Oilers are back home to take on the Canucks for a pair. The Oilers have won their last two games against Vancouver, can they string it to three in a row?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • 7 MORE: Connor McDavid has five games i(ncluding tonight) to get seven more points. Seven more points will equal 100 on the season in just 56 games, which would be pretty astronomical. No pressure.
  • ANOTHER FOR MIKKO: Mikko Koskinen will start his second game this week after not playing in one since April 8th. Koskinen stopped 29 of 32 shots in Monday’s 5-3 victory over Vancouver, can he do enough to put up his 13th win of the year tonight?
  • HOME AT LAST: A win tonight will give the Oilers 68 points, which will be too far for the Winnipeg Jets to catch in the standings. A win tonight will give Edmonton home ice advantage for at least the first round of the playoffs. Again, no pressure.
