A trip to Toronto means a homecoming of sorts for Connor McDavid, and The Captain looks forward to playing in front of friends and family.
Sunil took a look into the Oilers’ struggles when trailing in games this season, and some of the key underlying issues.
Jon Willis at The Athletic dove into James Neal’s resurgence at 5v5, Matt Benning’s injury progress, and the temptation of recalling Tyler Benson.

Edmonton Oilers prospects Raphael Lavoie and Olivier Rodrigue earned themselves gold medals at the WJHC yesterday, with Philip Broberg taking home the bronze for his efforts.
