SB Nation Opponent: Eyes On The Prize

The game’s a little later tonight than we would have expected due to Covid testing, the results of which put Jesse Puljujärvi on the protocol list. Can the Oilers put three solid periods together and escape with two points from Centre Bell?



  • With Jesse Puljujärvi out of the lineup and in Covid protocol, James Neal took reps with the first line this morning. Can he make some hay on the top line?
  • Mike Smith will get his second start of the season after showing well in Ottawa on Tuesday night. Can he have another night like his first night in Ottawa?
  • After a 4-2 loss to the Maple Leafs, the Canadiens are playing their second game in as many nights. Will the Oilers be able to take advantage of a tired Habs club?

Let’s. Go. Oilers
