EL SEGUNDO, Calif. -- The Edmonton Oilers will make some lineup changes when they play the Los Angeles Kings on Thursday at Staples Center, said coach Todd McLellan, according to the Oilers' Twitter account.
The Oilers, who have lost a season-high five straight (0-4-1), held an optional skate at Staples Center, and it was unclear what changes would take place. It will be their first game since McLellan questioned his team's character and whether many of his players should be with the team beyond the NHL Trade Deadline on Monday.
