Game Day 45: Oilers vs Habs
There are many questions about what line-up and line combinations the Edmonton Oilers will go with tonight against the Montreal Canadiens, but on Oilers Now host Bob Stauffer suggested the following possibilities:
- That Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is likely back in after his concussions and, even better from my own perspective, he might come back into the line-up on a line with Leon Draisaitl and Kailer Yamamoto.
- That Oilers coach Dave Tippett might keep in place a top line of Josh Archibald, Connor McDavid and Jesse Puljujarvi.
- That Ethan Bear and Darnell Nurse had some success and might well be paired up.
- That Joakim Nygard might be hurt, so James Neal could be recalled from the Taxi Squad on an emergency basis.
