The Oilers will host the Calgary Flames after making significant roster cuts today. After a lacklustre loss to the Canucks last night, can the team start putting some goals in the net?

LINES

Joakim Nygard - Leon Draisaitl - Zack Kassian

Anton Burdasov - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - Sam Gagner

Jujhar Khaira - Riley Sheahan - Josh Archibald

Markus Granlund - Gaetan Haas - Patrick Russell

Darnell Nurse - Adam Larsson

William Lagesson - Evan Bouchard

Brandon Manning - Ethan Bear

Mikko Koskinen

Shane Starrett

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Freshly signed PTO Anton Burdasov will see if he can put together a point or two on a line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Sam Gagner. Burdasov will be in the number 71 sweater, last worn by Lubomir Visnovsky.
  • BACK IN THE SADDLE AGAIN: Mikko Koskinen will get some more time in net tonight after a forgetful campaign last night. Here’s hoping that Koskinen was just kicking off some rust in last night’s loss to the Canucks.
  • Fresh off a 50 goal campaign, Leon Draisiatl gets his first preseason action of 2019-20. Will wingman Joakim Nygard get in on the scoring action?

I don’t care if it’s preseason or not. Beat the Flames.
