Edmonton comes into this game on a three game losing streak (though two have been in OT/SO) and riding an offense that hasn’t been as prolific as expected. The Oilers have scored two or fewer goals in four straight games and has dropped three of them as a result.

Rookie sensation Nail Yakupov leads the team with five goals and most awesome celebrations.
