Oilers look for another two points tonight just like they did in Monday’s 6-1 romp over the Jets. The Oilers are going with their same lineup tonight, so let’s find three things to look for.
No line up changes for #Oilers.— Jason Gregor (@JasonGregor) April 28, 2021
Kahun – McDavid – Puljujarvi
RNH – Draisaitl – Yamamoto
Shore – McLeod – Archibald
Neal – Haas – Chiasson
Nurse – Barrie
Kulikov – Larsson
Jones – Bear
THREE FOUR THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Mikko Koskinen gets the nod tonight for the first time since April 7th. A win tonight brings him to .500 on the season. Koskinen’s last performance was a 28 save performance against the Ottawa Senators for a win. What will we get tonight?
- The countdown is on. Connor McDavid has 81 points and he’s got ten games to get 19 more. McDavid has done well against the Jets this season (including a four point effort on Monday night), is another multi-point night in the cards?
- Winnipeg’s Connor Hellebuyck gets another kick in the can tonight. Hellebuyck got yanked after two periods and six goals against. Will Connor Hellebuyck get revenge tonight, or will the Oilers feast again?
- Kahun-McDavid-Puljujärvi combined for seven points on Monday. Can the top line meet or exceed that number tonight?
Winning by a 6-1 margin is always a fun time. Let’s do it again tonight.
