Oilers finally play home game, face Bruins

The Edmonton Oilers have one of the league's top players in reigning two-time scoring champion Connor McDavid. But heading into their home opener, the spotlight may be on the club's defensive unit as they are tasked with shutting down one of the NHL's top lines.

Edmonton finally plays at Rogers Place on Thursday night when they face the Boston Bruins, who are led by the red-hot trio of Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and David Pastrnak.

The excitement of playing at home for the first time comes after Edmonton (2-2-0) rallied from a three-goal, third-period deficit to top the Winnipeg Jets 5-4 on Tuesday night. That ended the Jets' 11-game regular-season home winning streak.
