Tonight, the Tampa Bay Lightning take on the Edmonton Oilers at 10 PM ET.
The Tampa Bay Lightning will go into tonight’s game with a standing of 27-7-2. They have won 9 out of their last 10 games with a 2 win streak and they currently lead their division with 56 points this season. Nikita Kucherov currently leads the team with an impressive 52 points from 15 goals and 37 assists.
The Edmonton Oilers hold a current record of 18-14-3. They have won 6 out of their last 10 games and have a 2 loss streak. They have 39 points so far this season. Leading the Edmonton Oilers is Conner McDavid with 49 points from 19 goals and 30 assists. Many fans are excited about the potential behind McDavid, quickly making him a fan favorite of the Oilers. Even Wayne Gretzky has made comment on Conner McDavid’s success potential, comparing him to some of the greatest names in NHL history.
“I don’t think there’s any question that Connor’s the best 19-year-old hockey player I’ve ever seen, and I saw (Mark) Messier. I saw (Mario) Lemieux. I saw (Guy) Lafleur. This kid is special.”
The Tampa Bay Lightning have maintained a strong record this season, but there is no doubt the Oilers still have great potential in tonight’s game. In their last match, the Lightning beat the Oilers 5-2. Will the Oilers win at home tonight and reclaim victory over the Lightning or will the Lightning strike them down in Edmonton?
