Oilers aim to even the score vs. Wild in Minnesota

After falling behind early in back-to-back home losses to Buffalo and Carolina, the Edmonton Oilers will be looking for a quick start when they face the Minnesota Wild on Thursday night in Saint Paul, Minn.

The Oilers, who have lost five of their past seven and just finished a 1-2-1 homestand with a 6-3 loss to Carolina on Tuesday night, still enter the contest tied for first place in the Pacific Division with the Arizona Coyotes, both of whom have identical 18-11-4 records.

Edmonton fell behind 2-0 in the first period in an eventual 3-2 overtime loss to Buffalo on Sunday and then trailed 3-0 to the Hurricanes after 20 minutes on Tuesday. The Oilers rallied to tie that contest, 3-3, on a Zack Kassian goal at the 5:40 mark of the third period but Carolina answered with three goals over a six-minute span to win going away.
