With just three more preseason games to go, the Oilers are soon to be making their final roster movements. Tonight, they look to get a little bit closer as they host the Calgary Flames at Rogers Place. Before we get to it, let’s check out the lines.

  • This...looks pretty close to what we could see on the opening night roster. Those top three lines look lock-tight from here, a fourth line of Perlini-Shore-Turris could get some juggling.
  • Tonight’s the night we see Duncan Keith for the first time in an Oilers jersey. He’ll pair with Cody Ceci, which could be a pair to open the regular season.
  • Mikko Koskinen will get the start tonight for the Oilers. His partner Mike Smith is out with an illness. A solid outing from Koskinen could go far in his quest to open the season as the number one.

Let’s all have some fun out there.
