News
Sekera contributed a goal and two assists in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Avalanche.

Sekera scored his eighth goal with 31 seconds left in the opening frame, then piled on two assists during his team's five-goal third-period barrage. He set a season high with three points, and this was the veteran blueliner's first multi-point effort since a two-goal performance on Jan. 26. Sekera's plus-2 rating also pushed his season mark to plus-10, which is just one tick short of his 2010-11 career best.

News
Maroon set up two goals in a 4-3 loss Wednesday to Anaheim.

Maroon has been chugging along nicely lately, ringing up seven points in his last five contests. He's been a bit goal-heavy this year (25 compared to just 14 assists), but it's indisputable that the former Duck has easily had the best season of his career, obliterating his previous personal best of 11 goals thanks to the elite dishing ability of linemate Connor McDavid.

News
Eberle finished with two goals and an assist in Thursday's 7-4 win over Colorado.

Eberle lit the lamp twice in a wild third period that saw his team erase a 4-2 deficit with five unanswered goals. Connor McDavid assisted on both of his tallies after coach Todd McLellan reunited the duo in an attempt to ignite the offense. Eberle's value would receive a substantial boost if this change remains permanent, as his struggles without the Hart Trophy candidate by his side have been well documented.

News
Talbot was pulled after allowing four goals on 15 shots Thursday in Colorado.

Talbot has now been yanked in consecutive outings after earning shutout victories in his previous two. While Wednesday's hiccup against the Ducks was understandable, giving up four goals in two periods to the league's worst offense is not so easy to forgive with just five points separating first and fourth in the Pacific Division. His team managed to turn a 4-2 deficit into a 7-4 victory after Laurent Brossoit came in, taking the starting goalie off the hook.

News
Nugent-Hopkins dished out two helpers in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Avalanche.

It looked like Nugent-Hopkins was going to miss out on all the fun, but his late contributions were key to this comeback victory. His first assist came on Drake Caggiula's game-winner with 2:11 to play, while his second came on a Leon Draisaitl empty-netter 90 seconds later. Nugent-Hopkins came in with just two points in his past nine games, but his scoring rate will likely rise if Draisaitl's move to the second line in place of Jordan Eberle extends beyond the third period of this contest.

News
Brossoit will defend the cage from the Avalanche as Saturday's home starter, Jack Michaels of the Oilers Radio Network reports.

What kind of parallel universe do we live in with Cam Talbot not getting the start for Edmonton here? We kid, we kid -- Talbot's leading the league with an astounding 3,933 minutes behind the pipes, but Brossoit gets the starting nod after having to relieve the busy tender last time out. A native of British Columbia, Brossoit has gone 2-1-0 with a shiny 2.26 GAA and .928 save percentage over a career-high six games this campaign. He'll be a sneaky daily play given his status as the backup and fielding shots against an Avalanche team with a goal differential of minus-101 (yeah, you read that properly).

News
Draisaitl finished with a goal and an assist in Thursday's 7-4 win over Colorado.

Draisaitl was quiet for most of this one, but got going late after being demoted to the second line. He helped set up Drake Caggiula's game-winning goal with just over two minutes left, then added an empty-netter in the final minute. The red-hot forward has posted six consecutive multi-point outings, with three goals and 10 assists in that span.

News
McDavid dished out two assists Thursday against the Avalanche.

Both of McDavid's helpers came on goals by Jordan Eberle, who replaced Leon Draisaitl on his right wing for the final frame. The line shuffling by coach Todd McLellan certainly worked, helping his team avoid an embarrassing loss to last-place Colorado with a five-goal third period. McDavid's recent surge has given him a cushion in the scoring race, as he sits six points up on both Sidney Crosby and Patrick Kane.

News
Slepyshev will be in the lineup Wednesday night, replacing Matt Hendricks on the fourth line, Jack Michaels of Oilers Radio Network reports.

Slepyshev has drawn into half of Edmonton's games this season (36 to be exact), pitching in four goals and six assists. The lanky forward has made strides defensively, going from minus-5 last year to plus-5 this campaign.

News
Caggiula scored a goal and added an assist Thursday in Colorado.

Caggiula's goal with 2:11 to play broke a 4-4 tie, and ultimately stood up as the game-winner as his team rallied from 4-2 down to win 7-4. He has four points in the past six games after going 13 without one.
