The Oilers try to keep the lights on with another win. They’ll face the Vancouver Canucks tonight. The Canucks took care of the Toronto Maple Leafs in OT last night. Can the Oilers take advantage of a team playing two games in two nights?
Ryan Nugent-Hopkins / Connor McDavid / Zack Kassian
Alex Chiasson / Leon Draisaitl / Sam Gagner
Milan Lucic / Colby Cave / Josh Currie
Jujhar Khaira / Kyle Brodziak / Brad Malone
Oscar Klefbom / Adam Larsson
Darnell Nurse / Kris Russell
Andrej Sekera / Matt Benning
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Zack Kassian has been handling his business on the top line as of late. He’s got three goals in his last three games, can he keep that streak alive tonight?
- The Canucks are rolling with Thatcher Demko in net tonight. In limited action, Demko has posted a 1-1 record with a .873 SV%. Can the Oilers exploit Demko’s inexperience?
- Mikko Koskinen is going for his 20th win of the season tonight. Can he (and the rest of the Oilers) take advantage of Canucks club that’s playing their second game in as many nights?
Let’s all have fun out there tonight.
