After a shutout victory in against the Winnipeg Jets to open the preseason, the Oilers are in BC tonight to take on the Canucks. Let’s get a peek at those lines.

Love these graphics from the Oilers. I can only hope they keep them going in the regular season.


  • Second game in as many nights for Evan Bouchard. Bouchard will pair with Dmitri Samorukov after pairing with clock-muncher William Lagesson last night.
  • A top line of Cooper Marody, Tomas Jurco and Josh Currie will no doubt have their work cut out for them in order to reach the score sheet, but I’ve got my eye on the Ryan McLeod / Tyler Benson pairing on the third line.
  • Expect Shane Starrett and Dylan Wells to split time like Stuart Skinner and Wells did last night.

Tonight’s the night where someone will take a leap forward. Who will it be?
