Toronto visits Edmonton for their first of three. With the Maple Leafs just four points head of Edmonton in the standings, can the Oilers make inroads to the top?
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- 7-0?: Mike Smith looks to keep his record perfect as he will get the start for the Oilers tonight. Can he and the rest of the Oilers keep the Leafs at bay?
- 40 AND SPORTY: Connor McDavid scored his fortieth point in Edmonton’s 3-0 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Thursday night. He’s on pace for 102 points over 56 games, and the Oilers lead the league in goals scored per game. Shake those dice.
- LEAF NET: All the talk about Auston Matthews being out with a hand injury is warranted, but look for Leafs goaltender Jack Campbell to get his first start in over a month. Will Campbell give Oiler shooters fits, or will McDavid and the rest of the club make some noise?
Let’s. Go. Oilers
