The Oilers are on the tail end of a back-to-back tonight. Can the OIlers forget about last night’s shenanigans with the Canadiens in town?
Oiler lineup vs MTL:— Jack Michaels (@EdmontonJack) December 21, 2019
*Koskinen vs Price in net...
*EDM 3-0 in 2nd half of back-to-backs this year.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- KOSS IS BOSS ONE MORE TIME: Mikko Koskinen gets the start tonight on the tail end of a back-to-back. If you happened to catch last night’s game, you’ll note that Mike Smith didn’t have a very good time out there. Look for Koskinen to continue receiving the lion’s share of the starts, including this one tonight .
- SPECIAL TEAMS: Montreal’s PK is 27th in the league at just under 76%. Now might be the time to get that number one power play going.
- STAYIN’ ALIVE: Last night’s loss kept the Oilers idle at third in the Pacific. Calgary is breathing down their necks with one less point and a game in hand. Can the Oilers put together a full sixty minutes?
Let’s. Go. Oilers
