Oilers look to finish a perfect 3/3 on their roadie and catch the Golden Knights atop the Pacific in the process.


  • We’re so close to seeing Oscar Klefbom return to the lineup. Klefbom was a ‘maybe’ for today, but he was held out earlier today. Can the Oilers make it one more game without their best defenceman?
  • Mike Smith took a stinger to his blocker hand during practice, but it was determined that he could start tonight. Can the Oilers get another 60 minutes from him?
  • There’s only two things to look for tonight. The third comes after the game when the Oiler have tied the Golden Knights in the standings. That’s how this is supposed to work, right?
