NBCSN’s coverage of the 2018-19 NHL season continues with the Wednesday Night Hockey matchup between the New Jersey Devils and Edmonton Oilers. Coverage begins at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBCSN. You can watch the game online and on the NBC Sports app by clicking here.

The Edmonton Oilers can get within four points of a playoff spot with a win tonight.

That seems crazy, but then again, nothing has been normal about the race to the final one or two wildcard spots in the Western Conference this season. The Oilers have been flying recently, winning seven of their past 10 games.

A big part of their recent success has been the play of Leon Draisaitl, who has put together a 14-game point streak, scoring 10 goals and adding 13 helpers during that time.

The Devils, meanwhile, could be put out of their misery with a loss.

New Jersey will be eliminated from playoff contention if they lose in any form tonight. If that was to occur, it would be their eighth straight ‘L’, a season-long for them. The Devils blew a 3-1 lead on Tuesday, eventually losing 9-4 after giving up six straight goals in the third period. Yikes.

PHT’s Joey Alfieri took a deeper look at the Devils’ woes earlier today.
