There is massive changes in the Edmonton Oilers’ line-up, with coach Dave Tippett going for speed over grit in a must-win game.
Out are slower vets Alex Chiasson, Dominik Kahun and James Neal. In are speedy forwards Gaetan Haas, Tyler Ennis and Devin Shore.
We apologize, but this video has failed to load.
Also of note is that Tyson Barrie, who has struggled immensely on defence, has been bumped down to the third pairing, while Ryan McLeod and Zack Kassian have been promoted to second line centre.
As Bob Stauffer of the Oilers reports:
Oilers morning skate:
from an “eye-in-the-sky”
More to come
