The Edmonton Oilers have another preseason game tonight. This time, take on the Seattle Kraken for the first time in franchise history.
The Seattle Kraken faced the Vancouver Canucks to start their preseason a few days ago, winning 5-3 at home. You can bet the Edmonton Oilers will be a little harder to face tonight.
The Kraken will be playing their first away game, so this is the first time the franchise has entered an opposing stadium for a preseason game. For a little enemy reconnaissance report, check out our friends at Kraken Chronicle.
The Edmonton Oilers will face many stars in tonight’s game:
On the Seattle side, you can read about their roster and all there is to know about the Kraken Chronicle opponent. The biggest test for the Oilers tonight will likely be the Seattle goalie. Philipp Grubauer and Chris Driedger are two very skilled goalies, and while Edmonton is a very good attacking team, goalies have been able to stop them in the past.
Getting shots on the net and getting redirects is going to be important tonight. The Oilers are capable of scoring great goals, but what matters most right now against a good Grubauer goalkeeper is trying to build traffic and score goals that skilled goaltenders can’t stop.
I’m also excited to watch the power play tonight. Edmonton scored a power-play goal in Game 1 after getting a ton of chances, but it wasn’t with the main power-play players. Tonight, with McDavid, Draisaitl and Nugent-Hopkins, just about every element of the Oilers’ high-danger power play is available and might as well start scoring goals now.
