SB Nation Opponent: Eyes On The Prize

The Oilers have clinched second in the division . The Canadiens have clinched the fourth and final spot. No matter what happens today, these two teams will finish second and fourth respectively. Let me take this time to bellyache about the 3 PM start. Who greenlit this?


  • Kyle Turris is in for Kailer Yamamoto, who is out with an undisclosed injury. Yamamoto had an assist on Connor McDavid’s overtime winner versus the Habs on Monday, but Kyle Turris will be on the second line with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Leon Draisaitl. Can Turris make the most of out of a turn on the second line?
  • Mike Smith keeps piling up the wins, he looks for win 21 on the season. Can he keep the wins coming?
  • NO INJURIES: We’re about a week away from when the playoffs would begin for the Oilers and Jets. A healthy Oilers team is the best Oilers team.

Now go out there and paste the Habs by a 6-1 score.
