The Devils aren’t very good, which could be the exact tonic the Oilers need.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • IMPRESSIVE TRIOS: The Impressive Trio™ of Jujhar Khaira, Riley Sheahan and Josh Archibald is back. “Impressive Trio” isn’t my line, it’s what the club called this line in a tweet earlier in the day. With Sheahan and Archibald both coming off of injury, it’d be great to see them contribute to the score sheet tonight.
  • Mikko Koskinen gets the nod tonight. He’ll be looking for his sixth win of the year, can he help deliver?
  • Is this a must-win game? No, but it should be. A four-win club is coming to Edmonton after getting the tires kicked out from under them in Calgary last night. The goaltending can’t stop a beach ball right now, they’re 20th in goals scored. Put it all together, Oilers.
