The Oilers hit the road for the final leg of their preseason schedule. Their penultimate stop is tonight in Winnipeg, where they’ll take on the Jets. Let’s see them lines.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Plenty of line talk tonight. Top line features Tomas Jurco, who is pushing for a roster spot out of camp. Also interested to see the McDavid / Neal combo. There’s another Burdasov sighting tonight, can a solid effort give him the push towards the 23 man roster?
  • Ethan Bear will start alongside Oscar Klefbom tonight for Joel Persson. Brandon Manning and William Lagesson are also in tonight looking to impress.
  • Mike Smith is scheduled to get the full 60 tonight. A solid performance tonight will rightly push Koskinen to do the same Saturday night in Calgary.
