Oilers look to finish their quick two game roadie with two wins. Can they knock off the defending Stanley Cup Champs tonight?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • THREE IN A ROW: Coach Tippett is going with goaltender MIkko Koskinen again tonight. It’ll be Koskinen’s third start in a row, Koskinen had a fine performance in Edmonton’s 2-1 win over the Stars on Monday night. Can Koskinen put up another stellar performance?
  • BLUE CHRISTMAS: David Perron is currently leading the Blues with 33 points in 35 games. He’s coming off a hat trick last game as the Blues took care of Colorado 5-2. The former Oiler is on the right wing of 2019 Stanley Cup Champion Ryan O’Reilly on line two. The Oilers will have their work cut out by watching those two.
  • I haven’t talked about Connor McDavid in a few posts, which seems silly. His next point will be his 60th, which ain’t too bad in only your 37th game of the year. Maybe he’ll have a few more tonight, it’s a pretty safe bet.

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
