Inside the Nation: Opening Day

It’s Tuesday afternoon, the start of the regular season is only hours away, and Dusty Nielson is coming to you live from Facebook to make sense of all things Edmonton Oilers.

Next up, Dusty looked at the line combinations for tonight’s game and wondered whether there’s anyone in the NHL with a better opportunity than Joakim Nygard, who will be slotting in alongside @Connor McDavid against Vancouver. Getting away from the forwards, the defensive pairings are still a question mark for many Oilers fans and it will be interesting to see how Tippett will deploy his defencemen as the season moves forward. Will Matt Benning stick with Kris Russell? Will it be Ethan Bear?
