THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- The Oilers are running out of time. Six points seperate the Oilers from the second wild card position in the West. They’ve got to come out and score more than one goal against the Carolina Hurricanes tonight, and they’ve got to do it against the Islanders tomorrow. No sweat, right?
- Same lines tonight as against the Penguins. Hitchcock’s got a feeling. Mikko Koskinen gets the nod once again tonight, can he put in sixty minutes?
- Also hungry: Carolina. The Hurricanes are just three points out of a playoff position in the Eastern Conference, and they’ve got nothing between them and the Pittsburgh Penguins except three points.
