The Edmonton Oilers continue their pre-season Sunday night with a showdown against the L.A. Kings in Vernon, B.C.
The near-by town of Lumby won the Kraft Hockeyville contest. Kal Tire Place in Vernon will be the site for the game.
“I think it’s a tremendous opportunity for the community to show off their enthusiasm,” says Oilers head coach Todd McLellan. “The support and enthusiasm at the pre-game skate this morning was noticeable.”
The line of Milan Lucic, Connor McDavid, and Jordan Eberle will play together for the second time. The trio was held off the score sheet Wednesday in Vancouver.
“If they play the game same game they played in Vancouver and finish off their chances, they’ll be fine,” says McLellan.
The Oilers expected lineup is:
Catch the action on 630 CHED with the Face-off Show at 5:30pm and the game starting at 7pm. (jrw)
