SB Nation Opponent: Eyes On The Prize

The Oilers are back in Montréal looking to atone for last week’s letdown. Let’s see what’s in store tonight.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • SMITH IN NET: The Oilers backstop will look to pick up his 14th win of the season with a solid performance tonight. Can he make it number 14 on the year?
  • Connor McDavid lit the lamp for his 22nd goal and 64th point of the year. He needs to average 2 points per game between now and the end of the season to make it a cool 100. Can he lay it on the line tonight in Montréal?
  • Dominik Kahun scored his sixth of the season in Edmonton’s 3-2 victory over the Calgary Flames on Friday. Can he keep the good times rolling with another goal tonight?

Oilers will have sole possession of second place tonight with a win. Let’s do it up.
