The Oilers are in Nashville looking to snap an 0-1-1 run. They’ll have their hands full with Roman Josi and the Predators tonight. Can they slip into Nashville and grab two points?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR
- Mike Smith returns to the crease tonight. Smith has shown well in his most recent work, and is on a four game win streak. He’ll look for his twelfth win of the season tonight.
- Roman Josi is a force to be reckoned with. The NHL’s leading point scorer on defence, Josi’s 86 points proves that he’s as much a threat with the puck as he is without.
- The Oilers are going 11/7 tonight. Kris Russell is the seventh defenceman tonight as the Oilers will feature three lines while sprinkling in some McLeod and Kassian. Will it tilt the score in their favour?
