SB Nation Opponent: Eyes On The Prize

Canadiens can clinch final playoff spot in North Division with a point tonight. Edmonton looks to put a stop to all of that.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • Mikko Koskinen simply can’t have the kind of night he had against Vancouver last week. He’ll get a chance to right the ship tonight as Mike Smith has the night off. Can Mikko Koskinen forget all about last week’s debacle and come out on top tonight?
  • Now seems like a good enough time for Ryan McLeod to make some waves on the scoresheet. McLeod can skate like the wind, can he, James Neal and Alex Chiasson find twine tonight?

Let’s get at it.
