2. Edmonton Oilers (Nov. 19)


The Blue Jackets have also had some trouble at Rexall Place in the last few years, but coincidentally, so has the home team in Edmonton this season. It has been a disastrous start for the Oilers in their first season under new coach Dallas Eakins, and their play on home ice has been particularly concerning. For the Blue Jackets to start their Alberta jaunt with two points, they'll need a quick start to slow down the Oilers' attack and get them off their game; the speed and creativity of the Oiler forwards has given the Jackets defense fits - especially in Edmonton - but if the visitors play their game, they should get their share of chances.
