Game #4 – Oilers vs. Hawks: Lineups & How Teams Were Built

Notes: EdMo hasn’t lost but come in with a 103 PDO, which is sure to last…as you might have guessed, the Oilers have scored twice as many goals with Draisaitl and McDavid on the ice as they’ve given up, but have given up more than they’ve scored when they’re not…the Klefbom-Persson pairing has actually been highly effective, so watch out for them…Nurse is getting top pairing assignments that we thought he was always destined for. Is it finally time for him?…Yes, you read that right. Neal has seven goals. Three of which came in one game, and he’s shooting near 40%. That’s sure to continue…

Notes: Perlini was actually effective on the fourth-line against Winnipeg, but only got eight minutes and the Hawks are going to do everything they can to give Nylander a chance to prove he’s something other than a tomato can…The Kampf line had their first rough night on Saturday, even if Saad produced the shorty. It’s still not clear how Colliton wants to use them…On the plus side, Keith and Murphy actually looked like a real pairing for the first time…
