The Edmonton Oilers play game three of their four-game homestand as they host the Buffalo Sabres to Rogers Place. It also marks the return of Head Coach Ralph Kreuger to Edmonton.
The Oilers get a big boost tonight as they welcome back Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Zack Kassian to the lineup, which means Gagner and Patrick Russell are the odd-men out. Another big advantage for the Oil is that their #1 powerplay faces Buffalo’s 30th ranked PK unit and 31st on the road. Edmonton looks to win their second straight game with Mike Smith getting the nod between the pipes. Puck drop from Ice District just after 6pm MT.
