The Oilers are back at Rogers Place for the first of six in a row at home. They’ll look to forget Friday’s loss to Seattle hopefully by picking up a couple of points against the Kings tonight.
Oilers lineup vs. LA:— Tony Brar (@TonyBrarOTV) December 6, 2021
Draisaitl - McDavid - Puljujarvi
Hyman - RNH - Yamamoto
Foegele - Ryan - Sceviour
Benson - McLeod - Kassian
Nurse - Bouchard
Niemelainen - Barrie
Broberg - Russell
THREE NUMBERS TO LOOK FOR
- 25: Darnell Nurse is a game-time decision after being activated from IR. Nurse broke a finger in a mid-November matchup against the Winnipeg Jets. If he makes the lineup tonight, it’ll be a drink of water for a battered up Oilers defence corps who were missing Nurse and three additional regulars from the lineup.
- 13: Currently, Jack Campbell (TOR), Igor Shestyorkin (NYR) and Cam Talbot (MIN) all have 13 wins. A win for Mikko Koskinen tonight would bring him to 13 on the season. Can Koskinen put forth a solid 60?
- 70: Colton Sceviour is due for a goal. Sceviour was on the third line with Warren Foegele and Derek Ryan yesterday. Sceviour has had some chances but hasn’t hit water in the well yet. Tonight feels like a good night for him to get his first of the year.
