After a very short stint at home, the Oilers are back on the road once again this week. They start a three-game road trip tonight in Montreal against a Habs team that has played them very well so far this season. The Canadiens are now 3-1-0 against the Oilers and a big reason why they’ve had so much success is that they’ve been able to shut down both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl better than any other team in this division. The Oiler’s big guns will look to get rolling tonight as the team looks for their second straight victory. Thanks to a win on Saturday over the Flames, the Oilers are basically locked into a playoff spot but if they want home-ice advantage in round one, winning games against Montreal will go a long way.
The Oilers will be running with the same lineup that won the game on Friday against Calgary tonight. I get you set for this matchup with another Pre-Game Podcast (brought to you by YEG Burger & Nation Beer)! You can download it right here in the article or by heading to Apple Podcasts or Spotify!
