The Oilers begin a four-game set against the Vancouver Canucks tonight as they head down the stretch and look to finish their regular season on a high note. The Oilers have been the best team in the North over the last ten games, with seven wins, while the Canucks have been the exact opposite, winning just three of their last ten. Tonight could also very well be “clinch-mas” for the Oilers. If they just bring the game to overtime, they will officially lock up a playoff spot for just the third time in the last decade. Of course, the 100 point mark is still very much in reach for Connor McDavid and the Oilers are looking to grab home-ice advantage in round one of the playoffs on top of that. There is still plenty for the Oilers to play for in their final seven regular-season games.
