The Edmonton Oilers take the ice against the Carolina Panthers in NHL hockey action Tuesday night. The Oilers probably want to get back on the ice and erase the memory of Sunday’s 6-2 shellacking at the hands of the visiting Sabres. Buffalo was clicking at both ends of the ice and especially at the offensive end with Ryan O’Reilly scoring twice and adding a pair of helpers with Brian Gionta also scoring two times. Kyle Okposo and Matt Moulson also lit the lamp while Robin Lehner stopped 31 shots in the victory. The Oilers goals came from Benoit Pouliot and Milan Lucic but Cam Talbot was charged with all six goals on just 23 shots in the loss.
