Oilers close out their four game homestand looking to finish .500.
Can they do it with a big win?

Russell-Manning (Jones recalled)
Koskinen looks to be starting vs Canes.
Substitute Caleb Jones for Brandon Manning.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Joakim Nygard is up on the top line for the Oilers. Can he provide a spark with Connor McDavid?
- Ryan Nugent-Hopkins teams up with Leon Draisaitl on line two. If Nygard can make it happen up top, can a line of 16-93-29 give the Oilers two really good scoring lines?
- Caleb Jones replaces Joel Persson, who spent just three games in his latest stint with the big club. Is Jones a fixture on the big club, or is Edmonton pulling a showcase?
Edmonton stays on top of the Pacific if they win tonight. Let’s get crackin’.
