Game Preview

The Edmonton Oilers only trail their Western Conference semifinal series 2-1 heading into Tuesday’s home clash against the Vancouver Canucks.

Yet the Oilers are staring at two big, age-old questions about their team — goaltending and depth — as they feel the pressure to pull even before the series gets out of hand.

Coming off Sunday’s 4-3 home loss, coach Kris Knoblauch apparently has found the answer to one of the questions. He is starting backup Calvin Pickard instead of No. 1 netminder Stuart Skinner, who surrendered four goals on 15 shots before being pulled, in Game 4, the Daily Faceoff reported Tuesday.
