Oilers can pick up two more giant points in the standings with a win over the surging Maple Leafs in Toronto. The Oilers have had their share of struggles in southern Ontario in recent history. Can they take two points tonight?

Klefbom had a maintenance day yesterday, expect him with Ethan Bear.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

- Mike Smith is playing in his third consecutive game, and he will have to be up to the task in Toronto. He had 35 saves in Edmonton's win in Boston, can he bring the goods tonight?

- Let's see some more of the 93-29-56 line. Kailer Yamamoto is 1-1-2 in 3 games in Edmonton this year.

- The Oiler defenceman will need to be on high alert. Toronto scores the second most goals per game on average, can the Oilers keep them at bay?
