THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Mikko Koskinen gets back into the net after Mike Smith has won three straight. Koskinen didn’t have the best of outings against the Flames last time, can his fortunes turn around with a win tonight?
  • Don’t look now, but Josh Archibald has three points (2-1-3) in his last five games. Can he keep a little streak going tonight?
  • The Oilers (and Flames) are playing for first place in the Pacific tonight. A win of any kind for the Oilers will put them there. The Oilers meet Calgary and Arizona several times over the next few weeks, tonight’s game is a test.

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
