The Edmonton Oilers take a four game winning streak into tonight’s game against the Canucks in Vancouver. The Canucks had a four game winning streak of their own to start the season but have since lost three straight.
Oilers head coach Todd McLellan expects the Canucks to be a challenge defensively.
“They are positionally sound and they are committed to doing it. They don’t give up many goals,” says Oilers head coach Todd McLellan. “Teams that have opened it up and got sloppy against the Canucks have paid for it. Other teams that have stayed patient have had success.”
The Canucks will go with Ryan Miller in goal. The Oilers counter with Cam Talbot. The Oilers will roll with the same lineup that beat the Capitals 4-1 on Wednesday night.
Game time tonight from Vancouver is 8pm. You can hear the game live on 630 CHED following the Eskimos broadcast from Hamilton. (bu)
