see either William Lagesson in for Brandon Manning. Even more surprised not to see Sam Gagner in the lineup, as the bottom six has been a little deficient in secondary scoring this season. Can the Oilers big guns keep the ball rolling?
  • Mike Smith gets the nod tonight after two great games by Mikko Koskinen. Can he pick up where Koskinen left off?
  • Winnipeg’s defence crew is...well, somewhat lacking. They’re down a couple of defencemen from last year, they’ve got a top paring of Josh Morrissey and...Tucker Poolman. Can the Oilers find a favourable matchup and take advantage of the Jets’ D?

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
