THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • The Edmonton Oilers are living without Connor McDavid for the next two games. Can the top line of...Lucic, Draisaitl, Kassian foot the bill tonight and Monday?
  • Not yet mathematically eliminated from postseason play, the Oilers are eight points out of a second wild card berth. A win over the Ducks could keep them alive for a couple more nights.
  • GAGNER GOALS: Sam Gagner scored in Edmonton’s 4-3 OT win over the NY Islanders on Thursday night. Can the newly re-acquired forward keep the good times rolling tonight?

Let’s all have some fun out there tonight.
