The Oilers needed every last second of Sunday’s game to secure a 4-3 victory. A win tonight will give them three on their four game road trip.

Let’s get down to funky town.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • The first line had a night on Sunday. McDavid had three assists (one as soon as the power play finished late in the game), Jesse Puljujärvi had an assist, and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins had a goal. While the third line scored a goal on Sunday (!!), the Oilers would do well to have this line have another night like they did on Sunday.
  • Slater Koekkoek is a healthy scratch tonight, Caleb Jones draws in. Can Jones hold onto a roster spot after a four game absence?
  • The Oilers power play is a lacklustre 3/26 right now. Surely a goal comes tonight?

Let’s. Go. Oilers
