If the Oilers can win tonight they’d finish the trip with a 2-3-1 record. While it’s not a desirable result, it would be much better than coming home with a 1-4-1 record. They’ll be in tough tonight however with the Canadiens at home, a place they always play well at.
What a difference a couple of days can make. Oilers first road win of the season in Ottawa on Saturday, the team’s roster has seen players come and players go. Injuries have been the majority of moves which in turn provide opportunities for younger players or seasoned veterans looking for a second chance. Throw in a trade sandwiched in the middle of the roster moves and suddenly this Oilers lineup for tonight’s game against the Canadiens has a different look to it, at least from a forwards perspective.
Let’s take a look at the lineups, followed by some note worthy items.
