Yakupov and Kassian Play Tonight
A day after being recalled from the Bakersfield Condors, Zack Kassian will play his first game with the Oilers and his first game of the season. He won't be the only new face to the line-up though, Nail Yakupov will also be back after missing the last 22 games with a sprained ankle. There's been no word yet on who gets sent to Bakersfield to open a spot for Yakupov but during his show this afternoon Bob Stauffer mentioned Brad Hunt a half dozen times, so the smart money is probably on him.

Cam Talbot Back Between the Pipes
Nothing surprising here, after getting the night off on Tuesday night, Cam Talbot will be back in net for the Oilers tonight. In his last ten starts Talbot has posted a 0.925 save percentage.
