SB Nation Opponent: Eyes On The Prize

It took some magic by McDavid and a solid night from Mikko Koskinen to help push the Oilers over the Predators on Thursday night. With a three game win streak on the line, the Oilers will look to make it four with a victory in Montréal tonight.


  • After three straight victories with Mikko Koskinen in goal, Stuart Skinner will start tonight in Montréal. He’ll look to pick up his fifth win of the season with a solid effort.
  • Tonight is Evander Kane’s debut with the Oilers. Kane hasn’t played in a regular season game since the end of last season, he’ll start on the top line with Connor McDavid and Kailer Yamamoto.
  • It looks like finally, perhaps, maybe we’ll see Ryan Nugent-Hopkins on the third line with Zach Hyman. Imagine three lines! On the Oilers!

Let’s get at it.
