SB Nation Opponent: Jewels From The Crown

Tyson Barrie scored a pair of goals, while Stuart Skinner turned aside 40 shots en route to Edmonton’s 4-2 victory over the Florida Panthers on Saturday. The Oilers will try to make it two in a row against a familiar divisional foe in the Los Angeles Kings. Can the Oilers get back on a winning streak?


  • It’s been a tale of two teams when it comes to special teams. The Oilers rank third in the league while on the power play, with a tidy 32.2% success rate. The penalty kill provides no cover, as it ranks third worst at just under 71% on the season. In other words, the Oilers could use about six power plays tonight.
  • Stuart Skinner gets the nod in goal. Skinner played lights out in Edmonton’s 4-2 win on Saturday, and ought to get the lion’s share of the net while Jack Campbell finds his game.
  • Tonight is Reverse Retro night. The Oilers will debut their updated McFarlane jerseys that contain a bit of Orange tonight. It will be the first time in fifteen years that the Oilers have worn a similar looking uniform; they’d love nothing more than to make it the uniform they beat the Kings by a dozen goals.

Kings are a good team. Oilers would do well to come out ahead in this one.
