After a .500 road trip, the Oilers are back home to face a Habs club that’s 6-1 in their last 7.

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Mike Smith will get the start for the Oilers in goal. Smith’s last game was a 2-1 loss to the Carolina Hurricanes where he turned aside 27 of 29 total shots. A win tonight would give him six on the year
- Philip Broberg is in the lineup. Broberg was called up yesterday after learning that Tyson Barrie would be out of the lineup for a week or so due to injury.
- The Canadiens are hot right now. Since the arrival of Martin St. Louis, the Habs are 6-3-1 and they’re scoring a bunch of goals. Will this resurgence give Edmonton trouble tonight?
Oilers look for a win to keep pace with the Golden Knights. Can they take two points today?
