After a hard fought game versus the Boston Bruins that saw the Oilers come away with a point, they’ll face the Minnesota Wild tonight looking to climb back into the top spot of the Pacific.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Mikko Koskinen is set to make the start tonight, he has started just one of the club’s last six. Can the club depend on him for a full 60?
  • The Wild are right in the thick of things when it comes to scoring goals, but they’re just 23rd when it comes to keeping them out of the net. Can the Oilers take advantage of a leaky Minnesota club?
  • PRESSURE OFF? Darnell Nurse played nearly 30 minutes in Edmonton’s 2-1 overtime loss to Boston on Wednesday night. Can the club find a happy medium between Darnell Nurse’s minutes and the rest of the left side?

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
