Oilers can make it a three game win streak by picking up two points tonight

Oilers and Jets hook up at Rogers Place for the second time in as many games.

Edmonton could take top spot in the division with a win tonight and a Leafs loss.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Something is going to break with that defence sooner or later. Nurse / Barrie play the hits, William Lagesson and Adam Larsson ought to be switched with whatever Bear’s line is until you find out that Kris Russell is the other part of it. Can the Oiler defence hold steady tonight?
  • Mike Smith looks for win number 11 on the season tonight. His last outing was a 4-3 win over the Calgary Flames, can he keep the Jets at bay tonight?
  • Josh Archibald is in for Kailer Yamamoto tonight. Yamamoto will miss his second game with an upper body injury, can Archibald strike gold on the scoresheet tonight?

Let’s. Go. Oilers
