The Oilers look to get back into the win column and split this two game series with the Winnipeg Jets. A win in regulation will get the Oilers back to third in the North.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Connor McDavid is looking for point number 500 in his career, he could make tonight that night. Any point tonight will give him 500 total in just 369 career games.
  • Gaetan Haas is back in the lineup tonight. It will be his first game since February 2nd.
  • Mike Smith looks to battle back from an ugly last game that saw him yield 4 goals in eleven shots. Can he forget about Monday and put together a strong effort tonight?

Let’s. Go. Oilers.
