AFTERNOON DELIGHT?

Oilers look to keep things interesting with a visit from the Senators this afternoon. Can the Oilers keep the lights on for another night with a victory this afternoon?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • 4: The Oilers could be within four points of a wild-card position with a win tonight. Pull for a Blackhawks win over Colorado and a Hurricanes win over Minnesota. Also, pull for a Flames win over Vancouver, just because.
  • NEON LEON: Draisaitl is six points from 100, seven goals from 50. A visit from Ottawa could help pad those stats.
  • 45: Joseph Gambardella picked up his first point of his NHL career against Columbus on Thursday night. Does he have any more points on a line with (looks at notes...) Kyle Brodziak and Josh Currie?

Let’s have fun out there.
