Sam Gagner returns to the lineup after missing the first 13 games of the season with a broken jaw. He should give the Oilers special teams a boost.
Gagner was tied for the team lead in PP points last year with 15. He can move the puck quickly and accurately. He also was on the PK last year, and he should help a floudering PK unit, by having the experience to be in the right lane on the PK.

The Edmonton Oilers have been looking all season for somebody they could count on to play moderately well in net. They didn’t necessarily need a goalie to steal them games, just competent performances that would give the team a chance to win.
They got a lot more than that last night from Richard Bachman.
