The Oilers look to get back into the win column after a disappointing loss to the Arizona Coyotes. The Sharks are in town, and they’ve had all sorts of trouble so far this year. Can the Oilers seal the deal?


  • Tyler Benson gets his first game in Edmonton. The local product will tag along with Gaetan Haas and Alex Chiasson tonight, can he keep his head above water?
  • RIGHT BACK AT IT: Mikko Koskinen is back for the Oilers after a 3-0 loss to Arizona on Tuesday. Can he pick up a W tonight?
  • The Archibald-McDavid-Gagner combo is something I didn’t expect to see. Zack Kassian is on the third line with Jujhar Khaira and Riley Sheahan. Which ones of these lines can get it going?
