Oilers are in the middle of a nasty four game funk (0-3-1). Can their luck turn around in Dallas?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • The Oilers are in Dallas looking to stop a skid. They’ll have quite the challenge, as Dallas is has allowed the second fewest goals so far this season. Can the Oilers spring a leak in the Dallas defence?
  • Mikko Koskinen will get the start again tonight. He was in the pipes for Edmonton’s 4-1 loss to the Leafs on Saturday, can he (and the rest of the club) rebound?
  • KEEPING PACE: The Oilers need a win, and they need it now. The club is holding onto third place by a whisker, a win would not only stop a four game winless streak, but it would help them hang onto third for now. Can the club pick up two points?

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
