OILERS (28-18-6) at COYOTES (26-21-7)
9 p.m. ET; ESPN+, SN1, FS-A, FS-A PLUS, NHL.TV
Leon Draisaitl can extend his streak of multipoint games to an NHL career high-tying six when the Edmonton Oilers play the Arizona Coyotes at Gila River Arena on Tuesday.
Draisaitl, who leads the NHL with 83 points (29 goals, 54 assists), has 13 points (four goals, nine assists) in the past five games. He also has 22 points (seven goals, 15 assists) during an 11-game point streak. Draisaitl had a six-game multipoint streak from March 14-23, 2017.
The Oilers are 8-1-2 in their past 11 games, which corresponded with Draisaitl being moved from the wing on Connor McDavid's line to center between Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Kailer Yamamoto.
Arizona will be without defenseman Oliver Ekman-Larsson for a second consecutive game because of a lower-body injury. He tweaked the injury during practice Monday and is considered day to day.
The Coyotes are on a season-long five-game winless streak (0-3-2) and are 1-5-3 in their past nine games.
Players to watch
Oilers forward Ryan Nugent-Hopkins has 17 points (seven goals, 10 assists) in 11 games on a line with Draisaitl.
Coyotes forward Taylor Hall has nine points (four goals, five assists) in his past seven games.
They said it
"We've built some chemistry with our line and the puck's been going in for us, and that's always nice and makes it easier. We work well off each other and we compete hard. It's fun and hopefully we can keep it going." -- Oilers forward Leon Draisaitl
"The timely goals aren't there right now. When it's 1-1 and we can make it 2-1 and 3-1, we're having a tough time finding that. We need people to step up and make these plays in these moments." -- Coyotes coach Rick Tocchet
