The Oilers are fresh off a thrilling 5-3 victory over the Thrashers in which the Oilers battled back from a 3-1 deficit. The Oilers got some life on their powerplay finally (including a 5-on-3 goal.. at long last) thanks in part to Taylor Hall’s first career hattrick. All 3 were scored on the powerplay, in the same period, and unanswered. Hemsky put the final nail in the coffin with an empty net goal. Tonight the Oilers head into enemy territory and face a team that they’ve struggled with for a while now, especially in their building. The Oilers are 0-3 this year too against the Wild.
Will the Oilers continue to ride the high?
Prediction: 4-2 Wild
