SB Nation Opponent: Jewels From The Crown

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.

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.
