Since we last tangled with the Edmonton Oilers...
OUT: Potter (concussion), Smid (neck), Petry (face). Hemsky (shoulder) did not finish the game against the Ducks.

Despite their loss to the Kings last week, the Oilers haven't been in tank-mode, even with a depleted blue line. But there can be no excuses tonight. The Kings need to play physical, aggressive, and yet disciplined hockey. A regulation win would boost their odds of making it to the postseason to 95%.
