Oilers searching for goals on the road. Tonight, they’ll face the Blue Jackets on the tail end of a back-to-back.
Persson likey to play as per @Bob_Stauffer .— Woodguy (@Woodguy55) October 30, 2019
Laggesson, Manning, and Jurco only players to take the optional skate.
Neither Jurco nor Manning out for warmup. So Granlund in on 4th line, and Persson back w/Klefbom on 2nd pair, with K. Russell sliding next to Benning.— Jack Michaels (@EdmontonJack) October 30, 2019
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Joel Persson is back, which is a load off the shoulders. Kris Russell is back on the third pair with Matthew Benning, and maybe now someone can hit an outlet pass.
- SECONDS: It’s getting comical. Can the Oilers buy a goal from the bottom lines? Heck, can they buy some goals from the top two lines?
- SMITH: Mike Smith is back in net after a forgettable performance that saw him get hit in the groin, then allow 3 goals in 65 seconds. Can he forge about all that and turn in an A+ performance?
Let’s. Go. Oilers.
