Up for grabs is another two points as Edmonton (55 points) looks to keep up with the Anaheim Ducks, who top the Pacific Division with 59."Their backend, I think, leads the League in shots on goal for d-men. There's a huge challenge there," said Oilers Head Mentor Todd McLellan. "They generate a lot from the top and have the ability to create chances off of it, and their forwards approach the game very workmanlike. There's nothing easy about their recreation. They've got some pace, they play hard, aggre sive forecheck, and their penalty kill has been exceptional."As the grind of the season wears on, the Oilers have shown, as of late, an ability to win tight games. Seven of the Oilers last nine wins have been decided by just 1 goal. Edmonton is also riding a three-game win streak, and has at least a point in 11 of their last 14 contests."I think we're settled in now. The last 3 games were huge for us," said Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl.As they look to maintain their momentum, the Oilers have a lot to engage in for moving forward. Oilers winger Jordan Eberle has been with the club, in the NHL, since 2010 and he can't remember a a lot more fun time this late in the season."It's exciting. It's the most fun I've had in the NHL. You actually enjoy searching at the standings and having the chance to be in that spot with the games we have left. It's definitely made going out in Edmonton a lot a lot more enjoyable."CLOSING IN ON 100Draisaitl and Connor McDavid are closing in on the career milestone, one they could achieve together. The two, playing to the same line, could connect for their 100th career NHL points."It's rewarding and nice to have that little milestone," said Draisaitl. "I think both of us, we obviously hope there's many far more to come."Draisaitl has 99 in 155 games, while McDavid has 99 in 91."It would be nice, obviously, if we could get it to the same goal. But that's not where our head is right now," Draisaitl said. "We want to win this game, it's a big sport for us and that's what we're worried about."TALBOT STARTS AGAINThe term "workhorse" is accurate when speaking of Oilers goaltender Cam Talbot. The netminder leads the league in starts (41), saves (1,115) and minutes played (2,458:48). He is second in wins with 23.The Oilers use Talbot as much as po sible, and likely won't change those tactics much moving forward."We feel like we have a schedule, other than the back-to-backs coming up, that allows us to do that, providing he maintains his health and level of perform," said McLellan. "We've got an All-Star <a href="https://www.styleoilers.com/edmonton-oilers-jersey/grant-fuhr-jersey" title="https://www.styleoilers.com/edmonton-oilers-jersey/grant-fuhr-jersey">https://www.styleoilers.com/edmonton-oilers-jersey/grant-fuhr-jersey</a> break, we come again for four and then we have another five-day break. Then, it changes a little bit. We're not laying it out week-by-week or month-by-month, we're searching at it in 1 or two-game segments."Talbot gets the nod tonight against Florida for his 42nd start. He shows no signs of breaking down and Edmonton is confident in riding their number one particular."He wants to enjoy every night," said McLellan. "There's no sign of him coming in and 'I'm tired, I'm sick, I'm sore' both physically and mentally, so we're comfortable with it right now."-- Chris Wescott, edmontonoilers.comPREVIEWOILERS (24-15-7) vs. PANTHERS (20-18-8)TV: 7:30 p.m. MST; Televised on Sportsnet WestHead-to-Head:Tonight's sport is the first of two meetings between the Oilers and Panthers this season and the lone game in Edmonton.
