The Oilers are looking for the good times to keep rolling after last night’s 8-3 victory in Nashville.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Hey there, James Neal. James Neal gets back into action on a line with Jujhar Khaira and Alex Chiasson after being out since January 29th with a foot injury. Can he score his 20th of the season tonight?
  • Line two is just on fire. Can we call it the 1A line? Leon Draisaitl had four goals last night (and an assist), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had three helpers, and Kailer Yamamoto had a goal and an assist. Can that line just keep plowing through?
  • Mikko Koskinen gets back in net for the first time since Wednesday’s 3-0 loss to the Golden Knights. Can the Oilers get 60 minutes out of Koskinen tonight?

An Oilers win tonight coupled with a Golden Knights loss in regulation to the Devils will get Edmonton a tie for first in the Pacific. Let’s do it.
