The Edmonton Oilers are back in action tonight as they play host to the visiting Buffalo Sabres in what is sure to be a real hockey game.

Edmonton is still licking their wounds after a tough loss against their rival Calgary Flames on Saturday night. Buffalo are coming off a tough loss to the Florida Panthers.

The Oilers are set to give local lad Stuart Skinner his first start of the season after a sterling relief performance on the weekend in which he stopped 31 of 31. Buffalo also has a goalie.

Markus Niemelainen has been recalled and looks likely to make his season debut tonight as Edmonton’s seventh defenseman. Devin Shore will return to the lineup as well, while Brad Malone has been reassigned to Bakersfield.
