The Oilers will need to do some heavy lifting with the recent rash of injuries to their roster. The Bruins are in town. They’ve won nine of their last ten. Can the Oilers take care of business?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • The defence is going to have to tighten up a little more now that Oscar Klefbom is out with a shoulder injury for the next couple of weeks. William Lagesson will step in tonight. Will Evan Bouchard see some ice time in Klefbom’s absence?
  • ONES TO WATCH: Boston’s top line of Brad Marchand / Patrice Bergeron / David Pastrnak will be flying out there tonight.
  • ONES TO WATCH: One good turn deserves another. The Oilers will be without Connor McDavid, James Neal and a host of other players tonight. Can the line of Ryan Nugent-Hopkins / Leon Draisaitl and Kailer Yamamoto give Boston all they can handle?

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
