09 February 2021

Canadian Tire Centre

5 PM MST

TV: Sportsnet West

Radio: 630 CHED

A win tonight will push the Oilers over the .500 hump.

LINES

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins – Connor McDavid – Jesse Puljujärvi

Dominik Kahun – Leon Draisaitl – Kailer Yamamoto

James Neal – Kyle Turris – Alex Chiasson

Tyler Ennis – Devin Shore – Josh Archibald

Darnell Nurse – Tyson Barrie

William Lagesson – Adam Larsson

Slater Koekkoek – Evan Bouchard

Mikko Koskinen

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Zack Kassian has been placed on LTIR and Alex Chiasson will replace him in the lineup. Chiasson has yet to get a point this season in seven games, will tonight see him hit the scoresheet?
  • A PAIR OF TENS: Both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl have ten game point scoring streaks. Will they be able to take advantage of a leaky Marcus Hoberg (.844 SV%) in the Ottawa crease?
  • BACK TO MIKKO: Koskinen got to watch Mike Smith pick up a W last night. Can he come back and help backstop the Oilers over the .500 mark?

Let’s. Go. Oilers
