The Oilers close out their five game road trip in Chicago. They’ll look to pick up their third on this trip with sixty solid minutes. After a shutting out the Flyers in Philadelphia, can the Oilers turn in another solid performance?
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Mikko Koskinen will start in goal for the Oilers. Koskinen played a perfect game on Tuesday against the Flyers, stopping 39 total shots en route to a shutout. Can the Oilers get an encore performance today?
- Jonathan Toews will make his return to the Blackhawk lineup after being out for a month. Hawks captain Jonathan Toews’ last game before suffering a concussion was January 26th, a game against the Red Wings. Toews is a welcome site for the Hawks, he was cleared to play earlier today.
- The Blackhawks have not played since Sunday. A quick start for the Oilers is always in fashion. Chicago hasn’t played since Sunday, a 4-0 loss to the St. Louis Blues. Can the Oilers start building a lead early?
A win tonight would put Edmonton right alongside with LA in the Pacific for second place.
