Oilers look to get back into the win column against a Detroit club that’s winless in eight straight (0-7-1).

LINES

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • LINE JUMBLE: Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has himself a couple of new line mates. He’s got Jujhar Khaira and Sam Gagner alongside him, while James Neal gets all the fun with Gaetan Haas and Alex Chiasson. Does this do anything to get some goals to the bottom six?
  • Mikko Koskinen did not get the start in Sunday’s game, disrupting the force of the 2-2-2-2 rotation. Will he turn in another solid performance and go 6-0 on the season?
  • EARLY BIRD: This game can get out of hand early if the Oilers take advantage. The Red Wings have scored just 13 goals in their last eight contests, they’ve allowed 34.

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
