TWO IN FLORIDA

The Oilers will play their second game in as many days when they face off against the Carolina Hurricanes this afternoon. Mike Smith will get the start, can the Oilers turn in a performance today like their performance yesterday?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Mike Smith will start this afternoon’s game looking for his 17th win of the season. Can he meet or exceed Mikko Koskinen’s performance in Florida yesterday?
  • POINT A GAME: Kailer Yamamoto has had quite the time since being recalled. He’s got 17 points (8-9-17) in 17 games this season, including an empty netter and an assist yesterday. How long can he keep it up?
  • SCOREBOARD WATCHING: A win for the Oilers and a regulation loss for the Canucks (they play the Ducks today) will put Edmonton at first place in the Pacific.

Go get ‘em.
