Victorious over the Jets in last night’s tilt, the Oilers will host the 30-win Wild tonight back in Edmonton. Can the Oilers make it six wins in a row?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

  • The Oilers are playing their fifth game in seven nights. Edmonton might need an extra minute or two in order to get the sea legs working, as they’ll play their fifth game in a week tonight. Can the Oilers get things going early on?
  • Mike Smith will start in goal for the OIlers. Smith’s last start was a 7-3 win where he turned aside 27 saves. He’ll look for his sixth win of the season tonight.
  • Colton Sceviour makes his way back to the lineup. Sceviour will play his first game for the Oilers in nearly a month after being called up a couple days ago. He’ll replace Brendan Perlini, who suited up for just 3:42 last game.
