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.

Compile that with the Oilers dressing an extremely inexperienced defence corps, and this is a monumental challenge for the Oilers.
