As the Edmonton Oilers take on the Nashville Predators tonight with an 0-2 record, it’s safe to say that this game is an almost must-win for the Oilers. There are several reasons why this game is so crucial for the team’s success this season.
0-3 Doesn’t Make Things Any Easier Moving Forward

Falling behind early could make it difficult for the Oilers to secure a playoff spot, especially in the highly competitive Pacific Division.

After losing their first two games of the season, the team will be eager to prove that they can compete against the teams in the league.
