For just the second time this season, the Edmonton Oilers are looking to bounce back from a loss. After dropping a tough 1-0 shootout decision to the @Winnipeg Jets on Sunday night, they wrap up their two-game road trip tonight in Minnesota.
How concerned are you about the #Oilers bottom six?

While the Oilers have been enjoying a really good run to start the season, the Wild have been one of the biggest disappointments in the NHL. They’re 2-6-0 and currently sit dead-last in the Western Conference. They are coming off a win over the Montreal Canadiens and as is usually the case, a struggling team that is playing in front of their home crowd is often a very motivated group. This is a game that the Oilers should win but they absolutely need to come out of the gates strong. Historically, the Oilers have a tendency to play down to their opponents. Tonight, I’ll be looking for them to show a bit of killer instinct against a rather weak opponent.
I went through how these two teams match up against each other, three things I’m looking for from the Oilers, and gave my ‘Bet of the Game’ which is a segment that might be re-named to ‘Fade Yaremchuk’ if I don’t start nailing some of these bets.
