We are getting down to crunch time. The Oilers who are battling for jobs have three games to make a final strong impression for Todd McLellan.

Eric Gryba is battling for a contract. Anton Lander is vying to keep a spot in the NHL. Nail Yakupov wants to keep his spot in the top-nine, while Jesse Puljujarvi,Griffin Reinhart, Tyler Pitlick, Dillon Simpson and Anton Slepyshev are hoping to earn a spot on the 23-man roster.
