After a huge win on Saturday night against the Jets, the Oilers begin a three-game road trip through the Central Division. Tonight, they’ll look to complete the season sweep of the Nashville Predators. They picked up two wins against the Predators already this season and Leon Draisaitl has been a big reason why. His two third period goals propelled them to a victory back in February and he had three points when the Oilers won in January. In his last five games against Nashville, Leon has 14 points. He loves playing against this team and the Oilers will need him to produce tonight if they want to beat a Preds team that has won three of their last four games.
The Oilers will also welcome Kailer Yamamoto back to the lineup tonight and there is more good injury news coming as both Oscar Klefbom and James Neal are expected to play at some point on this road trip. The Oilers will also have a new-look top line tonight as they begin a tough stretch of road games.
