The Blue Jackets are holding onto a playoff berth by the thinnest of margins. A loss to the Oilers tonight would put an even tighter strain on a club that’s all-in. Can the Oilers trip up the Jackets?
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Connor McDavid - Zack Kassian
Milan Lucic - Leon Draisaitl - Alex Chiasson
Tobias Rieder - Colby Cave - Sam Gagner
Joseph Gambardella - Kyle Brodziak - Josh Currie
Oscar Klefbom - Adam Larsson
Darnell Nurse - Kris Russell
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- The Oilers were beat up pretty good in Tuesday’s 7-2 loss to the Blues. With just nine games remaining in the season, can they string a couple of wins together to finish out the season strong?
- Milan Lucic was tossed from Tuesday’s game after a questionable hit on Blues forward Oskar Sundqvist. He’s back on line two alongside Leon Draisaitl and Alex Chiasson.
- Mikko Koskinen will no doubt be looking to string sixty solid minutes together. He was relieved by Alex Stolarz after allowing the third goal in Edmonton’s 7-2 loss to St. Louis on Tuesday.
