Vegas is comfortably in the dance, though they’re six points behind the second ranked Sharks in the Pacific. The Oilers...well, they’re here too.

LINES

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Mikko Koskinen is scheduled to make the start tonight after a forgettable appearance versus Anaheim. You might ask why a team would be interested in playing one goaltender for 23 out of 24 games. I sure know I would.
  • The Ty Rattie Experience is back, baby. With Brad Malone and Josh Currie? That’s going to be quite an energy line if it picks up just six minutes total.
  • DRAFTING? Oilers currently hold the eighth overall pick in the 2019 NHL Draft Lottery. Maybe they can draft a top six winger if the chips fall to their advantage.
