NASHVILLE, TN - The Oilers will open up a three-game road trip in Nashville on Monday night as the club aims for the season sweep of the Predators.
The Oilers took both of the two teams' previous meetings at Rogers Place earlier in the season and are 3-0-1 against the Predators in their last four contests.
Leon Draisaitl eclipsed the 100-point mark with two goals and an assist in a 3-2 victory over the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night, with linemate Ryan Nugent-Hopkins scoring the game-winning goal and adding two helpers.
The tandem will be bolstered by the return of Kailer Yamamoto on their wing after having success as a line since Yamamoto's recall in late December. Josh Archibald will take to the top line with Connor McDavid and Tyler Ennis.
