SBN Counterpart: Habs Eyes on the Prize
The Edmonton Oilers, winners of three straight, are in Montreal tonight to take on the Canadiens. These two clubs haven’t met since February 11th, when the Oilers stopped in Montreal for a quick 3-0 shutout win between series in Toronto and Ottawa.
Mike Smith (11-3-0, 0.922%) is set to start for the Oilers with Carey Price (10-5-5, 0.903%) due to go for the Habs.
In Case You Missed It
