With fourteen games remaining in the schedule, the Oilers need to make up seven points in order to get into the dance. Can the Oilers handle the Rangers at Rogers Place tonight?
Leon Draisaitl / Connor McDavid / Zack Kassian
Jujhar Khaira / Ryan Nugent-Hopkins / Sam Gagner
Tobias Rieder / Colby Cave / Alex Chiasson
Brad Malone / Kyle Brodziak / Josh Currie
Oscar Klefbom / Adam Larsson
Darnell Nurse / Kris Russell
Andrej Sekera / Matt Benning
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- The Oilers have a ton of real estate to make up. The Wild are currently seven points ahead of the Oilers in the standings, and picking up two points tonight against the Rangers would be a pretty good place to start. They’re running out of time.
- Milan Lucic is out tonight (hip). Jujhar Khaira is bumped up to line two. The bottom six is once again a point of concern for this club, and it’d be nice if it was addressed between now and the next lockout.
- Mikko Koskinen looks for his 21st win on the season. Alex Stolarz made his first start in his Oiler career after Koskinen was unable to go against Toronto. Can Koskinen put up the brick wall?
Let’s all have fun out there.
