After a week on the sideline, the Edmonton Oilers will finally be back in action tonight as they face off against the Winnipeg Jets as the late early game on Hockey Night in Canada.
With Friday night’s game in Vancouver getting postponed, the Oilers have now had a full week off since they last played. They’ll head to Winnipeg on Saturday night for a Hockey Night in Canada match with the Jets.

Welcome, dear Internet friends, to a brand new GDB that’s here to help us all get prepared for the second game of the mini-series between our beloved Edmonton Oilers and the Winnipeg Jets.
