One of the interesting little mini-battles that caught my eye in Tuesday’s 4-2 Oilers win over Los Angeles was the conflict between Kings captain Dustin Brown and Edmonton’s third line. Brown caught third-line pivot Anton Lander with a hard check early in the game, and Lander and his linemates seemingly never let that go.

Evgeny Svechnikov is a big, strong and skilled forward eligible for the 2015 draft. He is ranked No. 15 on the latest Craig Button list and he's rising in many quarters. The young Russian is absolutely a quality prospect.

This is a classic David vs. Goliath matchup.
The LA Kings have won two of the past three Stanley Cups.
They've been to three consecutive Western Conference Finals.
They are 7-0-1 vs. the Oilers over the past two seasons, outscoring Edmonton 32-10 and out shooting them 313-192.
Compile that with the Oilers dressing an extremely inexperienced defence corps, and this is a monumental challenge for the Oilers.

The Edmonton Oilers made a move on Monday, activating winger Tyler Pitlick off injured reserve and re-assigning Andrew Miller to Oklahoma City to make space on the roster for him.
