SB Nation Opponent: Nucks Misconduct

The Oilers are on the road again. They’ll play their first of a two game set in Vancouver tonight. Edmonton has some spring in their step after taking care of the Calgary Flames by a 7-1 margin on Saturday night, will they continue to pile the goals on tonight?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • MR. JONES: Caleb Jones is scheduled to get back into the lineup for the first time since the end of January tonight. He’s slated to pair with Evan Bouchard. Can Caleb Jones make the most of his first appearance in what seems like forever?
  • MR. SMITH: Mike Smith has had four excellent starts out of five so far this year. Can he make it five of six tonight?
  • GOAL TROUBLE: The Canucks are 2-7-2 in the month of February, and the culprit is their inability to fill the net. They’re averaging under 2.25 goals per game during this stretch, and that’s not going to get it done on most nights. Can the Oilers keep Vancouver from filling the net?

Let’s. Go. Oilers
