On Thursday, the Oilers lost by a score of 5-1 to the Los Angeles Kings. Tonight, they look to bounce back in Vegas with a much needed win.
Mike Smith will once again get the start in front of the Oilers' net after letting in 5 goals on Thursday. Koskinen will be his backup.
Patrick Russell will make his way back into Edmonton's lineup as he replaces Joakim Nygard on the 3rd offensive line. Nygard is set to be a healthy scratch tonight.
The rest of the Oilers' line combinations and defensive pairings should look identical to the ones that hit the ice in Los Angeles earlier this week.
Here is Edmonton's projected lineup for tonight's game against the Vegas Golden Knights according to NHL.com correspondent Danny Webster:
Leon Draisaitl - Connor McDavid - Zack Kassian
Jujhar Khaira - Ryan Nugent-Hopkins - James Neal
Patrick Russell - Riley Sheahan - Josh Archibald
Markus Granlund - Gaetan Haas - Alex Chiasson
Darnell Nurse - Ethan Bear
Oscar Klefbom - Caleb Jones
Kris Russell - Adam Larsson
Joakim Nygard and Sam Gagner are set to be healthy scratches while Matt Benning and Brandon Manning are still out with injuries.
