Matt Benning not skating.
Mike Smith starts as Larsson returns to the lineup for the first time since Opening Night.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Adam Larsson makes his way back to the lineup tonight. Larsson’s return is after weeks of recovery from a broken fibula sustained from blocking a shot in the first game of the season. Paired with Kris Russell, how will he fare in his first game back?
- Mike Smith gets the nod for the Oilers tonight. Can he pick up where Mikko Koskinen left off in a 5-2 victory over the Sharks on Tuesday?
- SOMETHIN’ SPECIAL: The Kings are having trouble on both sides of the puck, but the PK is tied for league worst with the Detroit Red Wings (72.2%). Can the Oilers take advantage of any King penalties tonight?
Let’s. Go. Oilers.
