Edmonton Oilers make significant line changes ahead of elimination game

The Edmonton Oilers are in the fight for their lives tonight heading to LA for game 6 against the Kings.

On paper, the Oilers should have blown the Kings out of the water, but the Kings have played some great shutdown hockey and currently have the lead 3-2 in the series.

Last game, the Oilers stud defenceman Darnell Nurse received a one-game suspension for head-butting, so in a crucial game, the Oilers are down their best defenceman and were forced to make some lineup changes.

Most significant is putting McDavid and Draisaitl together. It looks like the Oilers are trying to stack their top 6 in hopes to rack up the score.




I dont know about you, but seeing Ceci and Kulak as the teams top defence pair tonight is a little worrisome.

Can the Oilers force a game 7, or will they be knocked out in 6, forcing the McDavid trade rumours.
