After winning their eighth straight game over the Ottawa Senators last night, the Oilers will look to complete the season sweep tonight with their second straight game in the nation’s capital. It’s been a dominant stretch for Edmonton but last night’s win was closer than any of the others this season. They needed a really strong game from both Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl as well as some huge saves from Mikko Koskinen down the stretch. The Oilers have been very good in the second half of back-to-backs this season and the Sens just can’t buy a break against Edmonton but can a ninth straight game really go the Oiler’s way? At some point the law of averages has to come into play, RIGHT?
I went through yesterday’s game, looked into some possible lineup changes for tonight, and more in the Pre Game Podcast (brought to you by YEG Burger & Nation Beer)!
