Kris Russell is in for Caleb Jones. #Oilers
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- CAN YOU TELL ME WHY?: Kris Russell? In for Caleb Jones? I’ll look for it but I won’t understand it. Edmonton could have gotten Tyler Ennis back in the lineup next to Ryan McLeod, or maybe switched around Ryan Nugent-Hopkins with Dominik Kahun, or done absolutely nothing at all, that would have been just fine too.
- AVENGE ME: The Oilers laid an egg when these two teams met last time. Edmonton yielded five goals, the club wasn’t able to score any. Can the club...not do that again?
- Connor McDavid is cruising with 84 points on the season so far. He’s got sixteen more points to go in nine games. Can he pad his total tonight?
