Adam Larsson experienced it last Saturday, playing his first game in his old city against his former team. "It was awkward, and I think tonight will be much easier for me," he said.
Tonight Taylor Hall will return to Edmonton for the first time, and after playing the Oilers on Saturday, Hall thinks tonight will be easier for him, although he admitted it has been different being back in Edmonton for the first time since the trade.
"I've never stayed in a hotel in Edmonton," he laughed. "The game isn't about me. We need a win and hopefully we can start the road trip on a good note."

Brandon Davidson missed a couple games due to
a sore tummy sickness and we went 0-2. Better than a shoulder injury I guess. No need to fear, he just needed a few days off and he'll be back in the lineup tonight against New Jersey.

Over the last 10 games, Patrick Maroon has scored seven even-strength goals, which is a fantastic total. The remainder of the Edmonton Oilers roster has scored just 10, which is a much less impressive number.

"Last night wasn't our best effort, mine in particular, so we have to move forward and focus on tomorrow," Cam Talbot said today after practice. Talbot hasn't had many off nights, but last night was one of them. It was a game where his teammates should have bailed him out and scored five or six, because on many nights he's been a main reason they've won games.
Talbot didn't shy away from his off-night. He owned up to it and he discussed with me what went wrong.
