McDavid is back. Can he and the Oilers fend off the Leafs?

LINES

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Connor McDavid is back, baby. Not a moment too soon. Oilers went 1-1 with McDavid serving his two game suspension, but I’ll take a McDavid over no McDavid. Especially when they’re headed into Toronto to play the Leafs.
  • Mikko Koskinen is in the pipes for the Oilers tonight. He’ll face off against Frederik Andersen. Koskinen is 2-1-2 in his last five, can he pick up his 17th win on the year?
  • Leon Draisaitl scored his 37th and 38th goals of his season. He’s on pace for 50, can he make magic with Tobias Rieder and Alex Chiasson?

Let’s all have fun out there.
