THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • There are two new faces on this roster today. Kailer Yamamoto and William Lagesson will be making their season debuts, and not a moment too soon. Yamamoto is a fresh face on a club that’s got too many deck chairs being shuffled about. William Lagesson will make his season debut alongside Adam Larsson. Can these two help shake it up?
  • The Rangers have the fifth worst goals allowed per game (3.27). The Oilers have the fifth worst scoring rate while at five-on-five (2.18/60). Can the Oilers spring a couple early ones on the Rangers?
  • Mikko Koskinen will look to have a bounce-back effort after getting pulled against the Flames, Can the Oilers get sixty minutes from him tonight?

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
