THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Cam Talbot climbs back between the pipes for the Oilers. He and the Oilers are looking for their second win in as many games.
  • Connor McDavid has eighty total points on the season. He trails Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov by one point for the league lead. Will he lead the league after tonight’s game versus San Jose?
  • It’s going to take plenty of help from the rest of the league, but a win tonight from the Oilers and some help along the way could put the Oilers tied for the second wild card spot. The Oilers have to help themselves by taking two points against a powerhouse Sharks squad. Can they get there tonight?
