THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Every game is big at this point, but the Oilers are one point up on Calgary with a game in hand. Edmonton wins in regulation and everything’s just smoothies. The Flames win in regulation, and Calgary leapfrogs Edmonton in the standings.
  • Old friend Milan Lucic will face off against Edmonton for the first time since being dealt to Calgary. He’s got eight points so far this season, can the Oilers keep him at bay tonight?
  • Tonight’s the night that Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl should go nuclear. A combined 123 points between the two players, they’ve got some rest and they’ll make some space. Can they make David Rittich and the rest of the Flames pay?

Let’s. Go. Oilers!
