  • Offers helper in loss
    Bouchard notched an assist, two shots on goal, two hits and two blocked shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 3.

  • Scores in return
    Henrique scored a goal and added four hits in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 3.

    Advice: Henrique missed seven games with an ankle injury and returned to a third-line role, playing 13:41 in this contest. He scored a goal late in the second period to tie the game at 3-3, but the Oilers' offense stopped there. Henrique has three points, five shots on net, 26 hits and an even plus-minus rating through seven playoff appearances. He's played in a variety of spots in the Oilers' lineup -- if the team continues to struggle, he may be moved from third-line center to a top-six spot on the wing. Rotowire.com Today, 9:17 pm
  • Knocks in goal
    Hyman scored a goal on seven shots, blocked two shots and added two PIM in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 3.

    Advice: Connor McDavid took a shot that banked in off Hyman's body at 2:02 of the first period. With four goals and an assist over his last five games, Hyman's offense is humming along at a fine pace. He's up to 13 tallies, 16 points, 63 shots on net, 34 hits and a plus-7 rating through 15 playoff contests while filling a top-line role. Rotowire.com Today, 9:14 pm
  • One of each Monday
    McDavid scored a goal on six shots, dished an assist and added three hits in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 3.

    Advice: McDavid was pulling the strings in the first period, banking a shot in off Zach Hyman for the opening goal before scoring one of his own. The Stars bounced back in the second, and McDavid had no further involvement in the scoring. The superstar center is up to four goals, 21 assists, 43 shots on net, 32 hits and a plus-5 rating through 15 playoff outings. Two of his tallies have come in the Western Conference Finals.

  • Yields four goals in loss
    Skinner stopped 17 of 21 shots in Monday's 5-3 loss to the Stars in Game 3. The fifth goal was an empty-netter.

    Advice: For the second game in a row, the Oilers' defense did well at shot suppression, but it wasn't enough. Skinner squandered a 2-0 lead after the first period and has allowed eight goals on 78 shots through the first three games of the Western Conference Finals. Skinner briefly lost his starting job in the second round, but this is the first time he's lost consecutive contests this postseason. Game 4 is Wednesday in Edmonton, and head coach Kris Knoblauch hasn't revealed if it will be Skinner or Calvin Pickard who starts that game. Rotowire.com Today, 9:10 pm
  • Posts helper in Game 3 win
    Lindell provided an assist, four hits and three blocked shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3.

    Advice: Lindell helped out on a Jason Robertson goal in the third period, which ended up being the game-winner. All four of Lindell's points this postseason have come in the last eight games, including a goal and an assist over his last two contests. The veteran defenseman is seeing a huge role as a shutdown player while adding 26 hits, 39 blocked shots and a plus-1 rating over 16 playoff appearances. Rotowire.com Today, 9:07 pm
  • Contributes assist in win
    Stankoven logged an assist and three blocked shots in Monday's 5-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3.

    Advice: Stankoven set up a Wyatt Johnston tally at 9:08 of the second period, which put the Stars ahead 3-2. The helper ended Stankoven's three-game dry spell. The 21-year-old has stepped into a middle-six role and handled himself well, picking up seven points, 27 shots on net, 20 hits, 16 blocked shots and a plus-4 rating over 16 playoff outings. He's got a bright future, but for now Stankoven is filling a supporting role. Rotowire.com Today, 9:04 pm
  • Dishes pair of assists
    Benn logged two assists in Monday's 5-3 win over the Oilers in Game 3.

    Advice: Benn has two goals and four helpers during his current four-game point streak, with all of that offense coming at even strength. The 34-year-old helped out on Wyatt Johnston's go-ahead goal in the second period and Miro Heiskanen's empty-netter in the third. Benn is up to 13 points, 34 shots on net, 45 hits and a plus-3 rating through 16 playoff contests as a reliable veteran in a middle-six role. Rotowire.com Today, 9:02 pm
