Offensive firepower keys Oilers-Panthers matchup

Three of the NHL's top four scorers are ticketed for Edmonton on Thursday night when the Oilers play host to the Florida Panthers.

Florida's Jonathan Huberdeau has 53 points, tied with Edmonton's Connor McDavid for third place in the league. Edmonton's Leon Draisaitl has 54 points, which ranks second.

Despite having those two superstars, Edmonton has lost six straight games (0-4-2). The Oilers haven't won this calendar year. They haven't beaten anyone since a 5-3 triumph over the expansion Seattle Kraken on Dec. 18, and they haven't tasted victory at home since defeating the Columbus Blue Jackets 5-2 on Dec. 16.
