Oilers get Oscar Klefbom back not a moment too soon.
Milan Lucic - Connor McDavid - Ty Rattie
Tobias Rieder - Leon Draisaitl - Alex Chiasson

Brad Malone - Kyle Brodziak - Jesse Puljujarvi
Oscar Klefbom - Adam Larsson
Darnell Nurse - Kris Russell
Kevin Gravel - Matt Benning
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- See what happens when you put Oscar Klefbom back into the lineup? The defence pairs look almost passable. Klefbom will play in his first game since blocking a shot that broke a finger back nearly two months ago on December 11th.
- Drake Caggiula will face off against the Oilers for the first time since being dealt to the Blackhawks at the end of 2018. He’s got four points (1-3-4) in ten games since being dealt.
- SCOREBOARD WATCHING: Oilers need to win tonight. They also need the Canucks to loses, the Blues to lose, it would be helpful if the Ducks could keep losing, and what the hell, the Wild could lose too and I wouldn’t lose much sleep over it.
