The Oilers look to bounce back with a win tonight after an ugly third period in Columbus. Down two regulars, can they put up two points tonight?

THREE THINGS TO LOOK FOR

- The Oilers are turning to Mike Smith in net once more. Smith has played very well recently, can he put up another solid 60 minutes tonight?

- Edmonton will be down two regulars once more. Darnell Nurse and Jesse Puljujärvi will miss tonight's contest for a second straight game. Can a top line of Kane-McDavid-Yamamoto help carry the mail?

- The Oilers will clinch home ice in round one of the playoffs with a win tonight. No pressure, but this one's a big one.
