After an ugly start that saw San Jose win just four of their first fifteen games, they’re winners of six straight. Can the Oilers toss a wrench into all of that?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • PLACES, PLEASE: Tonight is likely the last night that the defence will be without Adam Larsson. Larsson suffered a fibula injury several weeks ago, but will likely join the team when they take on the Kings this Thursday night. Will one of the current RDs be moved to the bench, or will Kris Russell sit with Caleb Jones moved on over?
  • JUJHAR POWER: Jujhar Khaira scored two goals in Edmonton’s 5-4 OTL to the Dallas Stars on Saturday afternoon. Now at 3 on the season, can he find a couple more alongside Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and James Neal?
  • A COMPLETE 60: The Oilers had the Stars right where they wanted them after two periods of play. The club let a 4-2 lead turn into a 4-4 tie at the end of regulation en route to a 5-4 OT loss. Can the Oilers stop San Jose’s six game winning streak and give a full 60 minutes?

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
