The Oilers need a win tonight if they want to continue their season. Down 3-0 in a best of seven series, they’ve got to be perfect if they want to see next round.
Oilers lineup at WPG, game 4:— Jack Michaels (@EdmontonJack) May 25, 2021
Chiasson back in. Ah yes, Kris Russell.
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- It’s the second game of a back-to-back. I don’t expect beautiful hockey tonight, but the Oilers have to come out firing on all cylinders if they plan on taking this series back to Edmonton for a game five. Looking for the Oilers to come out flying tonight, as much as they can.
- With Josh Archibald out serving a one game suspension, Alex Chiasson is likely to get the nod back into the lineup. Can he bring a goal to the Oilers’ scorecard?
- Mike Smith gets the nod again tonight. Save for about sixteen seconds this series, he’s been a pleasant surprise this entire season. Can he help the Oilers salvage the season with a W tonight?
The Oilers are here for game 4. Will they see a game 5 on Wednesday?
