The Edmonton Oilers wrap up their preseason schedule tonight when they take on the Vancouver Canucks at Rexall Place.

After opening the preseason with a 3-0-0 record, the Oilers are winless in their last four as they have experimented with a number of different lineups. Tonight will be no different as the club will go with a different look once again as head coach Pat Quinn attempts to finalize the team's roster.

The lineup will feature a number of top-line offensive talents in addition to the supporting cast, however. Cogliano, Gagner, Hemsky, Horcoff, O'Sullivan, Penner and Comrie are all slated to play in addition to goaltender Nikolai Khabibulin.

Vancouver has had a very successful preseason with a 7-0-1 record through eight games. A thinner lineup managed to battle back and defeat what was essentially the opening-night lineup of the Calgary Flames last night 2-1 in a shootout.

This evening, the Canucks will dress more of their starters including the Sedins, Alex Burrows, Steve Bernier, Kyle Wellwood and most of their starting defence core.

Edmonton fell 3-1 to the Canucks on Saturday, September 19 with Cody Hodgson potting an empty-net goal.
