The Oilers are coming off a 6-1 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Monday night. They’ve got their sights set on the LA Kings tonight, as a regulation win will get them to second place in the Pacific.
Oilers are finishing off an optional morning skate. Mike Smith is on the ice and in the visitors’ net, indicating Mikko Koskinen should start tonight vs. LAK. Zack Kassian and Devin Shore are the only two players still out with Smith, so they’ll likely be scratched again.— Daniel Nugent-Bowman (@DNBsports) March 30, 2022
THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl are close to hitting some milestones. Connor McDavid is two points away from 100 on the season, while Leon Draisaitl is just two goals away from 50 on the season. The Kings are stingy on defence tonight, can either player break out tonight?
- Mikko Koskinen can tie his career high win total with a win tonight. Koskinen looks for win number 25 on the season and two points in the standings tonight.
- A regulation win will put the Oilers in second place. A win for the Oilers in regulation will put Edmonton in second place with a game in hand. Two points would be huge for the Oilers tonight.
Let’s get to it.
