After a brief road trip to the mile high city, the Oilers are back home again. The Oilers have enjoyed home ice so far this season and another win would go a long way. They could use the continuation of the win streak to further build momentum before going on the road for 6 games.
After handing the reins to Khabi early on, Dubnyk slotted in Friday night and had an impressive 40 save performance in the win. Hopefully the two can continue to make the starter role a tough decision for management with their solid play.
The Blues are playing .500 hockey right now and are struggling on the powerplay. Combined with the Oilers current success on the P/K, I’d say we have a pretty solid chance of recording another win tonight.
Alex Plante has been recalled from OKC, and should be in town with plenty of time to slot in tonight since the goon Sutton is out of the lineup.
Will post lines when something is made public, but don’t expect too much shuffling with lines that are clicking.
