GDB +3.0: Backs Against the Wall (5:30pm MT, CBC)

I know that today’s game doesn’t technically count as a must-win situation for the Edmonton Oilers, but it’s about as close as it gets since going down 3-0 in the series would be nothing short of disastrous.

After playing each other nine times in the past four months, the Edmonton Oilers and Winnipeg Jets aren’t expecting any major surprises from the opposition. “They might make some small adjustments after the success we had against them, but I don’t think you will see major changes,” said Oilers blueliner Tyson Barrie. So what might…
