Edmonton Oilers

The Oilers are inching closer to gaining the top spot in the Pacific. Trailing the Calgary Flames by just a single point, NHL fans can expect Edmonton to go full throttle when they visit the Kraken in Seattle on Friday. The squad has won three straight and five of their last six games, majority of which resulted in dominant fashion. Coach Dave Tippett is pleased with the way his team has been performing, but he also knows that now is not the time to let go of the gas pedal. The Oilers are favored on the road against the Kraken given their current position in the standings, but complacency could also hit them in a snap. As such, Tippett will have his game plan set as he expects his players to execute well.

Players to watch: L. Draisaitl C (G 20, A 21, PTS 41), C. McDavid C (G 15, A 15, PTS 40), R. Nugent-Hopkins C (G 2, A 18, PTS 20).

Seattle Kraken

The Kraken are heading back home from a rigorous four-game trip where they were able to notch two wins. It was a commendable stretch to say the least, but the team remains one of the bottom teams in the Pacific. Hosting the Oilers on Friday, the Kraken are looking to score its first divisional wins. The team knows that it will be a tall order, but they also recognize that a win against one of the top teams in the league could be a huge boost in their campaign this year. 

Players to watch: J. Kyrou C (G 9, A 14, PTS 23), R. Thomas C (G 2, A 18, PTS 20), V. Tarasenko RW (G 7, A 12, PTS 19).
