The Edmonton Oilers, fresh off their fourth 5-0-0 (five-game) homestand in franchise history, are taking their talents on the road to face their stiffest test to date since Jay Woodcroft took over behind the bench: the Colorado Avalanche. Colorado sits atop the NHL with 93 points and are winners of three straight games, but Edmonton’s been a different animal since Woodcroft’s arrival:

Both teams added to their rosters at the trade deadline, with Edmonton shipping “Wild” Bill Lagesson and a conditional second round pick to MTL for D Brett Kulak before firing another depth pick to Philadelphia for Derrick Brassard this afternoon. Colorado sent a promising D prospect and a 2024 second to those same Habs for Artturi Lehkonen before sending a 2022 fifth to SJ in exchange for former Oiler Andrew Cogliano. None of the new additions for either side are expected to dress tonight, from what I can tell.

Darcy Keumper will mind the crease for the host Avalanche tonight. Mike Smith is rumored to get the start for Edmonton. Giddy up.
