The Oilers hung seven goals on Calgary last night. They’ll try for at least that many tonight versus the Jets. Can the Oilers win two games in two nights?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Mikko Koskinen looks to get his ninth win of the season. The Jets will counter with former Oiler Laurent Brossoit. Both clubs are coming off wins last night, can the Oilers’ netminder counter Brossoit?
  • Connor McDavid’s three points gave him 56 on the season. He’s currently on pace for 98 points over a 56 game season, and he’d be on pace for over 140 in a regular season. How many points does he have tonight?
  • The Oilers are within striking distance of first place in the division. All they got to do is win the game tonight and they’ll be tied in first place with the Leafs. The Leafs have a few games in hand, but we’ll cross that bridge when we find it.

Let’s get at it.
