Coming off one of their most complete performances of the season on the weekend, the Oilers will look to keep the ball rolling tonight as they host the Montreal Canadiens for the first of two games. Tonight also marks the Oilers’ first home game in 17 days. The Oilers should be feeling good heading into this hockey game while the Habs might not be the most confident group right now considering they have just two wins in their last seven games. At the same time, the Canadiens have absolutely had the Oilers number so far this season. They’ve won four of the five matchups in the season series and have held Connor McDavid and Leon Draisaitl to just two points each in those games. The Oilers will look to break through as they begin a two-game set against Montreal.
I go through the expected lines, keys to the game, and more in today’s 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! Enjoy the game!
