THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Thankfully, Oscar Klefbom is a go. Klefbom was questionable after taking a puck to the midsection in Edmonton’s 3-2 OT win over the Rangers on Monday.
  • TIRED DEVILS: The Oilers should take care of the worst ranked team in the Metro division tonight. Riddled with injuries, they got shellacked in Calgary by a 9-4 margin last night.
  • KEEP THE PACE: A win tonight will put Edmonton within four points of Arizona. The Coyotes hold onto the second wild card spot in the Western Conference at this time.
