A regulation win will give the Oilers a tie with Vegas atop the Pacific. They’ll have to do it without their captain who is out with an illness.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • With Edmonton’s team captain out with an illness, the spotlight is thrust upon Leon Draisaitl once again. Draisaitl was named third star of the week with 8 points (4-4-8) in four games, can he help shoulder the load tonight?
  • No Caleb Jones? I don’t know about all of that.
  • Line salad in Connor McDavid’s absence. Tyler Ennis - Gaetan Haas - Zack Kassian is a thing tonight. Go get ‘em. At least Athanasiou / Sheahan / Archibald will be fast.
